Stethoscope for HB?

Does anybody know if you can hear your baby's heartbeat by using a stethoscope? I haven't had any movement in a couple days, and I'm about 17 weeks along ... wondering if that would work. I'm heading to work tonight and we have one I could use there. Thanks!

  • I have never tried but I have heard it works best when you are further along... like end of 2nd tri to the 3rd tri

  • i wouldnt worry about not feeling to many movements right now since u are only 17 weeks give it another week or two n u will feel the baby a lot more as it gets bigger, as for the stethoscope i dont think it will work that early
