Hearing Baby For First Time

Posted by on Aug. 10, 2014 at 2:53 AM

I got myself an fetal doppler and I am confused on what I am hearing. I know I can for sure hear my pulse and than If I slightly move the probe I get an very fast heartbeat. Sometimes I can pick my heartbeat and an rapid one at the same time.


My pulse is 77-89 BPM. But, the other one is 130-160's.....


Do arteries sound this fast? Or, is this bubs heartbeat?


I have a video please watch and let me know what you hear.

I am 17 weeks along. And, have no clue what I am hearing besides an really fast heartbeat. But, it doesn't sound like an train or galloping. That's where I am baffled.

I can occasionally pick up my heart and the rapid at the same time, the rapid heatbeat likes to hide behind my pulse a lot. And, occasionally I can get the rapid one alone.

Just not sure if I am getting baby, or an artery or something.

At 17 weeks, you're most likely getting baby. You wouldn't have a rate that high anywhere else in your body.

So, it doesn't exactly "have" to sound like an train or horse gallop to be baby?

I posted in the January group as well. This video was taken at 11 weeks or so but baby's heartbeat sounds the same now, just a tad slower.

Okay it sounds close to that one you posted in this video I took of my baby girl.

Congratulations on the twins

That heartbeat range sounds consistent with my baby's at that stage. I get to hear her every doctors appointment and it just sounds like swooshing and little rapid taps to me.

 haha no. Our last name starts with a B, and we didn't know what we were having then so I just called her Baby B for a long time.
