Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I am trying to find out how early my baby's heart beat can be heard and through which way do they find it?

10 weeks at the earliest usually, by 12 weeks for sure. It's harder to hear early on if you've got some extra belly fat or a "deep uterus". They have a little machine that they scan over your pelvis and later when you're further along over your belly and they use a jellyish goo as lube and to help the sound carry. It's easy and painless- unless your dr or nurse is pushing hard trying to find it, then it can be uncomfortable. But really, it's one of the best parts of being pregnant :)

I have always heard my baby's heart beat at 6 weeks when they do the pelvic ultra sound.
