Is someone able to hear my own heart beat on my stomach by ear? or is that not my own heart beat.

Is Your Heart But...: Sounds of your own heartbeat can be heard by someone listening to abdomen. The heartbeat originates in your chest but the sound spreads. If you are sexually active & concerned that you may be pregnant & hearing a baby's heartbeat you should take a home pregnancy test. Signs of pregnancy are missed periods, weight gain, nausea. See your doctor NOW if you think you may be pregnant.
