What Does A Baby Heartbeat Sound Like In The Womb
I always feel my baby moving in my womb & this morning & I didn't feel anything at all. & press down on my tummy to feel the heartbeat &theres nothing?
Motherf Nature: The baby is provided with oxygenated blood from the mother through the umbilical cord. He/she does not need lungs at this stage, only after birth. Read more
My wife is 32 weeks pregnant. Reading online that the baby should react to sound in the womb. Our baby has not react/move to sound.?
Did you ask wife?: Most pregnant women do detect fetal movement in general and not always to sound at 32 weeks gestation and if not, it would be a concern to be addressed to her OB MD for additional testing. Read more
Likely your own beat: If you hear a rhythmic beating sound over your lower belly, try to see if it always beats at the same rate as your own heart. A "bruit" or blood flow noise can be heard over narrowed arteries of the kidneys or other pelvic organs in some. It will always match the pattern of your own heartbeat. A fetal heart beat, if audible, will have a separate pattern & generally run much higher than yours. Read more
No fetal heart beat: Yes. The fetal pole is seen before fetal heart tones. At about 6 weeks the fetal heart tones are seen. Ultrasounds before this time may not see fetal heat tones. Read more
I'm 7 weeks pregnant my first ultra sound is this Monday can I possibly hear the babies heart beat? And if not when's the soonest I can hear it??
Heartbeat: The baby's heart starts beating at the 6 week point, and it may be visible on ultrasound somewhere between 6-8 weeks. It can be heard on doppler somewhere between 10-12 weeks. Read more
Fetal Heart Beat: At about 5 weeks gestation, your baby's heart begins to beat. Even though you can not hear the fetal heartbeat until week 9 or 10, ultrasound is able to see a beating heart much sooner. An ultrasound can pick up the heartbeat as a 'flicker' in the chest as early as four weeks after conception (6 weeks pregnant from last menstrual period). If it is not seen then fetus may not be alive. Read more
I came to a doctor today and she made an ultra sound on me, she said I had a dry fetus in my womb. What does it mean?
Unsure: Did she mean that the amniotic fluid was low? Not a term that is used normally. Read more

Can a fetal doppler detect womb sounds, maternal heart beat, and umbilical cord (abdomen the size of a 26 week pregnancy) with a pseudo pregnancy.?
Fetal doppler...: ...Can detect any movement of blood in the body, but with a false pregnancy, all the doppler rhythms should be at the same rate as the woman's heartbeat. Fetal heartbeat tends to be much faster so if you find that, the pregnancy is probably real. Read more
Do ob or gyn do doppler ultrasound or ultrasound scan when a pregnant womb visit their clinic. I want to know as worried of no heart beat after six wk?
Either: Most can do either. If heart motion visualized on "regular" ultrasound, then not an issue. If heard with fetal-doppler, then can count rate. Tell your OB about your concerns. Read more
No: They tend to grow at a pretty normal rate prior to birth. Deficiencies in linear growth will eventually occcur in the average ds kid as they grow older. However, some maintain a relatively normal rate of growth, dependingg on other factors affecting their health. Read more
Takes $$/effort: If the woman's ovaries remain, these can be stimulated to make eggs. At the appropriate time these can be removed and placed in storage. The fathers sperm are added to create embryos which can then be placed in a a surrogate woman who carries the pregnancy.This requires a fertility center with the technical skill and local /national laws that permit the procedure. It is not always successful. Read more
From inside?: We know the basic structures are formed by 12 weeks, but are not sure when they can actually process the sounds like you do to consider it hearing. We know they respond with behavior changes when music is played and sent through the tummy. Babies also will recognize moms voice soon after birth. Since they don't remember back that far we can only speculate. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No correct answer: Children with down's syndrome have certain features that are indicative while in utero. Weight is not one of them. In utero weight is dependent on so many factors including maternal factors that fetal weight cannot be used with any accuracy. In my experience, children with Down syndrome often weigh similar to their siblings in utero. Read more
