Hpts come out negative, but I can hear a heartbeat in the womb. How is this possible?

Hpts come out negative, but I can hear a heartbeat in the womb. How is this possible?

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

If the childs heart beat not begins at around 5-6 weeks means have any problem in womb?

If the childs heart beat not begins at around 5-6 weeks means have any problem in womb?

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

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.?

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

Is there a way for a woman whose womb was removed for medical reasons to have biological babies?

Is there a way for a woman whose womb was removed for medical reasons to have biological babies?

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

When do babies begin to hear voices outside of the womb?

When do babies begin to hear voices outside of the womb?

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 more

Do babies with Down syndrome usually weigh more or less in the womb?

Do babies with Down syndrome usually weigh more or less in the womb?

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
