Hi Jacky, My understanding is that HPT's can give false negatives but it is very rare that they give false positives so, on that basis, you are pregnant, but you need to get a test by the doc to be sure. If you are 10 weeks then I wouldn't have thought your hubby would be able to hear the baby like you suggest. Bearing in mind the current size of your baby (about an Inch I think!) then it is extremely unlikley you would be able to hear it. I would suggest that you get hold of a Doppler monitor as I have done, but even these don't work until at least 12 weeks (possibly more) have gone past. Hope this helps S.

No your husband won't be able to hear it through you stomach. Even at the last trimester he would need a stethescope. Anything before about 30 weeks requires doppler and before 12 weeks ultrasound.
