I have a question that some might find stupid...but I'm curious & interested in learning for the future.... 1. Is there ANY way to "'see'" the babies heartrate when laying on your back. I mean...can you see your stomach fluttering with the heartrate (guess you might have to hold your breath)...

i have no idea but i would guess no. i would think the only thing you could see through your stomach is the baby kicking, but only very far into the pregnancy.

the answer would be no but like ksm said when you are in your final weeks you will see the kicking

no and I know whatyour talking about when i lay on my tummy I see MY heartbeat it has something to do with the body pumping extra blood to the baby I believe.

I had just thought I read somewhere where someone had seen their babies heartbeat when they held their breath. Me...when I lay down & do lower stomach is pulsating double than my regular pulse. I held my finger on my main artery between your leg & your pelvis & that went 1/2 of what my stomach was pulsating. I'm currently not 'positive' I'm pregnant, as I'm 20 days late & still testing negative on the dollar store tests, but I have all the symptoms still...include the weird cramping (not painful) every day/every other day at different times....temps still elevated (haven't been below 97.9 for weeks). I'm going to get a blood test the end of the month (waiting to miss one more af) & I'm also curious as to why MrsShelton tested positive on a FRER & at the doctor..but went & bought a dollar store test to show her family & it came up negative. Therefore, I might go purchase a FRER.

I know what you're talking about, but its not the baby. I've seen it before when I wasnt pregnant. Its just a pulse somewhere I guess and it makes your stomach twictch. I thought before when I was younger and saw that I might be pregnant, but wasnt
