    Not possible...It is most probably your heartbeat that you're feeling.

    yup is not possible... cause the heartbeat is very small flicking beat... so i think is too weak to feel it.... haha... maybe you too happy already.. haha... slowly you will feel baby moving inside...

    I thought it's the baby heart beat too at first.. but my gynae told me it's my heart beat.. but later on as the baby grew.. i realize that constant pulsing is baby's hiccuping..

    I think not possible, last time i use to be like you, when lying on the bed quietly, feel my stomach thought it's the baby heartbeat but when i ask my gynae, she says it's my heartbeat. dont think so much.. Relax and enjoy the process of being pregnant.. I really miss those days hahaha...

    A fetus heartbeat after 12th week of pregnancy is roughly between 120-160 beats per minute. A normal adult heartbeat is 60-80 beats per minute. That makes a fetus heartbeat nearly double the speed of your own. So if you can feel something that rapid, it would be it, but I highly doubt the possibility of feeling it.

    I dont think can feel baby heartbeat cos got big fat layer on top. Hehe..
    It's definitely our heartbeat cos sometimes the doc can't find baby heartbeat even with the doppler.

    it's most probably our heartbeat that we can feel, but when i was pregnant my hubby could hear baby's heartbeat just putting his ear on my tummy, it was twice the speed of my own. it was so exciting!
