    I was just curious to find out if anyone ever listens to their preggo doe's bellies for the kids heart beats (with a stethoscope, of course). If you've tried, were you successful? At what point during gestation does it become possible to hear the kid's heartbeats? Thanks in advance for any replies. :)

    I too listen for the heartbeats. Its amazing to hear them. I have several disposable stethoscopes from the hospital and they work great. Usually the last month is when I can hear them best.

    I'm guilty too.... though it's hard for me to get a good heart sound, mostly all I hear are gut sounds and moms heartbeat.

    I must admit... I bought a stethoscope from Hoeggar's for this very purpose... I haven't done it yet but I definitely will soon, my Em is due in about a month!

    Has anyone been able to tell multiples vs. singles from listening to the heartbeat, or is that pretty much impossible with all the other noises in there?

    I just heard the heartbeat and knew there was a baby. How many I couldn't tell until they came out :)
