Can you hear your baby's heartbeat with a stethoscope at 14 weeks?

Before 20 weeks of pregnancy, fetal heartbeats are typically monitored by doctors using a heart rate Doppler. While buying or renting an at-home Doppler is possible, it is often too expensive. Thankfully, after 20 weeks a baby's heartbeat can often be heard using a relatively cheap and easy-to-procure stethoscope.

Likewise, can you hear the baby's heartbeat with a stethoscope at 10 weeks?

From 6-10 Weeks. When your baby is six weeks old, they will look a bit like a tadpole and will have a large bulge near their heart. The heartbeat will first be detectable at this point, but not with a stethoscope: it will take a vaginal ultrasound to hear it.

How can I check my baby heartbeat at home?
