Buried in a box from our recent move, figured I would give it a shot. I am only 9w4d and wasn't expecting to hear anything but maybe my own heartbeat.
I was able to hear our LOs heartbeat crystal clear! I was shocked, I yelled.for my SO because I didn't want to get up and possibly not be able to find it again. This is his first baby, and he was ecstatic to get to hear our baby. I counted the bpm and told him its about 168 and he said, "isn't the fast?" I couldn't help but chuckle and explained to him that its perfectly normal. So glad that I was able to share that with him.
