I think 20-24w is ideal. And I believe the cone one is called a Pinard Stethoscope.

Re: fetal heartbeat with stethoscope?

Found this on mothering.com. Scroll down a bit. Seems to be a pretty detailed instruction on using a stethoscope.

My husband swears it is possible! He has even thought about getting us one to try it out! Let us know if it works for you!

Once we got to twenty weeks we could hear it with a stethoscope! My doctors office told us to use ky jelly on my belly to help with the sound so that's what we did at first. After we got better at it, we could find it pretty easily with a dry belly!

sorry, i'm really bad at autocorrect and I don't like proof reading!
