Pulse diagnosis is really hard to explain without getting into too much detail. But basically a practitioner is trained how to feel for different qualities in ones pulse on the wrist, using the first 3 fingers. When I had my pulse taken the first time (a time different than when pregnant) the practitioner knew I wasn't going to sleep until late at night just by feeling my pulse. I've heard of ppl being diagnosed with cancer, or even having had a recent knee surgery simply by a professional doing pulse diagnosis.
How it's possible, well, we all know that what we feel and call pulse, is the rush of blood through our veins. The work of the heart creates the rhythm we call pulse. So if 2 hearts are beating in one body then it makes sense even though the second embryonic heart would have a tiny amount that it's pumping compared to the mothers heart. It is still a pulse and the practitioners are trained to feel for very subtle differences as it is.
Try googling "pulse diagnosis" for more info. It might not relate to early pregnancy specifically but an experienced practitioner would be the best source for that.
