Hey all, used our Doppler last night for first time first of all over to the right hand side I heard a slow pumping sound which I thought was the heartbeat but as I moved it over to the centre I 100% landed straight on baby and heard this fast strong beat
Any ideas what the first noise is that i heard? Could it be blood flow pumping???

The placenta probably.

Or your own heartbeat in the distance?

Probably the placenta

when the midwife used a dopple on me the other week, she pointed out the heart beat then another sound wich was a little bit different ans she said it was the umbilical cord!

At my 16 week scan my midwife pointed out the beat of the umbilical cord which sounds slightly different to th baby's heartbeat. It was most likely that.
