    yep, I'm over 24 weeks and the most reliable place to find HB is right low down, as low as I first found it at 17 weeks.

    Midwife got it really high up on Monday, which surprised me, but she felt his position first, it wasn't a random guess. I wish I could tell by feeling what is what in there!

    Yup! Same experience here. Mine is low still, I'm assuming its upside down. And it's harder to find because it's always swimming around! I hear so many whooshing noises.. then the heartbeat will come in and out as it's wiggling by.

    I used mine till about 21 weeks and it ws pretty much always low down. MW listened much higher and got a better 'signal'!

    I don't bother now as she kicks me continuously :)

    yer i use mine now and again. I think because they seem to move more as they get bigger cos i find her HB then you here her wriggling and its gone again!

    I still use mine as well! At least twice a week if I think of it. We can find it down low still or right below my bellybutton as well. We typically go down low first though because that is the most reliable spot for finding it! Have fun!! :hugs:
