    I'm pretty sure i found the baby's heartbeat but when I count BPM there only seems to be about 70 per minute... am i doing something wrong or should I be worried?!

    The babys hb should be between 130ish and 165ish but as it was so low it was probably yours x

    thats is your heart through the pelvic arteries probably (its easier to find that than baby early on) baby will be 120-180 bpm and will sound like a sort of chugging noise. hope you find it soon :D try looking along your pubic bone or just above & angle the sensor in a bit xx
