    For the last few days I have been hearing a new noise when i listen in - its like a water slooshy sound and really weird, sounds like if you were to dip your hand in water - is that the baby moving?

    I hear the same sound (I'm 13+5) And I've wondered too, it does sound like baby moving around.

    Lol honestly the sound nearly deafens me lol I think baby plays with me abit.I've been using the Doppler everyday since 9+4 and it's got so much louder,but baby used to just move away quickly,now I put the Doppler there and baby sounds really distant like near my spine so I hold the Doppler in the same place and baby must come right to the front as the hb vibrates and then I get a massive "boom" and baby has swam away again lol seriously telling me to bugger off I think lol xx

    :haha: I had serious stomach cramps last night and I was really worried so I got my doppler out and heard baby straight away only for about 10 secs then s/he disappeared but it was reassuring baby was saying "im ok mummy"!!
    (I think the pains are because im constipated :blush: but you cant help fearing the worst - dopplers are sooo reassuring)

    I dont think its the placenta - ive been hearing that for a few weeks now and its is a different sound, the placenta is like a whoosh, this is a different sound and only now and then very spontanious.
    I used my doppler on my friend who is 17 weeks experimenting and i heard the same sounds but louder so i hope it is baby saying hello lol.
    Baby was right wiggler on the scan as well :)

    Its the baby moving!! :) :) i swore i felt it yesterday.. maybe just being hopeful lol. At my last doc appt my doc made the comment of not being able to get a proper reading cause the baby was moving about so much and messing with the reading.

    I agree, I'm sure it's the baby moving. It sounds like someone splashing around in the bath, if you had your head under the water.
    It's a lovely sound, I've been hearing it recently too =)
