    aww mine sounded like a train too. my girls sounded like horses and we dont know what this baby is as it was sitting breach with cord between its legs. everythings pointing to a boy for us so fingers crossed, were hoping to get a private scan soon x

    I also got to hear baby's HB for the first time today! Mine sounded fast lol so maybe it's a girl? Whatever he or she is baby's growing like a weed--the midwife measured me above my dates again. :baby:

    They'll probably offer to listen, but tell you not to worry if they can't find it. Sometimes they can't hear the baby's heartbeat until later. :flower:

    Aww it's always nice isn't it. There was a study to disprove the theory of fast = girl slow = boy. Google it and it gives you a nice graph showing pink and blue dots all jumbled up with no correlation. Shame really I'd quite like a girl and mine is fast :dohh: Still fun guessing though.
