Question fetal blood flow vs fetal heart beat

I am 14 weeks pg and rented a home doppler. I can hear the fetal blood flow (I have a tape with an example of all sounds I could hear) but didn't hear the heart beat yet. I think I might be confused about the various sounds! Anybody with the same problem?

Re: fetal blood flow vs fetal heart beat

I rented a doppler too and am still using it (I am almost 20 weeks now). I found that it helped a lot if I had a full bladder. I would drink about 20 oz of water and then wait about an hour and then check and I was able to find it everytime! It seems that for a long time I could only find the baby on the lower left side, now that I am farther along I can find the heartbeat right in the middle. Hope that helps though!
