Ok, so I bought a doppler but I think it's starting to scare me more than comfort me!! I got it because I"ve been having concerns about twins since teh beginning (third pregnancy). I keep hearing two beats. I know it's not my own becasue it is around 60bpm & I always find it first to rule it out, so I know I'm not confusing that. I find one beat around 135 bpm on the lower to middle left side & one immediately after around 148-150 bpm on the upper right side. Now it is my understanding that the placenta is close to my heart beat & the umbilical cord is close to the baby's heart beat....is that correct? Could the umbilical cord or placenta have *such* different rates?
