There are heart rate monitors that you can purchase that magnify the baby's heart rate, just like the one your doctor uses. You can also hear the baby's heart rate with a stethoscope. Have your doctor show you the difference between hearing the baby and hearing the placenta. The babies heart rate is faster 120 to 160 beats per minute. The placenta pulses with your heart rate and sometimes is louder than the baby.

If you have any concerns the movements of the baby are a good indication all is well with your baby. Tell your doctor any of your concerns. It is normal to have them. But real worries should be brought to your doctors attention. Mothers are amazingly perceptive/sensitive to their baby's well being even before birth.
