Whats the windy sound on fetal doppler?

I wanna know if the wind sound i hear on my doppler is in fact the placenta or it can be something else.

I don't know what it is, but I do know that it is perfectly normal.  Everyone hears the same "windy" sound.

Hi --  we're glad you found us.  Here's the technical answer to your question-- the uterine blood vessels during pregnancy grow and give a signal producing a whooshing sound. It's normal and will be a sound you miss after you have your baby.

When is your baby due?

Im not sure how far along iam i cant find fetal heart rate all i hear is what sounds like wind blowing fast so far ive read alot of articles that say its the blood flow to the placenta and I've gotten a few responses saying its moms own blood flow.
Basically wanted to know if its a sound only associated to pregnancy.
Its mainly on my right lower abdomen .

Oh, okay.  I understand. Well, I don't know if you would still hear it if not pregnant to be honest.  I always heard it when pregnant and reading I've done said that it IS associated with pregnancy.  

The 'mom's own blood flow' is probably right and the swooshing and wooshing is is blood flowing through those uttering arteries.

So, you have your own doppler and are trying to find a heart beat on your own?  Have you been to the doctor yet?  When was your last period?
