Doesn't really surprise me. Years ago when I worked in OB we would have to use the hand held Doppler with stethoscope style ear plugs to pick up fetal heart tones for patients early in gestation. Babies didn't like it and you could hear them moving away from the USG and pressure. We would joke with the parents that we were catching the baby. This wasn't just movement by pressure, you could actually hear little thumps and kicks as the baby moved from noxious stimulus.

LOL! My last baby used to do that with my midwife. He would be calm, then would suddenly start to move around the second he heard her voice or the doppler came out. Almost like he was thinking, "I'm not doing this again."
