Also there is an app for iphone called istethoscope, and you could see if your parents have a bebe type foetal heart listener around. Basically you need a structure to echo sounds inside of to focus on a point (funnel, lid of some kind, plastic bottle cut off inches below the neck) and a tube to carry sounds up to your ears.
You could try laying your chest against a door or wall frame and placing your ear against it.

Have a bath, and stick your head under water (only to cover to your ears obviously, so you can breathe). Relax, and you'll be able to hear your heart beat. It really works, so try it.
