In brief: See below
The incredible hiding baby is something we see fairly often.
Your OB doctor will be able to use other devices, such as ultrasound, to keep an eye on the child.

In brief: Yes
Position of the baby may make the fetal heart more difficult to locate.
When in doubt, do a bedside ultrasound.
