Hey ladies I am 12 weeks now and went online and rented fetal heart doppler from heart beats at home. I’m renting it for $16.00 a month. It is scheduled to be delivered today and I’m so excited I can listen to my baby heart beat whenever I want. I rented one before when I was pregnant with my son who is now almost 5 years old. It really helps because my son was really stubborn and didnt move a lot. I was always at my ob because they wanted to keep checking heart beat and doing ultrasounds because he wouldn’t move much for super Long periods of time. So every morning before work I would listen to his heartbeat and when I got home and also before I went to bed. I loved it its not harmful at all. It’s the same hand held doppler they use in the ob offices. So now since I’m 12 weeks I decided to order it earlier and I can listen to my baby and also something interesting for my son to listen to while he is becoming a big brother. have anyone else ordered one before?

@Tutti80: I bought one for $55 & love it. It was frustrating sometimes when baby was “hiding” and I couldn’t always get her HB right away but once I got better at it & she got bigger it was easy to find. Remember to use the gel on the doppler/your belly so you can hear better/capture the sound waves. And if you are having trouble finding baby’s heartbeat wait a while and check later. Good luck, the joy of hearing baby’s heartbeat is amazing!!!

Yep and it has kept me sane! I love love love it. I bought mine off of ebay for like $50, but I’ve listened to it a couple of times a day since week 9 and I’m 12 weeks now as well. I’ve had some spotting episodes a few times so it has been a big blessing to have so I can know baby is still with me.

@Tutti80: I bought one recently off ebay, the sonoline b one and I love it. Trying not to use it too much, not for any real reason – I just dont want to get obsessed with it. Its such an amazing sound to listen to!

Thanks for telling us about this. When I am pregnant I will definitely want one of these – either rent or buy. I have a feeling it would calm me down and just help me bond with the little one. Sounds lovely.
