So I purchased a Fetal Doppler for at home so that I could listen to the baby’s heart beat and feel good. At first my husband thought I was insane because he didn’t think the sound would be good. The first few tries I was able to find my heart beat but not the babies. Even the Nurse Practitioner at my last appointment could not find it. But today I had my NT testing and all that jazz, and saw the heart beat on the screen. Well tonight we tried the Doppler out again and I found it. It was my first time hearing the baby’s heart beat and it was so freaking awesome! I made a recording to send to my mom and his mom. My husband said it was worth every penny. So if anyone is considering buying one, I would recommend it. Just so much fun and so nice to hear baby while at home in bed :).

@Schatzie821: I KNOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWW!!!! I love mine to death. I am a very paranoid person and I worry a lot so being able to grab my little doppler & check on baby anywhere,anytime has made these last 13 weeks much easier on my mind and heart. I was able to hear the heartbeat at 8w and now at 12w6d, it’s majorly loud & clear.
I think your very smart to write this post up because I know *so many* women on here who come from the TTC boards and M/C boards who are now pregnant and very worried….I think the doppler is def the way to go because honestly it allowed me to not be the panicy crazy lady that I really am 😉
What kind did you get? I got something like “Sonoline B” in blue….it’s funny because my OB’s doppler is also Sonoline brand but hers is way more hi-tec than mine:)

Yes we got the Sonoline B was well! It was relatively inexpensive compared to a lot of the other things I looked at ($60 new). But much higher quality then some of the “pocket ones” that didn’t really have a probe attached. We’re really happy with the purchase. And my mom LOVED hearing it. She wanted to use it on me, but I said maybe in a few more motnhs lol.

I’m going to get one the next pregnancy. I never got to hear the heartbeat because my doctor did an ultrasound every time, so I always saw it. At least until 20 weeks. I already told hubby that we will be buying one. 🙂
