If you own a fetal doppler....

Thanks mamas!

Re: If you own a fetal doppler....

http://www.pulseoximeteronline.com/fetal-doppler-b.html

this is what I have. I don't remember which website I purchased from it has been over 2 years but it is this exact model. I didn't try it until 12 weeks but it worked great for me, and for 3 of my friends. All on the same set of batteries! I bought some of the gel, but my friends have been using aloe vera and getting good results it is a very budget friendly model and I think there is a model A that is even cheaper without the lcd display of the bpm.

Re: If you own a fetal doppler....

9 wks, 6 days with this one. About 9 wks with the previous one. The one I have is pretty staticy compared with my MW's and even now, at 14 1/2 wks, I have to have a pretty full bladder to find it. I bought it here from FSOT, and can't remember off hand what it is. However, I also bought one of the sonoline B ones like PP and had to return it because the probe didn't work. The guy pretty much said "yeah, that happens. They're cheap. You should buy the $100 one."

I have a hi bebe, I heard the heart beat at 11 weeks. That's when I got it though, I may have been able to hear it sooner.

Re: If you own a fetal doppler....

I have a sanoline B with a 3mhz probe. I was able to get the HB at 7w4d but I'm a skinny mama, from what I've heard that makes a difference? My bladder had to be full and it took me about 1/2 hour to find it. It was very faint but def the baby's HB. Now at weeks 9/10 weeks I find it in a minute and it's much louder than it was.

Re: If you own a fetal doppler....

Any idea how well it would work for a larger mom? I'm a size 16.

Re: If you own a fetal doppler....

ok well I'm a size 2. 10 weeks for me. the OB said that she expected it to me easier to find on me cause I'm so small. So if you haven't heard at 10 weeks I wouldn't think it's something to worry about
