At Home Fetal Doppler?

Has anyone owned or rented one of these? I'm paranoid when I'm pregnant so checking the hb once in a while will reassure me, so I'm looking to invest in one. If you have any experience with one, I'd love to hear about it!

Re: At Home Fetal Doppler?

I thought about getting one with this pregnancy but DH vetoed the idea. I have heard good things about babybeat ones though. You can rent them for however long you need it. Honestly once I feel regular kicks I feel fine. However with this pregnancy I felt them sooooo early that the days I didn't feel them I worried. So now I am trying to get to the zen state that I was in with DS - the one that is out of me.

Good luck in your search!

I bought one this pg off Craigslist. Bebe sounds, I think. I only paid $40 and I have loved it! I don't use it often, only when I feel like I really need to make sure the baby is doing well. I did like being able to find the hb at 9 weeks tho.

I have the sonoline B. I found this baby's HR at just under ten weeks. It is definately reassuring since I'm not feeling the baby yet, but I'll probably sell it once I'm feeling the baby regularly.

Re: At Home Fetal Doppler?

i have one and I love it.... i bought it mostly because I doula for lots of my friends but it has been super nice to hear baby's heart beat when I feel worried. Mind is a more expensive one that can go under water as well so not sure what the brand is though...
