baby dopplers


my sister bought me a graco fetal doppler from walmart a few weeks ago....after i opened it and tried it out, i started reading and it states it is not for use before the third trimester that is sucky. soooo i just went on ebay and bought myself a 3mhz probe doppler that says it is fda approved and for use from 12 weeks and on. anyone having luck with these? the doctor hears the hearts with his doppler in the office, so i figured there has to be one out there on the market that i can use at home that actually works??????????????????

that is what i bought hope it works. it should be here in the next week. the doctor says its hard to differentiate between the two heartbeats since i have twins, but i thought maybe if i play with it enough and get different reading i could hear them both.

I have a Sonoline B, too. I had a difficult time finding the baby's HB until last night.....found it right away. My DH was much better at finding it. The heart rate measurement part doesn't work well, but I don't really care.... just want to hear the HB.

thank you ladies for your great responses the graco one i have is crap haha. after i couldn't hear anything but static, i decided to look at reviews online and there wasn't a single good one. just goes to show you get what you pay for. i figured i've waited so long to get pregnant, i might as wel spend the 50 bucks to have piece of mind that everything is going ok. the past few days, i have had less symptoms that i had been having, so of course i started to worry; although, i've been reading alot of symptoms taper off around 15 weeks or so. any thoughts?

I have the angelsound fetal heart monitor and I have been using it since I was 21 weeks and it works great, I would definatly recommend it. I bought mine from ebay (new) for around 25, you need to buy some extra gel as well because it works better with the gel, bought the gel from ebay as well for about 5. Hope this helps
