    I seen them on Ebay and just wondered if they were any good? And when you can hear your baby with them?

    Yes I've got one, an Angelsounds one. You're supposed to be able to hear bubs from about 12 weeks I think, but some people are earlier and some are later. x

    most are around 12 weeks, but it can be frustrating..
    i know just the midwife finding my bub's heartbeat took a while, but i'm a bigger girl, so i duno if that's why..

    i don't have one, but i know lots of the girls on here do!

    I have one. I haven't used it for a while now - but it is great in the early stages from about 12 weeks onwards. When LO is too small to feel movements, it's nice to be able to hear that they're ok. I also had an angelsounds.
    One word of advice though - make sure it is a DOPPLER and not a FETAL HEART MONITOR. They are very different and you won't be able to hear baby with the monitor. A few girls got caught hout with this one at the beginning of the year.

    Just read an old thread and it seems in a bit on the rubbish side, and an angel one is better so will just get one of those

    I have the Sonotrax off ebay , Heard at 9 weeks :) .
    Love it it shows the heartrate and everything .
    Please please please dont get the summer one hun , Allot of people mistake this for a doppler but it isnt , It is a prenatal listening system ,Allot like using a stethoscope , and baby with them cannot be heard untill around week 23-26 sometimes later .
    Allot of good ones on ebay :) .
    Good luck buying . xx .

    We bought one of the Hi Bebe ones from Ebay for around 40 quid at 11 weeks and heard the HB then - it's a really good doppler and has given me lots of peace of mind when I've been bleeding.

    They are great for reassurance for sure. I used mine loads until I felt baby move, now I only use it if I feel worried about anything. Definitely worth every penny.
