    Hey Everyone... I found our baby's heartbeat on my angelsounds fetal doppler today! Its so exciting!!

    My heartbeat was slow and deep... the baby's was higher in tone and sounded like a train.

    I found it right on my pubic bone and slightly to the left on my middle (in case it helps anyone who is looki for their little one)

    That's great!!! I know when I found my baby's heartbeat, it was the most amazing thing. Buying my doppler has really helped me with worrying so much. Congrats to you!!!:happydance:

    I have a doppler but I haven't tried it out yet. I bet it's fantastic to be able to hear the baby's heart beating without having to go to the docs. I can't wait to try it out! :)

    I have heard of people hearing the heartbeat at 9 weeks but I think it is more easily found 11 weeks on. I know I have tried a few times since 9 weeks and not heard a ything til yesterday. I didn't stress at not hearing it but if you are the kind of person who will I woe recommend waiting a couple of weeks. X

    i tried a doppler last week and couldnt get it.
    is it better to do it with a full or empty bladder?

    Hi Meghan... mine wasn't full - I had eaten though...not sure if that made a difference!!

    One tip I would give is that when I found mine I found a really strong heartbeat of mine very low slightly to the left, and then I just tilted the doppler rather than actually moving it and I got the baby's heart... so the move was literally just fractional... I think it would be easy to miss is by making too big a move across your tummy.

    Hope you find yours soon!
