    Awww! That's so lovely!
    Do you mind me asking how to actually use the doppler!?
    Mine should arrive today and Ive just realised that I have no idea how to use it! :dohh:
    Im a bit behind you, and cant really feel anything and have no idea where baby is, as have had no pains, no cramps, hardly any bloat and definitely no movement (or none that Im aware of) and Im not very in tune with my body... sorry to be a pain! xx

    I found the best way was to point it down further than you would think. If you cant find anything go a lot futher to the side, if not try the other side. You need to aim the doppler rather than just plonking it if you get what I mean. I used to always find Nathan on the left side when he was small.
    Use loads of the gel, you hear it much better the more you use. If you can't find it, drink some water, quite a bit and try again.
    Try not to mistake your own pulse or the placenta. It is easily done. The heartbeat is way faster ad sounds like a thumping sound where s your placenta is a wooshing and your pulse is slower.

    Good luck :D

    Guys!!! Ive just tried my doppler again and picked it up!!! Was bursting to go to the toilet so thought id try it while bladder was full, spent 20 minutes with it poking around down low and then went right in the middle of my belly button and pelvis which was higher than where I thought it would be and bingo!! Average 167 bpm

    Hubby and I were sat there like cheshire cats, giggling, smiling, theyre great! Sooo glad I bought one! Thats me happy for today now :) xx
