    I was starting to get a little nervous that we were telling everyone at Xmas. I was worried that things would happen since our last scan and then we would get bad news at our scan after Xmas.

    So I whipped out the doppler today and found baby's HB. :) It was awesome, nice and fast at around 175 bpm. I'm feeling a lot better about everyone finding out in 5 days. :flower:

    That's awesome! I've been debating buying a doppler...how early can you hear the heartbeat?

    I think that people hear as early as 7 weeks but I didn't really want to try earlier. I'm 9w3d and I found it within a few minutes and could definitely see it was the baby's.

    My recommendation is that you make sure to get one with a digital display which shows the bpm. If I had to go off of hearing alone I don't think I'd have a clue. But with the display I can see if the noise is nothing, my heart or the baby's.

    This is the one I'm going to buy, if I buy one (who am I kidding, it's just a matter of time before I cave and buy it lol). By the time I'd receive it in the mail I'd be at least 9w along so thinking I'd be able to hear bean's heartbeat by then. For some reason in the digital display in the picture it says 2 mHz but in the ad it says it's a 3 mHz doppler which I know is more sensitive.

    The one I'm renting is 3 mhz! It's very exciting! My biggest advice is that when you look for the HB you have to move it very, very slowly.

    Good luck! Looks like it has what you need on a doppler! :)

    Congrats! So exciting! I heard my little one's about 3 weeks ago at my prenatal appointment and was so excited! I'm far too obsessive to have a doppler at home though. It would be nice, but I know it would do me more harm than good.
