    Hey lovely ladies.

    Just wondering how many of us have heard the baby's heartbeat on a home doppler? And if so how many weeks were you along when you did?

    Thank yous :flower:

    NeyNey you should ask wobbs or AG. I think wobbs was a pro at finding the HB early and I think she told AG her tricks ;)

    I bought an AngelSounds one last week and picked up my baby's heartbeat at 11+6. It only cost £20 so was money well spent!

    Heard mine at 8+2 with the Angelsounds one. :)

    Crypto - you probably did hear baby, but like me you probably don't believe it even just a few minutes later. :D It really is quite a lot faster than your own, if you get someone to feel your pulse while you're listening you'll be able to define the two. I also found that making a recording of the hb was very reassuring - I've stuck it on my mp3 player and have a listen every time I'm doubtful it existed.

    I first heard the heartbeat at doc's office at 9+4. I got a home doppler at 11 weeks and have been able to hear the heartbeat at home since then. The first time you use it, it takes a while to find the bean, but after a few times, it's easy to find.
