    Hi
    Quick Doppler question- I know it's early but ive been trying to use my Doppler but with no success. One problem is my flabby tummy!!
    But the other is that the place I found it in my last pregnancy is were I now have a c section scar, and it hurts to press down on it or very near it. I'm so frustrated, I want to find it but then it hurts!!
    Anyone else have this problem...?
    And solutions...??

    My scar is all the way across from my left to right side- is yours just on one side?

    Thanks littleblonde. I guess the problem is mainly the pain as I can't stick at it because it hurts my scar! Perhaps I should try aiming a bit higher? But I'm guessing the baby is still v low!
