Im seriously considering buying a fetal doppler as im such a worry wart.I had one of the cheaper ones that just come with headphones for about £25-£30 and didnt rate it really so im thinking of buying a proper one, they are about £80-£100 on ebay and work from 10-12 weeks using ultrasound instaed of just being a microphone.Anyway, im wondering if anyone has one or has used one, which one was it and what did you think about it? Thanks Em x

Emma I rented one from Hi Baby on a month to month basis, glad I did cause you tend to stop using it at a certain point but then again you could always sell it on again x

As far as i can remember i think i was about 7 wks, you couldnt hear it v well but you could see the doppler display the heartbeat, i think i was about 10 wks when i heard it properly. It was the same one that your midwife would use, comes with the gel. Think the website is

I got one a couple of weeks ago the Hi Baby that shows the heart rate numbers. Im using it every day so far, and most times find it easy to use.

Amazing tool for pregnancy!
I found this 2.5 MHz Fetal Doppler Fetal Heart Monitor Backlight LCD w Rechargeable Batteries & Gel during my pregnancies.Its such a reassurance to be able to listen to baby's heartbeat when you feel anxious.

It works from as early as 10 weeks pregnant!

This is the LCD version which shows the actual heartrate of the baby.

Retails for $82.99.

Write to for more info.
