  • I think you might not be able to hear the heartbeat till later on. The doctors ones are alot more expensive and can detect heartbeats alot earlier on.
    I had one, it worked ok. But not until a long while after I had purchased it.

  • i bought one off ebay that was 99 dollars and i was able to hear the heartbeat at a little before 11 weeks. you gotta learn how to use it though it takes some getting use to.
