  • Is normal if you can't hear the heartbeat with those. I never could hear my son's heartbeat at all.

  • I have one and it's worked a few times and I'm only 19 weeks. I can't always hear it. Best bet is to just keep trying. Good luck!! =]

  • try not to panic. wait until your next dr appointment and mention this to your dr. is this your first baby? i was always really worried with my first (the only one i have). the movement feels like butterflys in your tummy but stronger.

  • My Dr. said those things are a waste of money and I believe him because mine works like crap.

  • yeah it depends on the position of the baby and it says your suppose to use it in the 3rd trimester. it doesn't work for a lotof people but it's not as strong as the doctor's doppler machine so I think it just depends. I think if your bigger and have more layers for the sound waves to go through, it's probably not gonna work as good too.
