  • I had bebe sounds with my first one. It didn't work until I was like 7 months along. With my second I actually rented a doppler. You can find them for as low as $14/month. They recommend that you don't use it everyday and to check with your dr. first.

  • I have a fetal doppler and I used it about once a week. I loved it! Actually if your interested I would be willing to sell it to you......its lighly used, basically brand new condition. I paid $120 for it! I bought it off ebay. Its believe its Hibebe brand or something of that sort, if you want to read up on them and let me know!

  • I had the bebe sounds one, and it didn't work for me. All I could hear was every sound the joints in my hand and wrist made with movements so small you didn't know you were moving. :( I was pretty sad about the waste of money and being so excited and then let down.
