  • It all depends... Some babies are towards the back of your uterus, which makes it harder to hear them, some are towards the front. It also depends on how big you are (heavier women have more fat between the skin and the uterus, making it harder to hear.

    Having said that, I bought a doppler when I was pregnant, because I had a miscarriage a couple of months earlier, and I was neurotic as hell, heh. I think I spent most of my free time on the couch with my doppler, finding the heartbeat, and I usually didn't have a problem finding it....
