Heart Beat Dopplers

Anyone had any luck with using a heart beat doppler at 11 weeks? If so, what brand, make, etc. ? I am paranoid after having a missed miscarriage in Feb. that I will lose this baby. I think I can be reassured if I could hear the heart beat often.

  • I don't know about brands. My midwife loaned us one for my 2nd pregnancy. My 1st ended in stillbirth. :( I heard my son's heart at 9 weeks!

  • 11 wks should be far enough along to hear a heartbeat... never tried an at home doppler but I've heard a lot of people really like them

  • You can google dopplers online I know a couple places where you can either buy or rent them. I think it's pretty neat but I haven't done it lol.

  • Ah crap. I cant remember the brand name but its professional grade. Its not the head phones one. I got it off ebay for 75 bucks. I didnt get it till i was 14 weeks along and started bleeding so im not sure. It sais it worked from 12 weeks up i think?
