any of yall using at home fetal heart dopplers?? if so how often do u use them? the US tech at my drs office told me not to use mine often, but ive read that they are safe to use everyday.. i miscarried in 2010 and if i dont hear my babys heartbeat everyday i would be a nervous wreck.. specially since i cant feel her moving too much yet.. im 17 weeks, i feel little flutters here and there, but not complete fetal movement yet. so how many of u use them and how often?? and have u asked ur dr about them? 

heres the one that i use.

I got one off ebay, but couldn't use it until around 20ish weeks because I am not a size 5.

I have a pocket one. Use it like every four days or so. But when I do listen its like two min tops. My doc is more worried about me not finding the heartbeat and freacking out. So I try not to put to much weight into finding or not finding it, but luckily I have found it every time.

I used mine probably too much, but she has grown just fine with each week, she is right on track for how far along I am. I stopped using it so much when she started moving more. It was my saving grace in the 1st and part of the 2nd trimester!

I had one like that and heard the hb at 11 weeks, it's ok to use it every now and then. :)

I have the exact one! I have used mine several times. I haven't used it everyday, but some days it does take me a bit to find baby.

I always worry that it isn't safe to use daily, but then you see stuff that says it is! I would think if it wasn't safe after a "certain point" there would have to be a label warning-?
