Doppler?

So anyone else ordering or renting a doppler? I told myself I was not going to be obsessive this time around and I wouldn't get one. Well I just ordered one!:eek: I wish I would have just bought one with my first pregnancy! I rented with #1 and #2 but since I saw this link http://www.fetaldoppler.net/ on the 1/12 board I decided I should just buy one since it ends up being cheaper! Anyone else going to be crazy like me and get one? I don't use them everyday but I do like to use them a couple times a week.

I have mine from DS#4 and I LOVE it! It's just nice to be able to listen when you want. And it is cheap.

Christina- How many weeks were you this time when you first heard the HB? When I rented them the last 2 times I didn't get the doppler in the mail until like 11 or 12 weeks so I heard it right away. I am wondering how early I might be able to hear it! I think I will try next week when I turn 9 weeks. I feel like maybe I could hear it that early?

I found it once quite early, maybe 8.5 or 9 weeks (and I'm not a small girl). But then the next few days I couldn't find it again. For some reason, I didn't freak. The about 11 weeks it was really easy to find, especially mid day.

I have the 3mhz one so I recommend that one.

I'm really wanting to get one too! I'm going all out for this pregnancy. I saw a post I believe on the jan board about a site that has them for pretty cheap.

Yay I already got mine!! I tired it out on my lunch hour and found nothing! I know it is still super early and I only spent about 5 mins since I had to get back to work but I was soooo hoping I would hear it! I am going to spend some time on it tonight and see if I can't get it. Here is to hoping!:D

Ashley-- I still think it is worth it because you can sell it after (that is what I am doing) and make back most of the $$!

I love having a doppler! Until I felt Ronan move pretty consistently I used it a couple of times a week. Also it was nice to whip out if I ever just felt worried. $50 or however much we spent on it was worth it. If you don't need to be reassured/ can feel the baby move pretty consistently, then its really a harder decision I'd say!!!

I have one I'm borrowing from a friend. With my DS it would only take 5 minutes to find the heartbeat everytime I tried (starting around 9-10 weeks). This one seems to hide a lot more. I tried last Thu nothing, then freaking out a little I got up early Friday morning (didn't have to pee overnight, very unusual) I found the heartbeat after about 10 minutes.

Tonight I tried again and nothing. UGH! Makes me worry and almost wish I didn't have one. I still feel pregnant so I'm trying not to worry. I'm going to try to wait til Thu but I'll probably break down tomorrow night. I get such a high (or so so happy) when I get to hear the heartbeat. I wish this one was easy like my son.
