Finally!

Found the heartbeat on the home doppler...166! Love that sound!

Is your doppler 3mhz or 2mhz?

I bought a 2mhz one on Amazon awhile back for my cousin (it was about $28 ). She let me have it back but I can't hear the heartbeat yet. It picked up the heart rate # on the digital display, but we couldn't hear it. So now I wish I bought her a 3mhz one haha.

Amazon doesn't seem to sell them anymore for legal reasons though. Sad

Oh that is great news! Yay!

I don't have a dopplar, and haven't been back to the doc, so we're just waiting for Tuesday, when we get to see the whole baby on ultrasound! Smile

I have the Hi Bebe BT200, it says it is a 2mhz I believe...it was $120 on Amazon several years ago when I was pregnant with my daughter. I've been trying for the last week to find the HB with no luck, I looked at You Tube videos tonight to see the best position and it worked!

Hopefully yours will pick up on the doppler soon!

Woot woot. Can I toot my own horn? So I had only used the doppler twice on 2 different days. I just did it again for a 3rd time and BINGO!! HB went from 178-193, but seemed to want to be around 180 most of the time. EXCITING! Biggrin

I have the same one Kristie does... I've tried every other day or so for the past week and haven't been able to find it yet. I'm only 10 weeks 2 day though.. so in a few days I'll try again. I'm plus sized too so that makes a difference.

I bought mine used for $35 bucks... I know I can sell it when I'm done for the same or there abouts, which is the only reason I bought it. I rented one my first pregnancy but it's so expensive... way cheaper just to buy one for $50 or less then sell it when you're done. I used it a ton with DD... whenever she wasn't moving much in the later months and before I could feel her in the early months.
