    Default Doppler

    Who else has a Doppler? I pulled mine out this afternoon just for fun. I'm only 8w6d but figured I'd play. I first heard DD at 10w4d but that was the day I got the Doppler so I couldn't have tried sooner.

    Anyways, I definitely found the placenta today! It seems to be on my left side, so hopefully it stays to one side! It was in the front with DD and definitely affected what you could feel from the outside! I also think it protected my bladder because I never got bladder kicks. Anyways, I *may* have caught the bean's HB for a second but I'm not 100% sure because it was such a short amount of time. It definitely wasn't the placenta as it was on the other side and don't have the 'wind' sound the placenta has.

    I guess I'll try again in a few days with a full bladder.

    That's exactly when I tried with my doppler and I found it!!! It was hard to find but once I found it I could keep it for awhile. Definitely by 10 weeks i could always find it and now I put it right on my belly and the hb is there! so fun!

    Making DH buy me one next payday. The whole waiting to go to the doctor has its downsides sometimes.

    I got it off eBay last pregnancy. I'll get you a link:

    New Blue Medical Model CONTEC 3MHz Baby Doppler Prenatal Heart Fetal Monitor Gel | eBay

    That's the one I have. So worth the money!

    I just read you can't hear it by Doppler till 10 weeks... Sometimes at 9 in a thin person. That surprised me! I thought you'd be able to hear it sooner than that. I love hearing the heart beat!

    I think it depends a lot on the machine and the person. I'd think you uterus gets higher sooner with 2 and subsequent pregnancies.

    Well I pulled out my trusty Hibebe Bistos that I got when pregnant with DS1, 9w exactly and we have 180bpm! This is the earliest I have ever found it, always had to wait until 10-11w with DS2 and DD.
