Dopplers

Hi there

I am almost in my second trimester - will officially be as of tomorrow

I was wondering if anyone had used a doppler to listen to the baby's heart beat?

And if so, do you think it's a good or bad idea and which one have you tried?

Thanks for any help,

Marie

I read they aren't very good (the ones you buy with the headphones) before 20 weeks so didn't get one. I think they could make you more stressed out. BUT I think they could be a lovely thing too. You could hire one for a month. You can get them for about £24/month and they are the same as the m/w use.

Hi, the ones with headphones are rubbish and you cant use them till 20 weeks +. I bought a doppler like m/w use off Ebay for about £70 brand new and loved it. Could hear babies hb's from 10 weeks and could distinguish each baby. If ever I felt a little worried it would give me reaasurance. I just recently sold mine back on ebay for about £40. just do a search on foetal dopplers and buy a second hand one you can always sell it on after xxxxxxx

I use one that I have borrowed from my sister - I do not know the make but it looks similar to the one that my m/wife uses. I find it really easy to use and rarely have a problem finding the heartbeat but sometimes it will come and go.....my midwife explained that this was because baby was moving about!!

I have listened since about 14 weeks and find it really reassuring and is like a big reality that inside of me is my lovely baby !! it's lovely for dh too as he never gets to hear it when visit the m/wife......

I have read a few things that suggest not to overdo the use and so use it only a 2 or 3 times a week .....

HI

I WAS GOING TO GET ONE, BUT MIDWIFE PUT ME OFF SAYING ITS TOO DIFFICULT TO FIND ON YOUR OWN, AND IT WOULD MAKE ME PANIC MORE IF I COULDNT FIND THE HEART BEAT,

BUT NOW I HAVE READ THE OTHER LADIES COMMENTS, I THINK I MIGHT HAVE A LOOK ON EBAY, I AM NEARLY 18 WEEKS AND NOT GETTING ANY FLUTTERS, SO I THINK IT WOULD PUT MY MIND AT REST

Yep had onbe too, just given it to my friend to use as she is 13w pg.

I pcked up hb at 9w with twins, the top twin was very high up and the second twin i couldnt pick up for another week or so, it isnt hard to find at all.

I had the same one the m/w had, it was fab and i couldnt get enough of listening to the hb's every day!

personally I wouldnt bother - I remember the stress from other mothers during pregnancy with DS who were having all sorts of mares with the doppler causing them all sorts of worries that they couldnt hear the heartbeat

they're not perfect

if I ever had worries about the baby I would just go to the docs

at one stage they couldnt find the heartbeat but could see DS's foot kicking the shit out of my tummy so the doctor laughed and said "well we cant find the heartbeat but he's definitely alive & kicking" :D

imho - dont bother - they're not worth the stress

We had / still have one and my DW couldn't have coped without it. As for not being able to find it, you become a pro, so much so that the sonographer at the hospital allowed me to use her fancy machine whilst she looked up the notes...a very very memorable experience!!

best place to hire a doppler?

I have caved...with no visible bump and no movement I need something to let me know all is well!! Can anyone tell me where I can hire a good doppler from, not just the headphone one that you use from 20 weeks? I mean the ones that are more like the midewives use?

Thanks in advance!

using a doppler...

ok, been brave and ordered it and now it has arrived! Just a quick question, if the heartbeat that shows on the LCD screen is around 150 is that the baby or me? Think we found both of them, but wasn't the race horse I had read about!!

lovely to hear...if it was them that is,

I heard my babys heartbeat yesterday and it was more like a train rather thena the galloping horses you read about.
It was much faster than mine as my DH took my pulse to compare.

It would have been babies. A fetal heartbeat is anywhere between 110- and 160 beats per minute. The younger the fetus, the more towards the higher end of the ranhge it will likely be.

Can i just give a word of advice please???? PLEASE if you are going to hire/buy a doppler then please don't make yourself unduly anxious. There are many times when the heartbeat is very difficult to find,(even by experienced midwives) and i do believe that sometimes they can cause more anxiety than they actually help.
I don't want to sound like a worrywort, and i do totally understand how nervous you all are, but use them with care.

thanks ladies...

kski, not sure I will continue to be honest. It is nice but I can see how it will work me into a panic, so think I will stick to the 4 weekly scans!

Ask me again in two weeks though and see if I have left it in the cupboard as intended!!

Pregnancy pillow and doppler

Hi,

I'm looking to buy a pregnancy pillow and a fetal doppler but haven't got a clue about either! Do you have any recommendations which ones are good and not tooooooooo expensive. So far, I have just been surfing the net for them... any sites anyone would recommend or particular brands? Or even shops? Thanks!

Hi hun, I understand why you might want a doppler, I was exactly the same!

We bought one of these second hand off ebay, it cost around £40 and was worth every penny! I made my money back too as I sold it on for £60!

I would not be tempted to buy one of the summer deluxe ones you can get from mothercare for around £30, they are unreliable (especially in the early weeks) and can cause un-necessary panic.

As for a maternity pillow I never had one, instead I used a folded up summer quilt :))

Hi,

I got a pregnancy pillow from Mothercare, it was £24.99, and I must admit it is like another person sleeping in the bed with you but I find it really helps me to get asleep.

I would recommend one as I was finding it really difficult to get a decent nights sleep. I did try a normal pillow, but didn't find this much use. Think it is personal preference though, maybe try the normal pillow first and see how you find it.

I would use a single quilt. I had a long pillow that wasn't long enough or firm enough. If I had my time again I would get a single quilt, roll it up, stitch it into place and use it as your pillow. When you're done you'll have a single quilt for when your baby goes in his/her own bed.

Thanks ladies. Well, I ordered a doppler off the net and have left the pillow for now. I am coping ok with a normal pillow at the moment but sometimes I can struggle sleeping... like now... hence on the net at this time of the night (or morning!). I don't have a single quilt but that sounds like a good idea. I will go into Mothercare and see the pillows first, if not, might just buy a single quilt. Thanks for your advice!

I bought a Betaman500 off Ebay for around £45, it was the same model as my midwife used, when I had finished with it I resold it for £50 back onto Ebay!

In this case where it would cost around £40 to hire one, or you can buy one and actually make your money back have you thought about buying one? :))

Thanks Missy, will keep an eye out on ebay. Did you find it easy to use? How many weeks were you when you first used it? I've heard a lot of mixed reports that it is hard to use and that if you don't hear the heartbeat it can be very worrying and it may just be a case of not using the maching properly. However, the thought of waiting another 6 weeks is too much for me so ....

Thanks again

11 weeks when we heard the heartbeat, it can be extremely worrying when you don't find the heartbeat straightaway. The best thing to do is ask your midwife if she can show you how to use it as it isn't a case of squirting gel onto your belly and putting the probe on there, there are various angles to hold it at to get good clear sound :))

Hiya Laura ...

I bought a doppler when I was 9 weeks :rolleyes: , and couldn't pick up the heartbeats till I was just over 10 weeks ...
To be honest, I loved mine .... never had any problems finding their h/b's (except for that first week between 9 & 10 weeks) and I found it massively reassuring ...
If you do have problems finding the h/b, try to keep a level head ... and bear in mind that the baby is quite small at this stage, and the heart even smaller .. probably the only reason you're having problems finding the h/b is not because there's anything wrong .... just because you're not looking in the right place ...

Let us know how it goes ....

:)

Hi Kirsty

Thanks for your post but I think you either misunderstood what I was saying or I wasn't clear in my post. I didn't say I couldn't find a heartbeat (haven't got a doppler yet) but that I had heard mixed reviews on buying a doppler as some people couldn't find a heartbeat and got panicked. So I wanted some advice on whether it was worth buying one and if there was a particular doppler that people could recommend.

I'm just over 14 weeks now, and have today purchased a doppler, so am sure I will hear the baby's heartbeat when I use it.

I'll let you know how I get on.

Laura hun, I think it was you who misunderstood Kirstys post! She said *if* you don't hear babys heartbeat, referring to *if* this should happen, not as if it has already! We had lots of scares (even in the later weeks) where we couldn't find Lollys heartbeat, it has even happened with my midwife not being able to find it before, which is why Kirsty was trying to reassure you :)

Hope it turns up soon hun, it is an amazing sound :D

So sorry Kirsty, there you are trying to reassure me and I get it all wrong!!!

I just saw the bit that said "probably the only reason you're having problems etc etc." and just thought ... well you know.

I feel like my wires are all crossed and I'm a bit oversensitive and keep misinterpreting things - my hubby says I'm like I'm on a different planet.

Thank you girls for your advice it really is appreciated.

I got my doppler this morning so will use it tonight when hubby gets home and will let you know how I get on.

Take care

No probs Laura ...

Blame it on the hormones. :rolleyes:

Can't wait to hear how you get on, I'm sure at 14/15 weeks you have a good chance of finding the h/b.

Tip for you ... try lying on your side if you don't fid it straight away. That way all your bits fall to one side and you can get really close to where your womb is sat.


Good luck hun

Thanks for being understanding. My sister, who has had 2 kids, said she was the same and agrees it's the hormones and that she was on a different planet when she was pregnant! :weehee:

I got the doppler and heard the heartbeat and it was amazing. I found I could hear it more clearly when my bladder is really full. I will try your technique as well Kirsty.

I also think I've felt the baby move, some slight flutterings like a butterfly's in there! I can't wait until I am further along with a bigger bump and feeling the baby move.

Hugs

Take care

Laura...

Isnt it just wonderful to hear your baby....I love my doppler! :D
I was very worried early on as the MW was unable to hear her, so I hired one and I can find it easier then the MW can now!!! I too had to have a full bladder at about your stage but soon you wont need that eaither. Now she is jiggling about and that makes me so happy. I still use the doppler about once a week just to hear her. I find all this wonderful for feeling close to your baby.

Happy doppling hunny!! :))
