    Purchased the Babyscope iPhone app yesterday. Wasn't going to the expense of buying a doppler but for £2.99 I thought it might be quite fun, particularly for my OH & kids. It uses the microphone on the iPhone in conjunction with some headphones to do pretty much the same job as a doppler. Not found heartbeat yet but it was fun trying. I am only 13 weeks. Just made sure I closed all the blinds in the conservatory first. Anyone else had any joy with this app yet? It seemed to get some good reviews xxx

    Never mind. Not going to lose too much sleep if it doesn't work. Shame. It sounds good. Not going to give up just yet. xxx

    I've downloaded it after reading this. I have found my own heartbeat which is a start! So it definitely works. I'm 24 weeks and 4 days. Haven't found baby's yet but I'm not giving up! Xxx

    I tried it but on the iPhone 5 the earphone jack is the same end as the mic so can't use it as it digs in!! X

    I'm 31 wks now but started using it when I was 16 wks. It took a while to find hb at first but found it everytime since. I always use the boost button too

    I have used it but couldn't hear my heartbeat but I knew it had found it cause of the lines on the screen. I'm gonna use it again at weekend as will be near 17 weeks then :)

    I use these apps, not heard anything yet but am hopeful, just to make u aware they have two apps, get the right one, iPhone 5 has a different app than the iPhone 4 - can hear my own heart good, so in confident. But I'm to early yet.
