    I bought one of the Summer Prenatal listeners that you can get in Mcare, Argos etc and I NEVER managed to hear my baby's heartbeat - they are rubbish! I think with the Angelsounds ones you can buy on Ebay you can hear it from about 12 weeks?

    We tried for the first time at 13 weeks and heard it immediately with a Hi-Bebe 200 which is a very good doppler :D

    I'm so addicted to mine! Spent almost an hour earlier just listening to him :)

    I had a baby beets one, I detected the heartbeat at 10+5 weeks. I have ordered the hi-bebe lcd one now though as I'm not happy with the quality of the baby beets one.

    Listening to baby is the bestest thing in the whole wide world :)

    Probably should say though, this is my 4th pg. Apparently if its your 1st baby it is more like 12 weeks.

    I have the angelsounds one. I got it around week 13. I did manage to find the heart beat but it did take a long time.

    OMG... my doppler came today, so had a dabble, heard my heartbeat, then moved it slightly and heard baby!!!

    it sounded like a fast chuggin train!!! OMG!!!!

    never thought id hear it at 10wks!! checked with my friend to see if anything else sounded like a train, and she said, not really! and that heartbeat sounds like a train or galloping horses!!!

    I have the angel sounds one which is brilliant. I heard my lo's heartbeat at around 12 weeks.

    Do not get the one from argos, mothercare or babies r us (summer something). They are not dopplers and will not pick up the heartbeat until much later on. xxx

    I bought this one at exactly 11 weeks and heard it first time. You need to have a full bladder though like you do when you have a scan :)
