    I was adamant I wasn't going to get one, because some people have trouble finding the hb and I'd worry myself sick!!

    But I caved...

    Mine arrived this morning and I found the hb and placenta straight away. Its amazing to hear it!

    I don't wana tell u to get one or don't get one, just thought I'd share my experience :) X

    I'll try stay out of it, as I felt a bit guilty for luring Jayjay over to the dark side, but omg it's the most amazing feeling when you sit and listen to that heartbeat.
    HOWEVER, if one day I didn't find the heartbeat for whatever reason, all common sense would go out the window and I'd be sick with worry.

    I think they can be a blessing and a curse xx

    I'm not going to get one for two reasons -
    1) frequent use is thought to be damaging to bubs and i know I'd want to hear it every day!
    2) If I didnt find hb one day I'd be sick

    I'm too neurotic lol x

    Its amazing! Just used mine for the first time this pregnancy :D so reassuring! I think if you search hard enough you're more than likely find hb everytime, once you're used to it that is. Its just so reassuring to hear hb until you start to feel them moving :) then you don't need it anymore x x

    I think it would be so amazing to listen to the heartbeat when you want.....but I know I'd go out of my mind if I couldnt find a heartbeat and I couldnt risk that!!! But it is entirely up to yourself, do what you feel is best for you! xx
