    I know I've been posting about dopplers alot lately lol! But I have been determined to find a good one! I ended up with angel sound one and it should be here on Monday :)
    Can anyone give me a quick guide on how to use it?! I don't want to do it wrong and panic cause I can't hear anything! Just where on my belly? Do I press? How hard do I press? Do I rub it all over?
    Thanks!xxx

    I have angel sounds one too. They're good.
    Just use the gel (or oil/moisturiser will work too) and depending how far gone u are (I can't see tickers) place it on ur tummy/just above pubic bone. If ur quite early then baby will be very low! Don't panic if u can't hear it, they're are sooo good at hiding! Also when ur using it (use firmly but u don't need to press hard) try point it... So stay on one place and aim it left right up down Etc, then move a bit further if u haven't found it and do the same till u can. It can take a while to find it, and I always found it best in the morning when my tummy wasn't digesting food and making lots of different gurgling sounds. Check ur hb first so u know to compare it. Baby's hb will be a lot faster!
    They say if its above 140bmp is a girl (old wives tale but worked for me) xx

    I have posted a good youtube video that shows how to use it on your other post hun. I first used mine at 17 weeks and I found it about 2 inches below my belly button, I found it really easily everytime but the other day it took me a good 10 mins as bubs was proper trying to hide and get away from doppler so as others have said don't worry if it takes a few mins to locate :) xx

    I got one around 16 weeks and found it really hard to find, and when I did it dissapeared quite quick. I placed it just above pubic bone then sort of tilted it upwards. The further along you get the easier and stronger it is. Just be patient. I have always found it, it just sometimes takes a while. If you have no luck try jumping round a little to move baby and have another go.
