    Difficult to find first time so tried again a bit later after another drink so bladder was fuller then heard it clear as a bell. Beating between 163-170 and definately only one! :cheer:


    Wonder if anyone on here has found out they're having twins with a doppler before the scan showed them?

    Under 12 weeks it helps to have a full bladder as the bubs is still below the pubic bone. It also depends if you have a doppler or a prenatal listening monitor. Dopplers can pick it up from 8 weeks or so, the other type some people have struggled to find the HB even well into 20 weeks.

    What I found with DS and this one is to be patient and keep the doppler still in one place for about 20 seconds before moving it as the baby fades in and out as its moving about. You should be able to get the HB with an angelsounds one hun. Start at your belly button and move down in a straight line to about 2 inches above your pubic bone and just be patient :) The angelsounds definately work as quite a few ladies on here have them.

    Centre in around the whooshing then just stay in that area, sounds like galloping horses :) Good luck!

    I've got an angelsounds doppler too...
    Try really really low down, like just above where your pubic hair is/would be. Make sure your using plenty of gel too. Good Luck!
