    Hi girls,
    I've won a cheap doppler on Ebay a without the gel, what else could work? Moisturiser? Conceive plus?

    Umm I started using mine at 13 weeks I think. They are wonderful as long as you don't take them too seriously, ie, don't freak out if you can't find the hb & don't use them for "reassurance" if you think something is wrong x

    I use baby oil. Works great & does not make all your belly sticky.

    I used mine from around 10/11 weeks. We found babys HB very quickly & never had trouble in not finding it. Theres a VERY clear difference between yours & babys. I do mine every Wednesday night laying bed, Record it & post it on FB to annoy everyone with my baby updates :p

    Search for a "Train" not a "clock"

    There is a new Windows Application for Fetal Dopplers named UnbornHeart.

    The application displays an instant heart rate during a fetal heartbeat listening. It calculates an average pulse rate and draws a fetal heart graph after you stop listening. It records the fetal heartbeat to an audio file and allows recording of your baby's movements.

    You can also choose to upload the fetal heart graph from your computer to a Free Online Service where it is stored for you. The Online Service shows a trend graph of long-term fetal heart rate development and allows sharing of heart graphs on Facebook.

    With the application you get more from the moments when listening to your baby's heartbeat. It's also a great way for a father-to-be to bond with his unborn baby!

    Baby's heartbeat sounds more like the rate of a moving train, where as ours/adults is around rate of a clock.

    YouTube is very good for examples, learn the difference first.

    Also learn the noise of your placenta - that's more of a whoosh with a beat
