    Hello

    I got my Doppler today and was all excited.

    Put the Gel on my tummy and heard nothing and thought may be at 13 weeks it was too early. So I thought I would test it on my own heart. Nothing again and thought may be it was broken.

    My DH walks in and I told him what I was doing (quietly saying it cost £25 incl p&p) and he took it off me and tried to listen to his heart (after asking if I switched it on :roll: ).

    He then pointed out I hadn't pushed the headphones into the socket properly :oops:

    We found the babies heartbeat straight away and I could hear it moving around too. :D :cheer:

    When I got mine it took me ages to work out I had to remove a seal from the battery to form a connection. You're not alone! :lol:

    Me... I just spent an unreasonable time laughing at my own heartbeat. Managed to find the baby's quite easily but was quite late on when I first tried.

    I must confess I've also tried to listen to my guinea pig's heart but she has too much fur. :rotfl:
