    Which dopplers do you use? I got an angel sounds one and it's crap!! Can't find baby's heartbeat, it's impossible & I don't want to push in too hard. Found my heartbeat but it was soooo faint. Any tips?? Heard heartbeat at midwife appt few days ago so not worried, just annoyed I've got cheap crap lol x

    I got my angelsounds at 10 weeks and found it straight away. Have you had the volume turned right up and pushed the headphones right in the socket? Two mistakes that I've made with mine before!!

    I also agree that it tends to be very low down xx

    Yep I know how low down it is & have volume turned up etc. found mine & OH's heartbeat on it but it was still very faint with volume on full. I might wait a few weeks & try again :/ x

    I'm wondering if yours is faulty then? Cos this is what mine sounded like when I only had the headphones half way in! As soon as I realised my mistake everything was loud.

    Where did you get it from? Do they have a returns policy that you can maybe try get an exchange under the distance selling regulations (or whatever they're called)? xx

    Nope don't think it's faulty because I manage to find my own hb & OH's hb fine! Why can't I find babyyyy??! Is it cos I've got a fat tummy lol. I've literally tried everywhere from just below belly button to hair line to left & right. Now got me panicking there is something wrong & need to find an excuse to go to the docs to hear hb or have a scan lol x

    The reason I'm thinking faulty is because you said when you find yours and OH's it sounds faint, it shouldn't sound like that. If your hb is distant, then it will be nigh on impossible to find baby's xx

    Maybe baby is hiding? I couldn't find hb last night even though normally I find it very easily. They do hide or have their back to you at this stage x
