    Default Home Doppler use

    Well went to hospital last night and after the midwife taking a while to find the heartbeat (which had me balling my eyes out) she FINALLY found jellybean's heartbeat! Phew. Turns out that he/she is deep deep far back hence why I am not feeling a thing!!!
    So happy though!!

    Those who have picked up a heartbeat on a Doppler what does it sound like? I thought I found it, sounded like a galloping horse a kathud kathud kathud kind of noise and the screen read 156. I consulted Dr google and it seems that its described as sounding like a galloping horse but then the soundclip I listened to sounded different so now I'm confused

    Mine definitely sounded like a galloping horse. And always fluctuated around 140-150 ish bpm. Apparently listening to your own then going back to find baby's will help you understand what it's like.
    I found it unmistakeable once I found it and really heard it.

    Can I give some advice??? Hope it's ok to do so. Don't get obsessive about it and remember its not a medical device. A proper one. A couple if times I couldn't find heartbeat with mine... But I knew placenta was in the way and bubs could be lying in a difficult position. I didn't stress. Just did it again a day or two later. Sometimes it was easy and loud. Sometimes faint and hard to follow. Have fun though!!!
