It's none of anyone's business why the OP wants one. They're not illegal..if she wants one, she can have one.
She doesn't have to justify her reasons to you or anyone else. You've given your opinion so respect her right to make her own decision even if you disagree with it!!

She may feel movements earlier (like I did at 15 wks) or a bit later if, for eg, she has an anterior placenta (not that it affected me like that having one)...whatever!!
It's still her decision @ her right to purchase/hire doppler if she wants @ your scare tactics of "it's heart could stop 10 mins after listening or later that night" to try to strengthen your argument is disgusting IMO
That can happen to any woman at any time in the pregnancy whether she has a doppler or not or whether the baby is developed enough to be able to feel movements or not.
If the baby's not developed enough to feel any movement, there'd be nothing she could do anyway as Mum wouldn't even realise there's a problem @ if she can feel movement there's still no guarantee there either doppler or no doppler!!
ETA-I see the poster in question has edited those comments from her original post below!!

I put this thread under 'Product reviews and recommendations' for a reason. If you don't have a product to recommend to me, this isn't the place for you. I am not a child, and obviously did my research first, and still made the decision to get one. I don't have to to justify why. Thank you for your input.
Now, has anyone used sweet beats?

I heard a hb on my doppler from 8 weeks with both my pregnancies.
Op I haven't used sweet beats, but I hired mine from Belly Beats. They sell them too. Not sure of the price but might be worth checking them out. Good luck.

I also bought the one from the "parentslikeus" website. I have issues trying to get the baby's heartbeat rate to display consistently on the screen, but can still clearly tell it's the baby by the speed of it. It can be screechy/noisy when you move the probe from one spot to another through the air, so don't have the volume on full or hold it right against your ear!
This is my third pregnancy (first was an early M/C) and both latter times I've been able to find a HB from around 14 or so weeks (although not always easily), while I don't feel movement until 20 weeks or so.The MC really freaked me out and the doppler brought me some reassurance in my first pregnancy when I felt anxious in the long month between OB appointments. This time I haven't used it as much, but it still occasionally has been useful for reassurance. (I'm now 36 weeks, and pulled it out a couple of weeks ago just for a listen).
Have you looked on Gumtree or EBay for a second hand one? They pop up from time to time.
