For my first pregnancy I bought a "Summer" doppler but didn't get on with it at all, never found our baby's heartbeat even when heavily pregnant (or couldn't say for sure anyway). It didn't worry me I just got annoyed that it didn't seem to work! I had high blood pressure so got seen by the midwife quite a bit anyway so didn't feel like I was missing out!
I'm now just over 10 weeks with my second and don't have my first scan booked for another 2 and a half weeks!! I would love to hear the heartbeat but don't want to waste money on another one - we sold the last one on eBay even before she was born!
I searched Doppler on here and it seems quite a few people use them and can find the heartbeat quite easily - was I doing something wrong before or was it a bad make? I know some people are against them in case you get worried when you can't find the heartbeat but I didn't worry last time, I would just like to know if I got one again that it would "work" - perhaps some brands are better than others?
