Quoting Dawn&Leila +1!:" Got my doppler today and tried it out. I think I found the heartbeat, it was around 143 .. But it went ... [snip!] ... around 143 .. But it went away fast. After that i couldn't find it and im freaking out that maybe i didnt find it. Any tips??"


When you think you've found it, hold your other hand up to your chin and feel your pulse. If it matches, its you. If it's faster, its baby.

Btw the number doesnt pop right up on the doppler thats just random numbers. It skips around a lot, you have to find the heartbeat and hold it steady for it to regulate to the right bpm.
It's most likely you found your own though, there's a few arterys down there that are really loud :)

I just got back from it. They found the HB on the doppler (150's :D :D) and I'm measuring right on track!

I asked him if he would do an ultrasound even though we found the HB on the doppler and he said he didn't want to get me excited for a gender until atleast 18 weeks. But my anatomy scan is on the 8th of next month so I might as well just wait until then *shrug*

I'm just glad everything is OK! I have such a great feeling about this pregnancy.

I'm sure everythings fine :)
Just wait a day or two and try again. When i first got mine I couldn't find it, and then I waited 2 days and found it!
Also, if it was the baby it makes sense that it stopped lol the baby is moving around constantly especially if you start pushing on them :)
Mine wiggles away from me all the time while I'm trying to find them lol

Yeah..an hour is a long time to use it lol! I'm sure everything is fine! Wait a week & try again! & have a full bladder when you try to find it..it helps :)
