I ordered the Sonotrax -B doppler from Amazon and received it in the mail today. It cost me $67 with a big bottle of gel. Free 2 day shipping!
I used it right away and was able to find the heartbeat in less than a minute. I am only 11 weeks and 3 days. I was very easy to find. However, I found it in a spot where I didn't expect to locate it. It was off to the left, and I had to press really hard and tilt it to hear it. HB was 161.
Definitely worth the money. I think it is a great deal since renting them for a couple months equals the same cost as buying this one. Just wanted to give you ladies a suggestion on one to get if you are interested!
Lindsey, I did not find the heartbeat on a hospital grade doppler at 10 weeks. I kept trying, but no luck. I had to give back that specific doppler because my friend needed it, so I bought the one from Amazon.
Can you feel your uterus yet? I only felt it protrude above my pubic bone right at week 11. It was like one day it grew all huge. I can find the HB pretty quickly because I know exactly where it will be -- since I can feel my uterus. Maybe you just need to wait another week?
