I have one, it's a hi-bebe.

I don't really use it that much, for one i'm too scared to now that i'm in the 2nd trimester, I used it way more in the first....Another reason my doctor told me my placenta is in the front, which I thought, and it makes it really hard to find the heartbeat, and the longer I Have to look the more worried I get...He has a hard time finding it on the doppler too.

I rented one from bellybeats.com. I can find the heartbeat in about 2 seconds now whereas I was looking for a good 15-30 minutes before! I used it the other day right before I put the big announcement on Facebook that we were going to have a baby (I was worried, I don't know, that maybe the baby's heart had stopped and I just didn't know it then if I put the announcement up and found out, I'd be crushed? I'm weird...)

Angelsounds

It takes about the same time to find the HB, 10-15minutes or so and its only bc the baby is never in the same spot so I have to find him/her

I don't have a doppler. I just have to wait for my appointments to hear the heartbeat.

Ditto! I can't wait to hear it this afternoon.

I have one from babybeats. It has always taken awhile to find but seems to be even harder to keep lately! I only try about once a week because it frustrates me.

I have a Pocket Fetal Doppler that I bought of ebay. I love it. I listen to the baby every night , with the spotting that I have had it is such a relief to hear the baby.

I have the Angelsounds doppler. It took a while to initially find her, but she seems to like to hide in the same area. It can still take a while to pinpoint the heartbeat, but I don't spend 15 minutes searching my whole belly like I used to. I sit there with my stopwatch and count out her HB -- it's been consistently in the mid 150s. Best $35 I've spent this year!

Mine is also a pocket fetal doppler and I can now find the heartbeat in a minute or less...baby is usually hiding out in the same spot.
