To those of you who have one, where did you get your doppler/heartbeat detector?

I went to the docs today and there was a strong heartbeat ...which is great... but when I got home I noticed some pinkish/brownish spotting in my underwear. I know this can happen sometimes and all that.... but I am already overly anxious about something going wrong... and to have this happen scares me to death. I didn't think I would want to get one of those doppler things but now I'm thinking it might help ease my anxiety a little bit to have one on hand.

Where do you get one? I don't need a top of the line one or anything like that, and I would rather not rent one.... just something I can keep that works well enough to let me hear a heartbeat here and there.

I bought mine on ebay...they have a ton of them and different kinds/price ranges...so you can decide which you want. I know what you are saying though. I had a MMC with my first so with this one it has been a great relieve to hear the heartbeat every so often

I bought mine on eBay. Shipped to the house for about $65. I've only used it a couple of times, but it is a relief just knowing it is in the closet.

Ebay - from East Shore Medical, I think. Cost about $60. I use it a couple of times a week - pretty much whenever the confidence of my last ultrasound wears off and I start getting nervous. It takes some practice to find the baby's heartbeat, but once you know what you're listening for, it gets easier.

Sorry you've had some spotting - since it's brownish, it's probably old blood and nothing to worry about. But I understand being nervous! I would be, too! Rest with your feet up and drink lots of water. That should help.
