Has anybody here rented a doppler for home use? What company did you use and were you satisfied?

This early part of pregnancy is driving me nuts. Either I feel so crappy that I start to think something is wrong, or I feel so good I start to think something is wrong. I know it's all in my head, but still... I've been thinking about what women did for so long before routine prenatal care was the norm, how did they get through the early months where baby can't yet be felt and there's really no way to know things are progressing well.

Anyway, I thought I'd ask for opinions regarding the doppler b/c hearing a hb would sure put my mind at ease. Thanks!

That's a good suggestion... I haven't considered buying one b/c I assumed renting would be cheaper. But maybe not!

I bought a sonoline b 3mhz per suggestions in my ddc, and it works pretty good. It was 56 on ebay...much cheaper than renting, if you want it more than a couple months.
