Heard the HB! (some Doppler tips)
 
Got my Doppler yesterday! I was so excited and tried it right away, then was crushed when after about 15 minutes I couldn't find anything but my own HB. I stopped for a bit, then gave it one last try before bed. Victory! A strong FHB of about 160, loud and clear!

There were a few things I did different that I think helped so I wanted to share in case anyone else was having trouble.

1. I moved from the bed to the floor. Being on a firm flat surface instead of my squishy bed let me stretch out flat and flattened my belly a bit for easier access. I also pointed my toes and tried to stretch out nice and long with my legs.

2. LOTS OF GEL.

3. I started about halfway between belly button and pubic bone in the center and did tight slow concentric circles outward. Baby was further left than I expected, so be sure to check farther out than you expect baby to be.

Hope that helps anyone having trouble!

good tips!


My advice is to lay back and suck in your belly as much as you can and make DH search. That's what I do. hahaha I get too stressed when I am trying and my wiggling makes it harder to find.

At first when I kept trying I was putting the doppler to "high up" (2 inches below my belly button) but little did I know my bean is down near my c/s scar LOL! Now When I want to hear the baby I just put it on my c/s scar and hear it immediatly!
