I am going to purchase one, and it seems like the Sonoline B is a good choice. It is FDA approved and has great reviews. Do any of ya'll have one? I need it to put my mind at ease... Even though Madison is still teeny tiny and she has to be just in the right position for me to feel her, if I go several hours with no kicks, my mind spins out of control... I just wish I could snap my fingers and the next 18-22 weeks would be here!

I have a different brand, but must say that this doppler is by far the best purchase I have made so far. It puts my mind at ease whenever the baby is a little to quiet for my comfort.

I just got one a couple weeks ago. I found it on Craigslist and got it for $40.

I have an anterior placenta, so it's not always been the easiest to find her heartbeat and I don't feel her yet. I've just tried to keep calm and finally had success finding her!

I can't feel her move yet, but I hear her move on the doppler. haha

The peace of mind is awesome.

I have a sonoline b and love it. I work at a medical clinic and myself and the nurses started trying to find the heart beat at 10 weeks and couldn't find it. Being I was at work and had patients, we couldn't spend as long as I wanted searching for it. Found out I had a tipped uterus and an anterior placenta. I was on the fence about ordering one but when we couldnt find the heartbeat, i ordered it off of eBay. the night before it arrived I was just about 12 weeks and we found the heartbeat at work! I thought I wasted my $ but I am sooo happy I kept it. I use it all the time, just to hear him or when I haven't felt him move. Once you learn how to distinguish the beats, you'll be so happy you got it!

I have one and I love it.. I use it a lot less now though since starting to feel him... But totally happy I invested. I got mine on eBay for $60 and it came with 2 tubes of gel.
