I am looking for a really good fetal doppler i am not sure what the rules are but if you can't recommend them in this thread can you please private message me. I have done my online research and i can see teh Sonoline B fetal doppler is very popular and not super expensive but i would have to buy that internationally on ebay. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated

My husband bought a 2nd hand one off eBay from a doctors office.
Just remember to use a lubricant or it is hard to locate and hear the heart beat, we just used lotion and it worked fine.
I saw a post of yours the other day and saw your blog, I hope your pregnancy goes well.

OP, can I add my two cents worth? Fetal dopplers can cause just as much anxiety as they do assurance. This is because it can be quite difficult, as an inexperienced lay person, to locate the fetal heart beat, especially before the 20 week mark. I know a few women who hired/bought them, and ended up in tears at their local hospital, convinced of the worst, only to find that all was fine.
I'm not sure how far along you are (can't open your Blog, sorry), but given your sad experience with Michael, would your OB consent to regular scans to ease your mind? I have had 7 losses, at various points in pregnancies, and I know the fear you are probably experiencing. My OB therefore let me have weekly scans, just a few minutes each, until I was able to feel movement. Then we cut it back to fortnightly, as my anxiety started to drop.
I'm wishing you all the very best, OP
