Ever since I became pregnant it’s been hard to tell if the baby is ok or not. I decided to get a fetal doppler from a site called ClinicalGuard. I got the Sonoline B Handheld Pocket Fetal Doppler because it got better reviews online. I heard that I shouldn’t get the Jumper AngelSounds brand because it’s not as good as Sonoline. I myself have only tried one brand and I’m pretty happy with it. The only thing is that I have to put the volume all the way up to hear the baby well. It’s at a pretty good volume on high. I recorded the audio from my doppler and you guys can hear it here.
Just as a precaution though, don’t worry if you don’t hear the baby at first. Babies like to move around and later on you figure out where your baby is laying. Mine was on the left at first and then moved on to the right side. Now the baby is just moving around everywhere. I usually have more luck trying on the lower part of my abdomen first then moving left or right depending on where I first started. Baby likes to travel. It also depends on what you’ve eaten that day. Baby is more active when you eat sugary things. I usually try to check everyday. It’s comforting to hear the baby. Also, if you haven’t been doing so already, try to keep track of when baby is moving. You can also write this down on a journal. This is to make sure that baby is ok. If movements tend to be less or stop, you should call the doctor. Here is more information on baby movements: Baby’s Movements.
