My fetal doppler arrived yesterday, and of course I had to try it out pronto. Many warned me they are difficult to use, especially this early, as I’m only 9w3d today. I watched a few YouTube videos first, but sadly to say, I wasn’t able to pick up anything that sounded like a heartbeat. Well, I take that back, I heard some ‘swishing’ noises, but the YouTube videos I watched said that noise is most likely the bloodflow to the placenta and not the baby’s heartbeat. So, I’ll try again in a few days!
If anyone has any advice for using fetal dopplers, I’m all ears!
