Just wanted to know if anyone else has ever rented a fetal heart monitor...specifically from Babybeat.com? They look pretty interesting and the testimonials are exceptional....? Any advice would be helpful
I bought a BABY SOUND FETAL DOPPLER. I would not recommend this model. It was great at finding the heartbeat, but a few flaws
Two main concerns
1. the headphone jack didn't work right. I had to constantly move the plug around to get a good conection.
2. I had to remove it from my stomach and look at the screen really quick to see the heart rate while it was dropping because it wasn't picking up the rate anymore.
I wish I had spent a little more and went with the Sonoline B on amazon it goes for about $75 you can find it cheaper on ebay.
The SONOLINE has a speaker so no headphones required. You can choose weather it reads actual beats or if it averages beats per minute. I went on amazon and read a few reviews and watched video reviews on this product and I wish I had bought this one.
There are a few other ladies on this board that have heart monitors and hopefully they also will respond to you.
i also purchased one instead of renting it....i have to say it really has kept me calm in between appts and feeling the baby move...i paid $60 for mine on amazon and got a sonoline (i think thats the name)....im very happy with doppler and the money was well worth it
I bought BABY SOUND A FETAL DOPPLER on ebay. I read reviews first and people said spending more on Sound B (Heart rate LCD) isn't worth it. People have said it doesn't work well.
However from what I read it works fine for hearing the heartbeat. I didn't care to pay 20$ more for the LCD screen. I can get the heartbeat on ultrasound, I just want to hear it at home and not just on visits.
I can give you more info on it when it comes in and I try it. The Angelsounds one is also about $35. I went with Sound A based on reviews.
This one was a good one. Theres also alot of related videos you can watch.
I used babybeat and I am happy with it. I purchased one of those amplifer ones from the baby store - but you can't really hear anything until later in pregnancy. This has given me peace of mind and I was happy with it... you just reminded me that I need to send it back.... THanks
