I never even used U/S gel this time, I used baby oil gel and it works just as good! the first time I used aquasonic and it just gets annoying buying it constantly (because I used it constantly haha)

LOL sounds like my hubby, he always has pockets full of gloves when we leave the doctor or hospital, when we went to visit his brother he took one of those little bottles of mouthwash :| any kind of gel will work fine though, at the doctors office we just use "dynalube" it must be cheap cause the tube looks like it was designed in the 70s lol

The Doppler I have can be used with water or gel, I didn't bother using gel I just use warm water on a cloth
