    I saw this machine that you can use to listen to your baby's heartbeat and hiccups, and even record the sounds and email it. Robinsons and Mothercare are selling it. I'm not sure how it works or whether it even works, but you might like to check it out. Costs about $100+.

    I saw one at Baby Hyperstore at Kaki Bukit but didn't check the price. You might want to call them to ask.

    hmm not sure lei... but like wat 'ilovemilk' mummy mentioned, think around $100+. my hubby said he's scared of me saying ' i dun feel anything liao' then gotta always request for dr to scan for me , muz pay up to $100 each time go for scanning so he may as well buy a doppler for me hahaa wheeee:wong29:

    during ur gynae check up, u shld be doing ultrasound scan right? shld be able to see your baby's heart pumping (looks like blinking frm the screen)... then dun need to spend to do a doppler thing...

    unless u wana check at home everyday la... but I read somewhere that doppler bought off shelf may not be very effective... may not be sensitive enuf to hear baby's heartbeat, scared pregnant mothers get paranoid...

    so anyway... up to u also la... the doppler thingy sounds fun anyway... :)

    Hi kittymeowmeow! I bought it at S$138, considered pretty cheap coz i saw it at really high prices elsewhere! But JUST IN CASE, u dont hear any heartbeat yet, pls do not be too disturbed by it. coz i tried it the moment i bought it and i heard baby's heartbeat twice at 10 weeks, quite easy to detect too. However just last week, i tried again thrice and couldnt hear a thing, totally freaked out, went for a scan but saw baby kicking and waving at me!!:Dancing_wub:

    I read online, though dopplers are safe, but try to restrict yourself to use it only bout twice per week. Dont get too carried away ya!! hahaa good luck to u! Do update us!!:tlaugh:

    Wats an Oscar scan? Btw, tat doppler can it record the heartbeat on a disk or something?

    Oh I think u can actually connect the doppler to your laptop and u can record the sound from it. But usually I will take the heartbeat for 6secs n multiply it by ten=). Oscar is the down syndrome test for baby! It's optional but it helps ease my extra worries!

    Hmm I used a stopwatch and count baby heartbeat for only 6secs , then I multiply it by 10 to get the rate per min. But muz focus la hehe.. Coz heartbeat quite fast so the moment u start the stopwatch, u gotta start counting hahaa mine is always around 160-180 =)
