anyone bought any doppler before to be able to check on baby at home between appts? My appts are 3-4 weeks apart and it drives me crazy because i have had a mc before and always wondering is baby ok or not.

also is it true cant use doppler too much as it has radiation?

Hi dear,

I purchase a doppler online from Lazada & it has been a great way to hear my baby's heartbeat and movements. There is no radiation projected when using a doppler. They uses sound waves to detect. Just like Bladder scanner.

It can be risky to use if you are not using it properly. Avoid hard pressure on your abdomen during your 1st trimester. The heartbeat gets clearer after 12 weeks..

I think that radiations is all around us, from wireless router at home, using handphones, microwaves etcs, we are still exposed but not to the extend of causing issue. Hope this helps!
