    I'm curious to find out which home fetal Doppler heart rate monitors people are using.

    I don't remember which one I had, but yes I had one, I bought it with my second child and used it with my twins :)

    I had a cheap one I bought on Amazon. I can't remember the name but it was about $30. You can also rent them. It's a pretty easy process from what I understand. I just never used them once I was feeling regular movement.

    UPDATE: While at one of my wife's previous OB visits, I took note of the fetal doplar that they used in the office. It was called a 'Nicolet Vascular Elite 200' and when I first looked them up online, I saw them selling for $700ish. I decided to search Ebay and found one for $150. Bought it and have been very pleased with it's performance. We've been using it almost daily to listen to the babies' heartbeats and it usually only takes a few seconds to find. Even though my wife is just starting to feel them kick, it's nice to have just one more way to 'check in on' the babies.
