When I was just over six weeks pregnant I was sent the Unborn Fetal Heart Monitor to review and was recommended to wait until twelve weeks to use it. I was impatient and opened the box at ten and a half weeks and downloaded the free Unbornheart application onto my smartphone, plugged in the headphones and monitor and I was away! I had watched a video on YouTube showing me how to accurately pick up baby’s heartbeat and not my own and after a few minutes managed to find it. I was so relieved when I found it and using the doppler every few days made the next week and a half wait until my scan a bit more bearable. After losing a baby at 6 weeks, having a missed miscarriage and finding out at my twelve week scan having the monitor gave me the extra reassurance that I needed. Obviously in my last pregnancy I managed to get to twelve weeks but our baby had a rare chromosome problem so I was never completely relaxed this time even after hearing the heartbeat.
I found the heart monitor even more useful when we went to Turkey when I was fourteen weeks pregnant I used it once a week whilst we were there. Having such a small monitor and using it through my phone made it really easy and convenient to travel with.
