If you are a regular Hip little one reader you may have read before that I am one of the many mothers who has lost an unborn baby. I don’t usually share my personal story but I know there are so many mums out there who have gone through this too and it is something that will always stay with me and has defined me as a person and a mother. After losing our first baby in a missed miscarriage I was terrified of it happening again when I was carrying the twins. The doctors ordered plenty of checkups just so I could hear/see the babies, but there were still many times that I wish I could quickly hear that reassuring sound of a beating heart and I would have loved to have my very own doppler to use at home.

At Parents Like Us they know a lot of mums feel like this, which is why they stock a great selection of fetal dopplers so you can listen to your baby’s heart whenever you want in the comfort of your own home. With a Sonotech Fetal Doppler you can share those wonderful moment with your husband, children or other family and friends who would love to hear the heartbeat of your unborn baby from as early as 10-12 weeks.

There are different doppler models available in store ranging from the basic Sonotech Lite Fetal Doppler ($69) to the Sonotech Xpress Fetal Doppler ($89.90) and finishing with the top-of-the-line Sonotech Pro Fetal Doppler ($149.90). This last model has loads of amazing features like a TFT colour LCD with diagnostic graph display, out of range fetal heart rate alarm indicator, crystal clear sound with noise isolation (very important) and much more.

Your new Sonotech doppler conveniently connects to two sets of headphones and computer for listening to and recording of those wonderful, amazing moments of hearing your unborn baby’s heartbeat, movements and hiccups. All Sonotech dopplers ship free of charge with tracking and come complete with 250ml ultrasound gel and 12 months warranty directly through Parents Like Us.

If you were thinking of getting yourself a doppler you are in luck, right now you can enjoy 20% off storewide at Parents Like Us. Simply enter the code ‘MUM20’ at checkout, hurry though as offer ends May 13, 2012.

  1. I loved knowing that a life is growing inside me, feeling every movement, watching my belly grow, connecting with this little person who I would meet in 9 months.

  5. Im currently TTC for number 4! I would love to able to share the joy of hearing bub’s heartbeat with family.

    The best thing about being pregnant for me is feeling thattiny flutter of movement for the first time.

  7. The WHOLE experience! I had such a wonderful pregnancy I enjoyed every minute, including labour 🙂

  9. My favorite part was feeling them moving and wriggling around even if it caused discomfort you knew that everything was ok!

  10. I am 18 weeks pregnant with our fourth child, we had a big scare recently when I had a huge bleed, thankfully our baby was happy bouncing away! I am now paranoid and would love to win this to ease my worries.

    I love watching my belly grow, feeling my baby move inside me and watching my children talking to my bump. Nothing is as amazing as pregnancy and birth.

  11. It was such an amazing experience! Not only knowing that there is such a beautiful little human growing inside me but also the fact that my body was creating her. I think because pregnancy is such a normal fact of life we forget just how complex and amazing our bodies actually are. My favourite part like many others was feeling her every move and off course her hiccups!! Then seeing her do the same thing after birth was priceless!

  12. The thing i love most about being pregnant is the bond i share with my unborn baby, and the little games we play ♥ He kicks i poke back, he kicks i poke back 🙂

  13. Why I like being pregnant? The reason why I like being pregnant is the whole experience- bringing a newborn into life, from being a little spot then growing into a newborn baby, watching my baby on the ultrasound scans moving around and seeing all the parts of the body within the baby like the heart kidneys etc…. Seeing this brings happiness knowing ur bringing a wonderful thing into life. Also the feeling u feel when u feel ur bubs kicking or when ur baby has the hiccups lol.., this gives a mothers a bond to share with their unborn child, just waiting for those 40weeks to be over so ur little miracle baby comes Ito the world so u can hold them in ur arms, hear them cry, see them smile. I cannot wait for my bubs to come to this world, I am ATM 26weeks pregnant and I cannot wait for my lil bub to be in my arms, coz creating a little miracle and bringing them into this world is the best thing/ experience and I would do it all again 🙂

  14. the thing i love is being able to feel your baby kick and know that you have created the best gift in the world, a baby. i could lay there for hours watching my baby move and kick, its amazing

  25. Absolutely nothing. I’m swollen, sick, nauseous all the time, and chunky…so I guess I like the fact that it won’t last forever!

  26. My ridiculously over the top sex drive!!! For once in our lives my husband can not keep up with me, he’s the one saying no, feigning headaches and trying to sneak into bed when he thinks I’m already asleep!!

  27. I love knowing that my body is being used for an unselfish reason and for what it was designed for. I love knowing that there is a strength from within that no muscle bound man could ever do. I love seeing how far my body will change to complete the natural means of childbirth. I love craving foods that I normally would never touch. I love the non verbal communication that occurs. The ache in the stomach when she/he is hungry. The sudden kick, the shift in weight. I love that everyone in the room is concentrating on the speaker infront of the room while my baby does somersaults in my belly.

  28. I love knowing that for 9 months I have a unique bond with the child growing inside me. People may feel it kick from the outside of my tummy but there is no other feeling on Earth that compares to the feel of a baby moving and kicking inside you.

  29. I’ve liked you on Facebook.

  49. I adore basic toys like the rubber band powered boat by seedling on Bright Buttons Toys.

  50. I liked that I stopped being worried about how my clothes looked. As long as they covered my bump and boobs, that was all that mattered…. now, not being pregnant, I have to worry about my clothes making my tummy, waist, boobs, hips, bum, legs and upper arms look good. 😕

  60. After two years on IVF, we are now officially in the clear zone of 16 weeks which is very exciting for us!

    As we required a significant amount of intervention I am considering purchasing a fetal doppler just for peace of mind as this is truely our little miracle child!

    I also work for an early intervention service as a project manager and so see , on a daily basis, the effect that in utero issues has if the baby does survive.

    I am probably feeling a little anxious because of those two factors, I think that having a fetal doppler would reduce this anxiety somewhat!


  61. So to answer the question … after two whole years of trying to get pregnant using IVF every single twinge, butterfly, weird symptom is an absolute blessing. Sounds VERY strange but I am happy for the morning sickness, happy for the cravings, happy for the sore and tender chest, even happy for the mood swings … I do think that having fertility issues does make you appreciate the fact that you are now at a point of growing your own child inside you,, which is simply AMAZING! I am enjoying EVERY minute of it!
