Hey where can I get the gel the doctor use? I have a doppler from when I was pregnant with Adam.

My sis is pregnant and we would love to hear the babys heartbeat at home....but I dont have anymore gel and I dont think the hospital will give it to you..will they?

We got ours on Ebay when we bought the doppler...i dont feel like waiting for a shipment though...are there any local stores that sell it?

Why not call a physicians office and find out where they get theirs or if you are in the good graces of one of the office workers, they may be able to get you a little gel.

yeah...we tried WET and we found our heartbeats and the placentas pulse..but no baby. I assumed it was the gel. Wet isnt the same gel like consistancy though...you think hair gel would work?

We will try again...we arent professionals so we could just be missing the little guy..she is now 9 weeks
