We recently purchased a Contec pocket fetal doppler Sonoline B off ebay for $65.  It's brand new, came in about a week, and we have been really happy with it so far!

Good luck finding a good one!

I reccomend getting a good fetal Stethoscope.  I am getting a Leff(the sound is very clear with a Leff).  Dopplers have risks that I personally am unwilling to take.

How early can you hear it with a stethoscope? I'm so excited to be able to do this myself ROTFLMAO.gif

You can rent a doppler for however long you want form here

I haven't used them, but I'm thinking about renting a doppler and this is the best site I've found so far.  The stethoscope I have right now isn't picking up babies heart beat (I'm 28 weeks)
