I read there are 2 options now day to hear your baby's heart beat at home (bonding expriance for me) - option 1: Fetal monitor - pros: has FDA approvals and works from as early as week 14. Cons: expensive (vs. the other option) and emitting radio waves , so most doctors recommend not to over use them. option 2: iPhone app that uses the microphone to pick up the sound (like a stethoscope). Pros: cheap (less then 4$) and not emitting any waves (the iPhone has "AIRPLANE MODE" which shuts down all comunication). Cons: not FDA approved , works only for 3rd trimester. Will appriciate your thoughts and comments :-)
