Doppler Overuse

I know using doppler is safe but Is it safe to use for every other day for about 3 minutes each time? DH is not letting me to check it every other day as he is worried if there might be the side effects that the have not been found. He wants me to check just once a week not more than 2 minutes. I am kind of addicted to it and can't stand without checking it every other day. Please share your thoughts or suggestions. Thanks..

Everything I have ever read has always said that the use of a doppler is safe.

Hey Martha. I asked my doc yesterday and he said that once a day won't hurt. He said there is no proof that the ultrasound waves from the doppler will/won't cause any long term issues. He said as long as you don't leave it on the same spot for and hour you should be good. It's probably the same as people freaking out about microwaves and cell phone waves. You should be just fine!!

My friend used it twice a day throughout her whole pregnancy and her she now has a beautiful baby boy. I use it every night for about 1-2 minutes and I am not worried at all....they're just soundwaves, we get hit with them everyday!

I've used mine everyday since 8w and im now 20 weeks and everything is going great. I use mine for 10 minutes a time sometimes as I like to hear the baby kicking the doppler and all the fluid moving around when the baby does....I think it's a great invention and my midwife said it's fine
