Those who got dopplers where did you get it and how much?

I'm 11 weeks and not sure if that's too soon to potentially hear the heartbeat on our own or if I need to be further along with home dopplers?

    I was able to find it at 9wks and 5days. Some days it's easier then others though.

    My wife and I used the Sonoline B Fetal Doppler and were able to find the heartbeat at around 10 weeks with both of our pregnancies. We got it off of Ebay for around $50 to $60 3 years ago.

    I purchased the Sonoline B fetal Doppler (~$30) and have been able to consistently find the FHR since 11w3d. At <14 weeks you are likely to find the FHR underneath your pubic bone; there are a couple of reasonably good demonstration videos on youtube.

    Mine was $35 on eBay . I got it at 9 weeks but wasn't able to hear HB until 13w,
    I have lots of padding and found out later have an anterior placenta so it makes it more difficult.
    It's very easy to confuse your own heartbeat and placenta HB with baby's. All those 3 sound different.
    Now at 18+ weeks I can feel from the outside where baby is so I can find HB much faster but he doesn't like it and quickly moves away.
