Pregnant Dani Dyer urges fans not to use at-home baby ultrasound devices after it left feeling anxious when she couldn’t hear a heartbeat

Dani Dyer has encouraged fans not to use at-home baby ultrasound devices after being left anxious when she couldn’t hear her a heartbeat. 

The Love Island star, 24, who is 15 weeks pregnant, had purchased the hand-held fetal doppler but said it sent her into a panic when she couldn’t hear anything.

Dani, who reassured fans her baby was fine after booking in an ultrasound scan with her midwife, spoke of her experience with the device on Instagram on Wednesday.

She said: ‘Nothing against it, some people are really lucky and find a heartbeat in six weeks.

‘I tried this at home. It made me ill. If you’re a little bit of a worrier, like me, I just really don’t recommend them because if you cant find the heartbeat, you’re stressing about it. I know I was.

‘Please, save your money and don’t get one of them. It just really stressed me out.’

Midwives advice against using a fetal doppler in the early stages of pregnancy because it is so difficult to listen to the baby’s heartbeat before 14-16 weeks, which can lead to unnecessary panic and anxiety.

It comes after Dani detailed her pregnancy woes in a candid post uploaded to Instagram last week.

The celeb offspring showcased her baby bump in a pink bikini as she explained that while she’s started to ’embrace’ the changes in her body, she has suffered from ‘nausea and horrendous migraines’.

She wrote: ‘I’ve really started noticing the changes in my body and I’m definitely embracing it.

‘Apparently at this stage I’m supposed to feel ‘on top of the world’ which I really hope for as the first few months have been really hard.

‘I’ve had loads of messages from people so thought I’d share my experience so far. And honestly your responses and little tips have been amazing I really feel like it is like a little community on here and I love it lol.’  

Dani also shared she’d like to call her baby Ariana if she has a girl, but admitted her boyfriend Sammy ‘is not having it’. 

Dani made her surprise pregnancy announcement on Instagram in late July, just three months after she rekindled her relationship with Sammy.
