doppler delight :)

October 25, 2010

after a day of some worry and a less-than-understanding response from my ob’s office (another story, another day) last week, hubby suggested we get a doppler. ok! i did a ton of research, made lots of calls, even bought a heartbeat listener at a local used kids store (but found out it works only in the 3rd trimester) and finally rented one through bellybeats. com.

who knew such a thing existed – doppler rentals?! hee hee

and can i say that having it has been such a GIFT. it arrived last week; maddie and i excitedly listened to baby and then that night took the doppler to my mom’s and she was able to hear baby. very WOW for her.  and my dear girlfriend, who is pregnant, came over that afternoon and heard her baby.  ((hubby joked that i could host a doppler party!! ))

i’ve “limited” myself and don’t want to overuse this, for sure. but it is indescribably reassuring and incredible, to hear baby when i am “needing” to … on days when i am dealing with some worry or uneasiness. and it solidifies that this is REAL; i am still in that space of not feeling baby, only showing a bit, so it can still feel very surreal.

there is no sweeter sound than the swoosh, swoosh, swoosh of the miracle baby growing within me!

    I’m so bummed to hear about the response from the doctor’s office! I DO want to hear that story, another day.

    SO glad you’re enjoying the doppler! Maybe your positive experience will be helpful in convincing Justin next time around!
