    Default Doppler

    I really went back and forth about whether I should get a doppler. On one hand, I was scared that I wouldn't be able to find the h/b and just freak myself out. On the other hand, with all of the spotting I have had, I thought that if I could find the h/b, that would be very comforting when I was feeling scared. I got it yesterday, and it was actually a weird combo of both. I think I found the h/b....but I'm not totally sure. I am sure that I found the placenta....but I'm not sure if hearing the placenta means that the baby is okay....lol.....so I would say at this point, it's kind of a mixed bag. I guess I do feel better because I did hear something, but I didn't realize how hard it would be to find and interpret.

    Anyone else getting/have a doppler? Thoughts?

    We actually just ordered one last night.

    I think it's definitely worth it. Once you learn your baby's place in there, finding the heartbeat usually isn't too difficult, with my son - it was easy almost every single time (unless he was facing backwards then I would just hear him swishing around in there lol).

    I got one like Bebe or something ... I paid a lot for it, I admit, but I got the one I felt with the bigger value and I like the digital screen that shows the heartrate.

    And they gave me free gel LOL!
