Found the heartbeat!!

So, because this pregnancy is driving me to become a nutcase, I ordered a doppler the other day. It came today, so I tried to find the heartbeat. I wasn't able to find it, and our 2.5 year old was so interested in what the heck I was doing. He then threw his shoe on my belly, and I just gave up. I just got him interested in something, so I tried again. I found it!!!! For literally 3 seconds. It was 164 -- exactly what it was at our u/s! The baby must have moved, because I wasn't able to find it again. Oh well. I'm so relieved. I already got my money's worth out of the doppler. Biggrin

I ordered this one: http://www.pulseoximeteronline.com/sonoline-b-pink.html

I looked into renting one for a month, but it's anywhere from $25 (for a non-digital one, so it doesn't tell you beats per minute) -- $49. For that price, I figured I'd just buy one and I can always sell it later on.

They were SUPER QUICK to ship, free shipping, it came with brand new batteries, and a small tube of the gel that you need. I am very satisfied!

My dh doesn't know yet...LOL...but I figured it's my Mother's Day gift to myself. Wink And what he doesn't know won't hurt him. Lol
