active baby!

I know this early they are still just floating freely, but this morning, and for the past 4 days, baby has been on the upper left side my my lower abdomen, now this afternooon its all the way across on my right side. I cant believe how high up it is already also! atleast 3" higher then a week ago!

I am just loving this doppler, I send dh a morning sound clip since he is at work by the time I try it out.

It's amazing how fast everything is growing in there! Congratulations on feeling the babe. I can't wait until we are all feeling them in there. Smile

I am so in love with my doppler too! Makes me feel more connected to the baby at home instead of waiting for my doc appt. I'm glad I got one too because I have yet to hear the baby's HB at the doctors office. I've always gotten an U/S every appt so they don't even use the doppler! If I didn't have one, I think I would be insisting they use the doppler just so I can hear it! Smile Glad you are having fun with it!

yes, its fun, its part of my morning routine now Smile this morning it took a good 15 minutes to find it though, which is crazy, I normally find it right away!

I wouldnt be surprised if the doc still doesnt find it, they dont take the time like we can on our own.

Kristin-I cant feel it yet, just finding it with the doppler Smile

I'm just nervous that I will freak myself out if I can't find it at all.

All right, I freaking ordered one Blum 3 I hope it comes with a lot of gel and not just a little bit.

Mine came with a packet of gel and it was gone pretty quickly. This is the second baby that I'm using the sam Doppler for and a little bit of lotion does the trick too!

Mine came with a little packet too and it was gone that night, but I ordered a big bottle from Amazon. Here is a link. http://www.amazon.com/Aquasonic-Ultrasound-25L-8-5oz-Bottles/dp/B001EBUA0E/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1302039577&sr=8-6

I think I only paid $4.00 for mine so this one is a little bit more. You can also get smaller bottles as well.

mine came with the same tiny packet and I havent even used half yet, only put it on the wand, not your belly, it doesnt take much to work!!

I have heard you can use aloe gel as well, but the real stuff is pretty cheap.

So glad you ordered it Smile you can always resell online (hyenacart.com, spots corner)

dont! it takes time to find it, and I am not able to hold it staright up and down, I have to kinda dig in and hold it on and angle....must be the baby's position (and im fat, lol)

and even once you find it, the next time it could be in a totally different spot, so just be patiant, lay flat, and be in a totally quiet room.

I like to have the monitor part that has the speaker up by my neck because sometimes the hb is so faint when I first find it, then once I know the general spot, I can try and get it louder.

let us know if you have any questions once it comes! did you get the A or B model?

Sounds like you've got a wiggly LO in there :).

On a side note, you know what they say about active babies right? They say that means it's a girl! Boys are supposed to be lazy :p. Hey it was true for me, DS was way calmer than DD. She kicked me nonstop!

Have never heard that about active babies being girls. My first DD I only felt move once in my entire preg. She was sooooooo lazy even at scans she didn't really move. My second moved a lot more. Now with this one I keep getting this feeling like something is tugging me from the inside, very odd been happening at least once a day for a couple of weeks now. Always in a different spot.

I got the B. I think I can steal some lube from work. I work at a family practice clinic and they just used regular surgical lube when we used to have a doctor who did OB. My boss totally wouldn't care if I pumped a bit for myself and took it Biggrin

I've heard that about girls too! That's where that old wives tale comes from about girls having faster HB's. The baby's hb is faster depending on their activity and since they claim girls are more active that is why they have faster hb's. Smile Totally does not make sense though considering boys really do bounce off the walls once they are born so why are they so lazy in the womb! LOL!
