I have a fetal doppler, and have been loving listening to the baby's hb whenever I get the chance. This morning, however, I placed the probe on my abdomen and heard the usual sound I've grown so accutomed to hearing, and then the heartrate dropped suddenly. I was laying on my back and jumped up out of bed with the probe still on my ab. I listened and within 10 seconds the rate rose to the normal level again. Like a lunatic, I took the monitor with me to work and have listened to the hb once again this morning, and all is well. I am going to call the nurse and relay the story to her.

I'm trying not to jump to conclusions and self-diagnose (a real problem of mine) as I usually do. Anyone had similar experiences? I know calling the dr is my best bet, so I'll let you know what I hear.

Another reason to worry.......

Do you think maybe you picked up your own heartbet for a second? That exact same thing happened one time at an appointment when my doc was listening and she said, oh, that's your heart, dont worry.

That's what the nurse said, but she told me to come in this afternoon and he will check just to make sure...she always says I should do whatever is best for my peace of mind. I thought it might be mine as well, but I listened to it while it sped back up, so I don't think it was my own. Anyway, I'm going at 2:15 and will let you all know the outcome.

Good luck. I hope your Dr gives you peace of mind.

The drop in heartrate happeans to me to when I use my doppler. I think, like the others have said, the baby moves and you loose it's heartbeat. I usually just make sure that the heartbeat is there and in a normal range and then put the doppler away because otherwise I would go nuts analyzing the heartbeat too much.

All is well. the dr told me that these things happen with fetal hearts not being that advanced. I'm happy I went. It always makes me feel better. thanks for the good thoughts!
