Omg, I am so happy right now I'm crying. After days of not being able to find my baby's heartbeat on the doppler I just did! I am 9 weeks 3 days so I knew it was early but you can't help but be disappointed and a little worried when every time you try you can't find it.
I read on a board this morning (either this one or another I'm not for sure) that making sure you have a full bladder and slipping a pillow under your hips helps, as it helps slide the uterus slightly up and out from behind your pelvic bone and it worked! I had to jump on and share in case there is anyone out there like me having trouble finding it.
I have read that you shouldn't use the doppler more than once a day and only for a few minutes, so I've only been trying once a day, but has anyone talked to their doctor about doppler use and what is safe? I have my appt on the 1st and will ask then but I know DH and kids will want to hear it later but I want to be careful about over use.
Ok, just saw original post where I saw advice. It was this board and it was from GiftsfromGod. Thank you so much!
Congrats!! Very exciting! I want a doppler so bad! I am so close to just ordering one! I wish I would have told DH I wanted one. He spent too much on Valentine's Day and he could have just bought me one of those and have had lots of money leftover!!
