I actually made DH take it to work today so i couldnt use it...lol
I have been using it every day for the past week and I literally check all the time. I have become addicted and if I can't find the hearbeat, i literally spend a lot of time looking. I found it after attempt number two today and I know that if it is here, I will freak out at some point and try again, so it is officially outta here for the day....ahhh...it's somewhat of a release. its amazing how the mind can literally turn any good thing into a bad thing after miscarriage. I am so thrilled to have a healthy heartbeat and to be pregnant after 9 weeks. BUT NOW, I worry about everything...what if the heartbeat stops> what if it is too slow/ what if what if what if. AHH I just need to relax

This is exactly why I never got one. I would become obsessed, too. I don't need anything to fuel my OCD tendencies.

Mine is due to arrive tomorrow and I can't wait! Hoping it's not too addictive.

Oh It so is...nothing like that reassuring little sound that makes everything in the world that much better.

Yeah, that's why I've never gotten one either. I'd need to hear the heartbeat ALL of the time, and not finding it would just make me freak out. So...I just have to make myself trust that everything was okay before, and I have no reason to believe it's not okay now.

Well, dummy me, fell in the Wal-Mart parking lot on Tuesday at lunch. I caught myself and I was totally fine....just a little embarrassed. On Wednesday morning, I looked for a heartbeat before work and couldn't find one. I almost made myself late so I gave up and came to work. I freaked out all day and got home and checked again and there it was! Beautiful and Strong. These things will drive you mad. BE CAREFUL!!!!
