I won a fetal doppler on ebay this morning...I think i'm going to try it at 10 weeks, if not then probably 12 weeks...I hope that it helps ease my mind during this pregnancy...I was thinking the other day that I don't remember hearing Ella's heartbeat for the last time...I know it was in the hospital after my surgery in the middle of the night, but I was on pain medication and I was half asleep...I do know that it was quiet (Not sure if it was from the pain meds or the crappy doppler they were using), but I never got to hear her heartbeat loud and clear one last time


I just hope I don't become obsessive with it.

I don't know, I'd lean more towards waiting until 12 weeks for the first try. But I didn't ever get a dopplar because I was so scared of NOT getting a heartbeat when I was at home alone.

I'm sorry you don't remember Ella's heartbeat sound. I never got to hear Cora's all that well either since my dr's listened just really quickly because it was digital and only took about 3 to 4 beats to determine the heartrate.

We got a Doppler when we were pregnant with Ethan, and surprisingly I haven't freaked myself out with it yet this pregnancy.

I had one but I made my mom hide it from me because one time I couldn't find Jacob's heart beat and even though he was movign around like crazy I convinced myself he was dying and about had a panic attack. . .But hopefully not all women are as neurotic as I am!

I am still not sure if I will get one or not. I know before I got pregnant, and dh and I were discussing it we were pretty certain we'll get one. Now I'm not sure since I think I'll be even more worried.

Well I just paid for mine, hopefully i'll get it soon...I know it's way too early to even try to listen, but I will try at 10 weeks (the person I bought it from said they could hear it at 10 weeks)....I'm also seeing my doctor at 10 weeks, so i'm going to ask him to find it too, and i'll be having an ultrasound so even if it's too early at least i'll have the peace of mind from an ultrasound.
