Quoting katxo[10wks]:" I am so glad I bought a doppler. Listened to my baby again today I LOVE it. I've been reading a lot ... [snip!] ... a lot of stories on bg lately from women losing their babies 10-12 weeks. I feel better that I can monitor the hb on my own"
I know! I belong to a fb group for women who are pregnant after a loss & the stories are HEART WRENCHING! There are times I have to take a few days away from it b/c it heightens my paranoia that something will go wrong again. But, it's such a supportive and informative outlet for all the feelings that come with being pregnant after loss, that I've grown to care about them, so I can't leave!
Hubby & I found the heartbeat together yesterday morning. Wouldn't stay in one place long enough to enjoy it fully, but felt better finally finding it. Later, on webcam w/my mom, I tried again for her (and my sister came home from shopping right then) --- and we all heard it loud & clear! It was a great moment. We all cried
Now, I've promised myself to only do it on Saturdays, the beginning of each new week for me. Can't wait til uterus gets up high enough that I don't have to go hunting for it as long!
