I Heart My Doppler
Love, love, love my Doppler.
I heard the babies' heartbeats for the first time tonight! The most beautiful sound to a worrying expectant mom like me. We found a nice 170's heartbeat right away! It is hard to tell if we are hearing more than one or if we are picking up the one closest to the probe. The directions said even doctors don't do multiple heartbeats by Doppler often because it is hard to tell who is who! Later I called my mother-in-law in Texas and my mom to hear it too, and they loved it.
My hubby was so happy to hear them too, and may have muttered something like, "Now we won't need to get an ultrasound every five days..." It is so comforting to know I can check in on them whenever I feel anxious, and know that we can hear someone doing well inside.
I am taking a belly picture and posting later, I promise. It is shocking how quickly it has popped out! "When you are Expectting Twins, Triplets..." says that the triplet uterus is 10-12 weeks ahead. That is TRUE for me! I am fully in maternity clothes now, at 10 weeks! That is definitely 10 weeks sooner than it was with A. Seriously, folks, I am going to be a whale in a few months. Watch out!
