Fetal Doppler

So we got our fetal doppler in the mail yesterday! I rented it from here:

So, I totally knew this would happen. We couldn't find the heartbeat! I realize that being 10 and half weeks along, it's not easy to hear the heartbeat yet. I did find my own, though! It was a loud woosh woosh sound. There was one second where both Adam and I looked at each other and thought we heard the baby's beat. It sounded like quick hoof beats. But as soon as it was there, it was gone!

I got my box of organic produce delivered today. We get it from these guys:
Unfortunately, nothing in the box appeals to me. Lettuce? Nope. Pears? Yuck. Broccoli? Ewww. So unlike me!

We have absolutely no plans for the weekend, and I am totally fine with that. Just this week the fatigue seems to have hit me. My other symptom of nausea has gone away, but in its place has come tiredness and daily headaches. Blaaah


  1. Wow! Praise the Lord that the blood clot is all gone. to God be all the glory! Ronnie and I can't wait to see you and Adam again. We so want to see you as you go through the pregnancy... so excited for the two of you. Take care sweetheart!

  2. That fetal doppler sounds amazing. Now you'll get to see if that little one has rhythm!

  3. The Doppler can be used for several things. If the pregnancy is predicted to be risky or if there has been a miscarriage or failed pregnancy in the past, then listening to the baby's heartbeat can provide the much needed assurance to the mother that her baby is safe. It allows the mother to remain fetal doppler
