So thankful I work at a place with a doppler in the secret closet!

I just heard the heartbeat (LOL, lying on the bathroom floor, but I didn't care). I calculated it to be about 164. Yay! It was reassuring, since I've been worried because I was feeling better. I found it right away, low, right above the pubic bone on the right side. YAY!!!!

Oh, my co-worker friend (she's a nurse) snuck it for me. She told me about it while I was pregnant with Andrew, so now it's in the back of my mind. I knew that once I made 10 weeks, I'd be able to hear it.

not sure what else the doplers are used for, but confused as to why your workplace has one? awesome though! if that gives you peace of mind, bring a blanket to lay down on and listen every day!

I'm not sure either; it's not like our residents are going to get pregnant?

I can only think that maybe they need it to listen closer to the chest or something like that, if a stethoscope is not picking it up enough. *shrug* Who knows...

that was my guess. :-)

check out my blog when you get a chance. It took some time, but I figured out how to post my photo's from shu-fly to blogger.
