I knew every excellent reason why I shouldn't get one. And ultimately, I didn't care. I wanted one. I broke down. I ordered it. And then today, it came.
My first ten minutes of dopplerhood involved hearing my own heartbeat in way more places than I thought possible. Gave up and told myself I'd try at 12 weeks. That particular resolve lasted about 2 hours, at which point I busted Mr. Doppler out again to have a listen.
I wasn't positive I'd be able to tell the difference between Peanut's heartbeat and mine - but once I heard it, it was ridiculously easy. Peanut's heart beats literally TWICE AS FAST as mine.
For the record, Peanut is clocking in around 180bpm tonight. I think it helps that I ate right before I used it - all that yummy sugary watermelon must have woken poor Peanut up!
