    I Ordered My Baby Beat Tonight!!!

    I ordered it tonight for delivery on Tuesday so that I would have it after my cerclage on Wednesday to help ease my fears.

    I am only 10 weeks PG and last time I waited until I was 12 weeks so I'm still hoping that I can pick up at least one heartbeat.

    I was going to wait until after my u/s on Tuesday but I just took the leap of faith and ordered it!

    I know that Tanja has one. Is anyone else planning on renting one?

    I'll let you know if I'm lucky enough to pick up a heartbeat on Tuesday!

    YOU GO, GIRL!!!

    I received mine at 10 weeks 5 days, but didn't hear a heartbeat until 5 days later. I tried every morning, and that fifth morning (11 weeks, 3 days) I told myself: if I cannot hear anything today, I am going to put it away for 3 days.

    And then, there it was. It also took me all those days to get the hang of using the thing, too, and recognizing all the sounds and that the smallest of repositioning can make a difference in what you hear at all.

    Anyway. Now after what happened I am more spooked ofcourse, and a little nervous now each time, to use it....
    But I hope that goes away again soon. I have loved it, the week and a half prior to the news.

    Have you used one in your other pregnancy? If not, what I found for myself, it did help my peace of mind, alot. I just had to learn to not panic if some days I couldn't find anything, specially in the beginning!
    Sometimes it took me 40 minutes!
    Or another try later in the day even.
    Now, I can find it usually within five.

    So promise me you won't freak if you can't hear something somedays, or not right away

    By the way: I ordered mine on a wednesday late afternoon, and it arrived that next afternoon already! That was amazing!

    Holding your hand and praying for you and the babies. Tuesdy is another day closer. You made it through another day!

    I have a babybeat ( one of the cheaper brands) and I have tried finding the heartbeat already and have been unable too.. But my Dh reminded me I had a really hard time finding our LC's too.. So I plan on taking it to the ob/gyn's with me Thursday and seeing if he can help me out.. Good Luck!
