So this will be the longest that I've gone without an ultrasound or at least a heartbeat doppler reading at my OB's office. The last one we had was last Tuesday (3/9) and we don't go again until April 5. That's forever from now. So, the big question is, do I get a home doppler heartbeat monitor? While the answer may be an obvious yes, I keep reminding myself that even the doctor has had a tough time finding the HB with their machine and if I can't find it at home, I will flip out and assume the baby is gone. (I'm so extreme, I know) Russ says no way. But the next 3 weeks will be sooo very long without some acknowledgement that he/she is there. Good thing is that I THINK (maybe) that I'm starting to feel some flutters and that should only increase so there are other things to let me know that all is well. I'm just not sure what to do and if I do decide to get one, what do I get?? There are some great ones (at least they seem great) that you can rent for like $40 and then send back to the company. I feel like these ones are better and more expensive (which is why you rent them). Or we can buy one, but I worry that they won't be as reliable.
Help please =)
