Swoosh, swoosh, swoosh.

  a.k.a my friend Natashia lent us her friend’s doppler last night until mine arrives. That is the true definition of best friend. I hope if I found myself in her predicament I would still be a good enough friend to be happy for my friends pregnancy, and be able to lend her things that were meant for my own baby. Tasha is truly a good person.

This means the world to us, this morning we lie in bed together, Dave and I, and we listen first to my heartbeat, then the swooshing sound of the placenta, then the healthy little racehorse baby heartbeat. So cool, the placenta sounds like hurricane wind storm and then the baby’s heart is all thumpity thump through it. So fast and adorable ๐Ÿ™‚ so easy to dinstinguish from my own, which is much slower.

This is the doppler in question, so for those who questioned if it was any good or not, it really is, not like the cheap wal-mart or target dopplers, this one actually works like a medical grade one. Only there is no speaker, you do have to listen with headphones. Good things is that there are two headphone jacks so you and your partner can have a listen together.

โ€œLife is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.โ€ โ€” Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. Thats awesome. I’m so happy you can listen to your babys heart beat whenever you want! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Oh I am so glad you were able to get one! The circumstances may be horrible, but I’m glad someone who knew exactly how comforting a doppler can be was able to bring one to you.

  3. It’s just the best sound, isn’t it?

    • Yes ๐Ÿ™‚ It really is.
      I am suprised how low the heartbeat is still, I thought the baby was higher then that, I find the placenta and heartbeat 1/2″ from my pubic bone off to the left.

  4. yes she is a great friend for doing that. im so glad you could hear bb’s hb
