I see many posts like this in my future.. today's topic is: Confessions of a pregnant 1st time mom.
Last week I ordered a fetal dopler so I could hear little love's heartbeat at home anytime I wanted. It arrived yesterday and I was so excited to test it out so I ran out to my car (I was at work) and was surprised at how easy it was to find the heart beat. I even called my mom to listen in! When I got off work I stopped by my MIL so she too could hear the heartbeat..once again I picked it up very quickly! Then I got home and had to call Dad, Grandma & little sister so they could hear it too.
As it turns out.. I was picking up my OWN heartbeat-- I only figured this out when I was playing around with it and heard the same sound on the OTHER side. Oops :) :) I finally located the baby's heart beat but it didn't stay for long and I couldn't locate it again. I was able to pick it up better this morning after about 5 minutes of trying.
