I want to thank my good friend Tasha for providing me with peace of mind.
Before I was pregnant I didn't realize how much I would worry. Seriously, I worry about the baby a lot. Sometimes there are days when I don't feel it moving so I worry if it's okay or even if it's still alive.
At my last doctor's appointment Dr. West said I could come in and listen to the baby's heart beat anytime I wanted... without an appointment! (He's super cool)
One day at work I had planned on going to the gym to get some exercise during lunch but then I started freaking myself out and decided to drive downtown to the hospital and listen to the heartbeat. It's not that inconvenient but it takes a little more than a lunch hour so I can't do it all the time -- which, knowing me, I would want to do.
I was voicing my concern to Tasha (who is also pregnant, yay!) and she said she had rented and been using a fetal doppler to listen to her baby's heartbeat.
She is a little further along that I am and can feel the baby more so she offered to let me use the doppler because she was going to send it back.
Of course I took her up on that! I can now listen to the baby anytime I want. It has brought a lot of peace to this mama-to-be.
Thanks again Tash! And Belly Beats for the great product.
