My baby's got the beat

Let me just begin by telling you that this crazy "normal" infertile decided to spend the $19 per month to get the fetal doppler from baby beat. I haven't been too nutso with it since I got it, but it completely comforts me to hear the lovely sound every once in a while. I stopped puking, so then I started freaking out that I lost it, etc. Duh, I know.

My next big appointment is April 14 for the anatomy scan ultrasound. I will be 19 weeks by then (yikes!!!). We do not want to know the sex, so hopefully there will be no revealing pictures or idiot techs that accidentally tell us.

I told a few more people this weekend at a bridal party/bachelorette-ish gathering Friday night. I didn't say anything until the end, and I am surprised that no one asked since I was on the water train all night long. These gals were happy for us and for me, and you know what, I am beginning to allow myself to be happier about this. I am still silently frightened this will all go away, and I hope that feeling fades away soon.

I totally understand about the Doppler. I use one at work all the time too. It's so reassuring!

I'm so glad to hear you're feeling better and a little happier. I'm sure you still have some anxiety, but I'm really hoping it subsides soon!

Its SO hard (harder then I thought) to let go of IF for a while and believe that this can actually happen for us. I am happy to hear your telling people and are starting to feel happy as well!

Hooray for being able to hear the heartbeat at home on the doppler for some reassurance!!

Yay for team yellow :)

I can't believe you're a green teamer too!! You guys are killing me. :)

The sting of IF does fade away. At least it did for me. You have been through so much in such a short amount of time. I loved the Baby Beat too and think it is the best money I spent during pregnancy. I'm glad it is a comfort to you!

So glad your not sick anymore! I almost broke down and got a doppler too, but DH wouldn't let me :( I'm glad you are having fun with it! Enjoy every moment with your pregnancy, you deserve it!

Sharing is fun and terrifying. You need your gals around you to step you through the worry. I am glad you told them

Ap 14 is a million years away, huh?
