This time around is a MUST! I need to hear my lil sweet peas heartbeat A LOT. Since I can't feel the baby moving yet, I get really worried something may be wrong. It often brings me to tears. So, to remedy this.... I went to fetaldoppler.net and ordered a Doppler to hear our rainbow baby's heartbeat.
The first time I tried it, I couldn't find it. This had me a bit worried but I knew deep within that all was fine. I left it alone for the time being. The next day I pulled it out again. This time I didn't give up until I got to hear the heartbeat.
It was perfect! The Doppler couldn't register the heart rate because it sounded so far away. I'm sure this is due to the fact that I was 8 weeks 4 days pregnant. I tried for a third time and it came in perfectly at around 150-160 beats per minute.
(If you're expecting and would like to know which Doppler I am using... here is the picture)
I do plan on taking my 8 week picture. Although I know I am a bit late on it. I'll be 9 weeks tomorrow. Praise GOD!!!!!
Here's the video of our Rainbow Baby's heartbeat.
