Pregnant after a Loss

Found the hb with my Doppler!!! (Update)

I've been using my Doppler for a few days knowing it was too early to hear anything. But last night (8w5d) I picked it up for about 15 seconds! Then it was gone. It took a while to find. I found it again this morning but only for a few seconds. But that's enough to make me feel so much better. Woohoo! I knew technically I was pregnant but without daily reassurance I convince myself I'm going to have another mmc.

  • That is so reassuring! I wasn't able to pick my little guy up until around 13 weeks. Then from about 15-17 weeks, couldn't find him at all. Idk if it was him moving everywhere or my anterior placenta but it drove me crazy.
  • Holy cow, that's early. Congratulations! He/she must have one heck of a heartbeat!

  • I shouldn't have even said anything. I tried to find it last night and I couldn't. I tried for a while too. So I thought oh well I'll try again when I wake up. I'm sure it's just bc he/she is so small. Then I couldn't find it again this morning. The reasonable part of me knows it's probably just normal bc it's so early. The pgal part of me is freaking the heck out.

  • Ok I'm officially insane. I just tried again and found it. I told myself "ok try one more time and if you find it, you're putting the Doppler away for a week". I'm reassured but now I can see how mentally exhausting this can be. I'm thinking I might give it to my husband to hide. Ladies....step away from the dopplers. Lol just kidding.

    That's why I never used the doppler, I would have a heart attack.  Also the only time I used it, my husband found the heartbeat for me.
    BFP 2/11/15 (EDD 10/13/15). MMC 3/30/15 D&C 4/3/15 "We will always love you"
    DD1 - BFP 7/23/15 (EDD 3/31/16).  "We believe in you rainbow" DOB 4/2/16
    DD2 - BFP 2/9/18 (EDD 10/19/18).  "Grow baby grow!" DOB 10/24/18
    BFP 11/16/20 (EDD 7/31/21).  "Round 3 FIGHT!"

    This is my fear of using one. Bought one for a friend and asked for it back to try it out. Glad she hasn't taken me up on it.

  • I borrowed my sisters Doppler when I was pregnant with my daughter. It was a lifesaver. It kept me from going crazy and calling my dr a million times. I bought my own this time, but I am not going to use it until they start doing it at the dr office. It's too early. Maybe put it up for now, so you don't drive yourself crazy :)
  • I would just note that my doc, at 11 weeks, could not find a HB for me on Friday bc my uterus is tipped so far back. Baby is fine. I think your anatomy is important in a decision on whether or not to purchase. He said I likely wouldn't be able to find a HB until 20 weeks!

  • I was so torn about getting a doppler but last week I was really panicking. I had been crampy and felt like I wasn't feeling the usual little flutters (I'm 18w1d) and I was getting really paranoid. Waiting for my appointment next week seemed impossible. My sweet husband ended up surprising me with a doppler and it provided so much relief. I don't think I'll use it often but probably once in a while until the kicks are stronger/more consistent.

  • It's a lifesaver most of the time. It has really eased my fears going so long between appointments.
