    Hi Pgal ladies,  hope everyone is enjoying the weekend. Question, how many of you have a at home Doppler? If so, what's a good brand, and when did you start using it? I'm thinking about getting one to ease my mind when the anxiety gets high

    @alemarie1 I bought a Sonoline B and it just arrived on Friday. I tried using it, but couldn't find the HB yet. I'm 10w3d today.

    @alemarie1 - I bought the Sonoline B during my last pregnancy. I used a doppler that I previously rented, and ended up purchasing from BabyBeat during my other four pregnancies. I was usually able to find the heart beat between 8.5-9 weeks with that doppler. I have a retroverted uterus according to the u/s tech during my last visit that makes it harder to detect a heart beat until 12+ weeks. So I'll try around that point.

    @alemarie1 I've been pondering the same thing! DH thinks its a bad idea because he thinks I'll freak out if I can't find a heartbeat. He may be right, so I've held off on purchasing. However, I think about it constantly! 10w tomorrow and I'm wondering at what point I'd be safe to start looking.

    I bought mine around that point last pregnancy. I would give myself a set amount of time to try to find it and then be done with it. It kept me from obsessing! I started trying to find a HB after my OB appt when they successfully found the HB with their doppler.

    Hi ladies.  I am going to join you all.  We had 2 mc's before ds1 and three between ds1 & ds2. This pregnancy was not a planned one. I have had a hard time focusing on anything else this summer other than is it ok.... it's not ok... etc... trying to get beyond that and just be happy in  the now. 

    Any advice on how you remain positive and focus on other things?

    @neener*neener* I totally understand having hard time concentrating. My job keeps me pretty busy most days so that has helped, but on slow days I'm an anxious mess. I wish I had a secret, but mostly the days crawl by for me. I feel your pain!

    @starla f2f crossed all is well at the doctors on Thursday... I have an appointment the samd day too and it's causing me anxiety having to wait. 

    Any of pgal mommas doing  nipt testing? I had a bad experience with my last pregnancy, but pretty sure I'm going to opt to try again to put my nervous mind at rest.

    @alemarie1 I am having NIPT testing done next week--results the following week. Good luck at your appointment Thursday! 
  • Options
    @alemarie1 Yes we are, getting drawn on Friday for it. We did it with DS as well. Since we never were able to test for genetic issues on any of our losses, my doc just wants the screen just in case I guess. I'm not going to worry about it too much, worst case something comes up as a possibility and we are able to do some research and be prepared in case it's actually an issue. Best case nothing comes up and we get to know the sex early!

    @alemarie1 - I visit with the perinatology group's genetic counselor for cfDNA screening tomorrow. I did this same right around this time with dd3, and did the first trimester screening with ds2.

    Hi ladies, how did your appointments go today? I got to see little baby today and took the matern21 test, now to keep my mind busy while I wait for results. NT scan will be within the next 2 weeks.

    Anxious to get through these 2 tests because this same time last year I got bad news,  my due date is within 2 days of angel babies due date (1year later) I'm just glad I switched doctors so everything can feel somewhat different. I also feel so much better with my doctors.

    My NIPT was done yesterday, and the lab received it today and will start processing it soon. The representative said I should receive the results in a week.

    I had my first appointment yesterday. Baby looked perfect. I'm so grateful that my midwife gets it- she tried with the doppler unsuccessfully and immediately opted for an US for peace of mind! Also, I should be able to have the VBAC that I'm hoping for! Hope everyone's appointments go well!
