Got the doppler today....opened it and hooked myself right up...and I believe I heard the heartbeat! At first I thought I had it but it was reading too low, so it was actually my heartbeat, but then I moved it and heard the fast whoosh of a fetal heartbeat! It was registering around 144 beats per minute! There is a way to upload the sound file onto your computer, so I am totally going to do that when I get done with all my evening chores (I promised Luke while he worked on call tonight that I would go to the store AND put away all the laundry...).
Such a great sound! :-)
Update: here's the heartbeat-- around 140 beats per minute, still in that ambiguous could be a boy, could be a girl stereotypical heartbeat range
Hi! I'm Ashley E, better known as Mrs. E to my 4th grade students. I am married to a family medicine resident, and we are parents to a beautiful toddler, Noelle. We are excited to welcome our second child into our family in October!
Along with being an elementary teacher, I am also a professional photographer of children and families. What started as a hobby has turned into a busy business that fills most of my weekends throughout the year.
I have a real interest in blogging. I love reading blogs and adding to my own blogs. I enjoy expressing myself through writing, and I love gathering new ideas by reading the words of others.
I hope you enjoy your time here and come back often!
