Ok, so I found a tape measure today whilst rummaging around looking for a 9v battery. My bump measures an impressive 94cm around – I’ll aim to do this once a week or fortnight and see just how enormous I become in the coming months.
Going back to the 9v battery – I never did find it – it was for our baby heartbeat monitor thingy which my sister bought us last time around. It’s not really for use before 21 wks and to be honest it wasn’t all that clear even then. So the call of Ebay came upon me like a flash and before I knew it, I’d found myself a doppler monitor (more like the ones used by midwives). Not content to wait and bid for a high tech 2nd hand one, I felt the need to get one asap. And with that, I ordered us an Angelsounds doppler for a bargain £19.99 +p&p. Hopefully should be with us in a day or two. The reviews look great and I shouldn’t have too much trouble picking up wrigglers hb at this stage. I’m hoping it will give us some reassurance in between scans, although I’m aware that they shouldn’t be used too often as there are concerns with overheating the baby. Still exciting though 🙂
