One other reason I am considering purchasing one is that they are way cheaper then I thought they would be on Ebay! $95 including shipping. It would cost nearly that much to rent one for only 3 months... but instead I would be able to use it throughout the pregnancy to hear the beautiful beating heart of my little miracle!
I am however hesitant to purchase one right at this moment. With the SCH and all that has happened in the last three weeks we do not know what we will find in the ultrasound on Thursday!
We are praying that we see a healthy happy baby growing great with a great heartbeat. The doctor though told us this would be a viability ultrasound. I hate that. I would have much rather heard the doctor say something positive. Any thing somewhat positive would have done nicely. Instead I got... with your history risk of a miscarriage is never going to be totally gone.
Please.... don't you think I know my history well enough to know this myself... but give me a break... the only baby I did carry past 8 weeks was actually born... so I think being this far right now is a good sign. I am trying to be happy and excited for my baby. So why did I hesitate and not buy the doppler right away?
I know that it is important to trust God and step out in faith! But I also know that $100 can go a long way to help with other things as well. So for know I am going to pray and hope. Then when I get the good news on Thursday the first thing I will do, after praising God, is go to ebay to buy my doppler!
I think hearing the heart beat will be a great way for Chris and I to bond with this little miracle!
Thank you Lord God for today! I thank you that you have a hedge of protection around my little miracle and that you are forming this little miracle perfectly inside me. Lord I ask that you lead and guide me in the coming days and give me the peace and faith to trust that all will be well in the ultrasound on Thursday! I ask that you give the doctor the ability to easily find the baby and the heart beat on thursday and that the baby will have caught up in size to what it is supposed to be with the dates! Thank You Jesus for your healing and your mercy and your kindness! Forgive me when I stumble and fall and when I am not strong enough to hold on to hope. Be my strength when I am week and help me keep the faith for this precious miracle! In thy name I pray, amen!
