So...I ordered a Fetal Heart Doppler...It came in the mail yesterday and....................................................................
I found the HB and baby is just moving and heart is just beating away. I will be 11 weeks Thursday. HR is anywhere between 165 and 177. It is great.
My OB is on the verge of getting fired. She called me today and discouraged the use of the doppler amongst other things..She said, "Frankly, if you don't get a Heartbeat at 2:00 in the morning I don't want to hear from you." I put her in her place when I said to her, "I appreciate her call, I have alredy received the doppler. (apparently without her approval) I used to work in antepartum and postpartum care" and I had to remind her that I am a nurse who has realistic expectations. She was like Oh, Ok. So did you find the heartbeat, I said, "Absolutely."
That cut her lose pretty quickly. I think I am going to change OBs after my 5/8 appointment. I will let her know my frustrations and concerns about her nonchalant attitude and I will consider changing over to her partner in the same office or going with one of the OB docs I know closer to home. Been with her 12 or so years and I hate to cut her lose, but she is pushing me..I AM IN A HORMONAL RAGE...LOL ask my DH he'll tell you.
