Most beautiful sound I've ever heard. 145 BPM.

Babybeat arrived yesterday and I am in love. This is the greatest home appliance since TiVo. OK, it's even better than TiVo. And you know my deep and abiding love of TiVo.

Jeff and I listened for much longer than necessary, wearing down the batteries because we just couldn't get enough. I can't believe I waited this long to get one; it lifted a thick, dull, oppressive fog from my brain.

Thank you, lovely ladies, for your guidance on this. It was invaluable.

Still manically busy but hope to come up for air in the next couple of weeks. An actual, real post--one that I can spend more than seven minutes writing--should follow.

You can always buy new batteries. And doppler gel. Listen to it as much as you want, it is super!

I used mine just this morning!

If you have to ride the roller coaster, at least you deserve some good theme-park music!

Hooray! I would probably make a holster for it, to take it everywhere...

Yes, I also want to know how many weeks you have to be in order to pick up the heartbeat. And how much does it cost? I wonder if I should buy one while I'm in the US doing my FET in January (cause I'm sure I wouldn't be able to get one here in the desert).

By the way, Bugs, could you update my web address on your sidebar links list? http://talesofawessel.typepad.com

Sweet music to the ears and a salve to the mind. I'm thrilled y'all found the beat so quickly (my husband was better at finding it than I was in the beginning, then I mastered it). A hell of a great way to spend your evening, wasn't it?! Enjoy :-)

Try to restrain yourself from zapping your baby with sound waves more than once a week, please.

So glad you got your doppler and were able to find the heartbeat! It is an amazing thing and one that I likely won't give up until after the lowercase is here (even if one of my peri's nurses did yell at me and tell me that I shouldn't have one because I'm untrained and wouldn't know the difference between MY heart and my son's)

I'm so glad your babybeat is bringing you peace of mind. LIstening to that heartbeat can calm me on the worst of my panicky days.
