Doppler Dud

What's wrong with this picture?

a) Minnesota weather is so rough that Annie started to grow hair on her tummy just to stay warm!
b) Annie somehow miraculously appears 9 months pregnant at only 11 wks!
c) The Pocket Fetal Doppler is crap and will give you a number on anything and even in midair!!

If you chose C you are correct.  We just bought the doppler off Ebay. Warning - Chinese knockoffs are abundant! When I lived in Taiwan and China, I saw plenty of folks pulling gadgets apart so they could make a knockoff version. Luckily, Annie found a friend who was selling an extra. So until it arrives, Annie is in hyper-anxiety hyper-drive!!!! 

We did get some good news - Annie won the drug battle. She was able to convince the mail-order pharmacy to take the drugs back since they were exposed to sub-zero temps during shipment. The package was supposed to be picked up by UPS today, but it is still sitting out on the porch. Those drugs are definitely frozen now, in spite of  the "special packaging!" 

Annie has just informed me that my sexual privileges have yet again been revoked because it's just too stressful for her. I am off to bed alone!!!!!!! :(  The leopard print was good while it lasted.  Dry spell ahead!

If that other doppler you're getting doesn't work out, I rented a hospital grade doppler from Baby Beats for the entirety of my pregnancy. It was amazing! All the dopplers you can get online for less than $200 are complete crap! Good luck!!!

LOL...great pic! I bought a doppler for around $75 on amazon, I love it though! I ignore the numbers, I just listen for the awesome heartbeat...:)

glad the pharmacy is being reasonable and took responsibility for their error.

hope your doppler arrives soon.

Not very helpful (but amusing for those of us not relying on it to help sooth some fear. ;-) ).
