Now that I’m nearly
halfway through my pregnancy, I consider myself an expert. As a pregnancy
expert, I can tell you that it’s completely normal to freak out at least once a
day. For me, these freak-outs culminated in the weeks before I was able to go to
the doctor to hear the baby’s heartbeat.
Once I heard it I was wholly relieved. It was music. It
was art. It was beautiful. And as with any good drug, I wanted more.
I am very lucky to have a job that includes testing tech
gadgets. Once I got over the elation of hearing my little girl’s heartbeat for
the first time, I checked out my doctor’s fetal doppler and said, “Where can I
get one of those?”
