I remembered something today while at work.

I am a Labor and Delivery Nurse.

Do you know what that means?  It means that I have unlimited access to sono machines, Doppler’s, fetal monitoring equipment……….

You see where I am going with this.

The bright light went off over my head when I got called down to recovery room to get heart tones on a 13 week pregnant woman who had just had some minor surgery.

As I was finding the heartrate, it hit me.

“I am finding a heart rate.  With a Doppler.  On someone who is just 3 weeks ahead of me.”

Quickly, I rushed back up to L&D, threw myself into an empty room, and proceeded to find and listen to my Baby Dub’s Heartrate go from 130s-140s for about 5 minutes!!!!

Needless to say, I am over the moon.



  1. *giggle* Girl, do what you gotta do! And yea for a great heartrate for Baby Dub.

  2. You are awesome! I love it!

  3. oooh fun! I wish I would have had fun stuff like that to play with when I was pregnant!
