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.
