BH can be anything related, or nothing related, really. Stress triggers makes sense, and the position of sitting in the car. I get a lot when I get dehydrated and when I'm walking a lot, too.

That's great that they got you in so soon! I like their attitude already and I'm not even the one going. =) So your DH will be able to take off easily then?
Oh boy. Now I have a new fun thing to do when I am bored... google doppler sounds. =) I don't have my doppler anymore, but I kind of remember a bunch of weird sounds I heard and would love to know what they were. Stay warm and have fun at the parade!
AFM: so I am going to go ahead and make a gender guess... I cannot stop looking at girly things. I have come up with a ton of girl names and some of them DH actually kind of likes. I told him I have girl on the mind a lot lately and he agreed. So my guess is the opposite, boy. I had a dream that I was sure it was a girl and out popped a boy so yeah... I'm guessing boy. =)
Me too - I'm still nervous to go, but I'm feeling more comfortable thinking about going there than I was before just thinking about the u/s in general or especially the thought of having to go to the other hospital.
Yes, DH will easily be able to get that afternoon off - he's teaching on the hutterite colony in the afternoons, so all he'll have to do is let the principal know what it's about and they'll get a sub (or maybe they won't - up to them).
I just googled placenta doppler sound and got a few good links right away. Not really much I didn't know, other than the placenta "wind" sound, but neat all the same.
I'm so glad you said all that and then guessed boy! I was thinking the same as I was reading it, lol.
When I was pregnant with Levi we were able to think of a girls' name easily, I kept loving girly stuff and even bought a few girl things - when I did, DH told me I just made the baby a boy
I really don't know this time - usually I just guess whatever is the opposite of what I'm feeling like it is, but this time I don't have any strong feelings either way. The only thing that makes me think one way or the other is the m/s this time - had it a lot with the girls, barely at all with the boys. So, we'll see.
AFM: Don't know why I forgot it, but remembered when posting about the doppler stuff there - on Thursday, when we got Hiccup's hb (ever so quickly, but a few times chasing him) the Dr said "that's the baby" to Levi. On Friday, as soon as Levi saw the doppler, he rushed over to watch, when he heard the hb he said "that's baby!"
