good luck at your appt!

I don't know if I would get rid of a doppler until the end or not - I guess it would depend on how I was feeling. But I remember at 38 or 39 weeks with Levi, one Sunday morning he was still (sleeping?) for longer than normal and I didn't feel anything for a good hour. I was just getting really worried, and about to go to the hospital, when he woke up and started moving like normal. I would have liked to have a doppler handy at that moment.
But that was only one moment out of all the weeks...

They definitely do, and it definitely can be scary - especially after a loss, when you're analyzing every.little.thing.

He did the doppler and found the baby's HB for like 2 seconds but didn't really search more. If I hadn't been using my doppler at home I'd have been quite disappointed in that. I got bloodwork orders to do the 2hr. glucose test now rather than waiting until 28 weeks because I had GD with my son. So I'll go do that. Hopefully the results are negative.
Shucks, sorry about you missing your own OB - I suppose another birth is a valid excuse
good luck on the GD testing! Is 28 weeks when they normally do it? I couldn't remember, when I was trying to think back.
