It's so interesting to me . . . I had two with my first pg (threatened miscarriage), and DS1 always did try to run away from the doppler, too.
I had none with 2nd pg - used some doppler, but not a lot.
None with 3rd pg and some doppler but not a lot.
Won't have any with this one unless there's a good reason. Doppler is okay with me occasionally.
My SIL is an OB/GYN and I overheard a conversation she was having with my other SIL while 2nd SIL was pg. 2nd SIL was pointing out that most people at her birth center didn't have u/s (although she chose to). 1st SIL said, in tones of true shock, "but . . . but . . . how can you go through a whole pregnancy without an ultrasound? What if something was *wrong*?"
Um. Almost everything that could be wrong is something nobody can change. Anyway . . .
