We will have doppler for the next 2 appt. (Dr. said she just needed 20 sec- so that's what I'll give her, she would like to make sure everything is fine, so it's more for her records than my desire to hear it) then I am ordering a fetoscope and she will use that. HB-ing w/ mw later, and will allow some doppler use in labor, very minimal- once or twice. But fetoscope is so hard to hear w/ and mw is hard of hearing- that combined w/ labor sounds, etc.
If the dr. isn't comfortable with my decisions then I will do my own prenatals, but she seems to respect me quite well, so I don't think there will be problems.
