My doppler came in and it’s great! We found the heartbeat today before my appointment and then heard it again at the doctor’s office. So cool.
Apparently a lot of ultrasound technology schools will do free or low cost ultrasounds to train their students. Google free ultrasounds in your area and if a school doesn’t come up some thread on a pregnancy message board with the pertinent information will come up.

I don’t think we’ll do it, but I though someone might want the information.
I just lost a bid on eBay for a used Sonoline B fetal doppler; it sold for $50 plus $8.49 shipping. New ones are listed at $70 on Amazon, but one helpful reviewer suggested checking ClinicalGuard.com AND retailmenot.com has 5% discount code (enter clinicalguard.com in the search bar).
I just bought a new doppler online for $64 with the discount code and free shipping. It also comes with the gel and a 1 year warranty. Not bad considering the same model is $119.99 at Walgreens and a lot of the used ones aren’t much cheaper.

The finding suggests that black people have contributed to the “indigenous” British gene pool despite previous evidence to the contrary.
Africans were first recorded in northern England some 1,800 years ago, part of a Roman garrison brought in to defend Hadrian’s Wall against raids by tribes in what is now Scotland, the study team said.
But slaves from West Africa, Jobling said, were the most likely source of the African DNA revealed in the study.
“The first boatful of slaves showed up in 1555 in England, and so from that time on their numbers increased,” Jobling said.
In 1601 Queen Elizabeth I issued an edict “that black people should be expelled from Britain because there were too many of them around, which everybody ignored,” he added.
Historian Ron Ramdin, author of Reimaging Britain: 500 Years of Black and Asian History, said that by the end of the 18th century an estimated 10,000 black people were living in Britain, mostly concentrated in cities.” —Rare African DNA Discovered in White British Males
her experience: “I have been in the midst of roaring Lions, and Savage Bears, that feared neither God, nor Man, nor the Devil … and yet not one of them ever offered the least abuse of unchastity to me in word or action” (Rowlandson 1974, 108–109). Between 1675 and 1763, almost 40 percent of women who were taken captive by Native people in New England chose to remain with their captors (Namias 1993, 25).3” —Not an Indian Tradition: The Sexual Colonization of Native Peoples ANDREA SMITH (via whitedenial-ontrial)
