    I'm really excited but also scared about how hard its going to be to have perfect control. I know I'm going to be so worried about the baby until its here happy and healthy. I just want time to fast forward 8 months.

    Ok thanks, I'll contact them and hopefully they will let me have one. I know I can self-fund one but its about $1000 for the transmitter and $500 a month for the sensors :/

    Yes.. Like us in Uk.. Expensive but pregnancy tends to be treated differently and funded! I hope you can get the same.
