Have you ever wanted a stethoscope?

I would buy one if I saw one affordably at a yardsale. I am not sure if I ever listened to a heartbeat through one and I would like to. I would also like to listen for blood flow. My cousins are nurses one is actually a nurse practitioner but I don't have that kind of work ethic and I don't generally care for blood and guts. I would enjoy having a stethoscope though. Maybe it would help me listen to private conversations...

I used to try my dads out when he was in nursing school. It loses its excitement after a few times.

Yes, it probably would! It might be handy to have around though.

Haha. I wouldn't buy one with the hope of eavesdropping with it - and you'd look pretty funny standing next to a door with your stethoscope held to it!

Oh hmm, that would have been exciting to hear the baby's heartbeat. I remember being extremely excited about my son's heartbeat when he was in utero.

@Courtlynn I just remember that funny wooshing sound..but I think the doctor may have let me listen to the heartbeat. I know I heard it. That was a happy day!

Yes, I could listen in to my neighbors, and hope one doesn't hit the wall really hard. Just kidding, I wouldn't want anyone to do that to me, so I wouldn't to them. That was funny though.

When my former roomie was here, he used to talk in his room with the door shut all the time. I was always thinking it would be interesting to eavesdrop..and I could have held a glass to the wall..but with my luck I would have been caught..pretty hard to make up an excuse for that....although I never did it..you have to respect someone's privacy especially in this kind of living situation!

@snowy22315 I agree that you would need to respect his privacy, but I would also want to know what he was talking about.

I never thought to listen to private conversations, but we live in an individual house, so I see no need to have a stethoscope.

I was kind of kidding about that..but I can think of times when having a stethoscope would come in handy. Of course I like to play amateur physician anyway.

Yes, I would listen to my cats lungs too..he has a breathing issue so I would like to know what his lungs sound like. He seems pretty darn healthy though so we haven't gone to the vet..but it might be in order.

I will buy one if I can find a cheap one, but it may just be a novelty.
