that's a very expensive purchase, why do you think you need one?
you can mesure your contractions with a watch- hospitals have those machines just to see how soon they come and go, which could be done with a watch, they just dont have the man power to sit in a room all day timing them.
I wouldnt bother buying one of those because its not needed.
Im really curious, why is it that you want one so badly.

You want to be an electronic fetal monitor to observe contractions? WHY?!
They should be used by train professionals; even still "trained professionals" don't always know how to read them. They often get misinterpreted.
No one should be renting them, it is a HUGE liability!!! They have risks assoicated with them.
Use a stopwatch to monitor your contractions.
