“Our pregnancy was noneventful and fetal movement was a daily occurrence. Our little lady moved so much, I would on most days count her kicks in under three minutes. The longest it ever took to get ten kicks our whole pregnancy was 13 minutes. Then one night after work I felt like she wasn’t moving her normal rate.
After a perfectly normal first pregnancy and delivery with my oldest son, I anticipated my second pregnancy and delivery to be much the same. I was familiar with the Count the Kicks campaign and knew what to do. 38 weeks into my pregnancy with my second son, I noticed a drastic change in what had been normal movements for my baby.
I woke up for work Friday morning October 16, 2015 with my mind swirling about a busy day of meetings and home visits. I got in the shower and my little miss wasn’t kicking as she usually did. I continued to get ready still no movement. I tried a caffeine drink and still nothing.
