“My daughter was due May 7, 2018, but after feeling decreased movement over the course of 36 hours I went in to get checked just to be safe. Prior to going to the hospital I ate espresso ice cream, laid down, poked and prodded, and did anything I could possibly try to feel her move and also downloaded and used the Count the Kicks app to make it more concrete that I wasn’t feeling movement.
“When I was pregnant with my second son, now 3 1/2, I noticed that he was just as active as his big brother during the evenings. The day I reached 38 weeks, however, I spent the day ‘nesting’ in anticipation of our planned C-section, and when I sat down that night, I noticed that he wasn’t moving very much.
Skyler was a very active baby and was always very active on ultrasounds until Sept. 23, 2019. I was 35 weeks and 3 days along, and I noticed that he wasn’t moving as much and that it was taking longer than normal to get his 10 kicks. I called the doctor and asked if I should come and get checked out, and she suggested I come in if he didn’t get the 10 kicks in 2 hours.
