‘I started using the Count the Kicks app with my son during the third trimester and loved the ease of use and peace of mind it helped provide. So when I was pregnant with my daughter I downloaded it again at the start of the third trimester. When I was 33 weeks along, I noticed one day that her movements were very different.
“I had my second high risk pregnancy this past year…and due to lupus was considered high risk. My last two pregnancies, I had also had preeclampsia and bed rest…However, the pregnancy went very smoothly in the first two trimesters. Once I was 28 weeks, my ob/gyn told me to start doing kick counts, and she wanted them done twice daily.
I had a C-section scheduled for September 6, 2016. After months of concerning messages to my doctors that my son was breech, I kept getting the response, “He will flip.” Went in for my 36 week appointment and the NP told me he had flipped head down, I was so excited!
