My little guy entered this world at 32 weeks gestation. I was always very in tune with my pregnancy and paid close attention to the times where he was the most active. I picked a certain time every day to count his kicks. One day I noticed that I wasn’t feeling him move as much so I got a little worried. I ended up having a non-stress test and a biophysical profile ultrasound. He failed both tests. I was admitted to the hospital for observation and later had an emergency C-section.
The doctor said had I not paid attention to his kicks that he would not be here with us today. My son’s cord was wrapped around his neck numerous times which was restricting his movements. Kicks are very important in all pregnancies and definitely can save a life. My son is living proof of that.
