I was worried every single day with my baby girl. I have had previous miscarriages, but I made it to 12 weeks. I felt like okay, one milestone down… but at 15 weeks, I had a massive bleed. Since I’d been through this before, I was mentally preparing myself as I drove myself and my just 3-year-old to the hospital per my doctor’s orders.
At 37 weeks I noticed a decrease in my baby’s movements. I mentioned it to my OB at my checkup that day and (after several tests) ended up delivering our baby the same day.
Our sweet little boy had a true knot in his cord!
If I didn’t know about Count the Kicks, I don’t know if I would have been as aware of my baby’s movements as I was, and who knows what could have happened.
Three years ago, as I experienced the worst moment of my life, I didn’t know that it would change to become one of the best moments of my life.
After four weeks of labor that wouldn’t progress but still too early to receive any medical treatments that would advance it, a tiny baby was finally born after a decrease in fetal movement.
