“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.
The night of Feb. 2, 2018 I wasn’t feeling very well and finally tried to go to sleep around midnight. I had done my kick counting earlier that evening around 6 as usual and my little girl was kicking just fine. I woke up (I believe Jesus woke me up to start the process) around 3:15 a.m.
