Lord of the dance

Thanks so much for the advice, encouragement, and good wishes. I'm trying to just take things as they come and to keep a close eye on Eggbert's movements.

Here are the kick counts for the past three days (one hour each day). My doctor ordered me to go straight to labor and delivery if the count is ever below 3.


Obviously Eggbert hasn't looked at the ultrasound, since his or her preparations for the baby Olympics continue.

Over a hundred kicks/hour. No wonder I can't sleep.

He is obviously a future soccer champion. So glad to hear everything is doing well. I know how scary the situation is. Just take a lot of rest and eat tons of proteins! It is also a good time to read books about raising babies (like The Baby Whisperer) or breastfeeding. You want to be prepared! I also did a lot of online shopping during the last weeks of my pregnancy. Good luck with everything. And again, if you have any question, feel free to email me directly!

Lord of the Dance - good title. I hope that you are going t count many many more kicks each day and that "everything" continues to look good though a bit on the smaller side. Hugs.

Wow, you're baby is so active!

My doctor told me to count to 10 kicks starting from 9 am. Then I need to note the time when I reach 10.
If I don't get to 10 by 9 pm, I have to go to the hospital.

Some days I get to 10 within the hour, other days it takes a few hours.

Hang in there. Keep on kicking little Eggbert!

Perhaps Eggbert isn't gaining weight due to burning so much energy with the athletics?

Certainly, I hope things turn around and that your little one gets back on track so you can get re-focus on the irrational fears.

I also had to do kick counts for Son #2 and like you, my little guy hardly EVER stopped moving! In fact, that baby is now 17 and still hasn't stopped :) Be prepared for a very active child :)
