- Baby Saves
“I had an ultrasound at 36 weeks that showed that everything was just right. Daisy was head down and looked good, and she was also an active baby! She had a fairly routine pattern of movement that I caught on to quickly.
One week later, at 10 p.m. I only felt four kicks in a time that normally would have been very active for her. I thought it was strange, but as I got ready for bed I figured I would feel her some more.
I woke up around 5 a.m. and still felt nothing. I immediately ate some ice cream and drank some juice to try to get her moving … still nothing. My husband and I headed to the hospital and called the doctor on the way.
I believed I was going to find out that we lost her. However, she had a heart beat. We ended up having an emergency C-section and she had a stay in the NICU, but she is here today and is the most wonderful little sunshine!
My doctor told me that if we had come in a few hours later we would have lost her. No one knows what happened that caused her distress – there was nothing wrong with the cord or placenta, and no infection. Noticing her lack of movement saved her life!” -Keri C., Daisy’s mom
