Kung Fu King

In case I haven't mentioned it.... Okay, so I haven't mentioned it, but anyone who reads this probably already knows- we're going to have a baby boy in December. Currently we are 21.5wks along. And I'm worried.

For the past ~3weeks I've been feeling this guy move. And I mean he moves! It seems like he NEVER settles down. Bridget was active in utero, but this guy- HOLY COW! And it worries me because B was all wrapped up in her umbilical cord (around her arm, around her waist twice, and then around a leg....) which was the cause of her emergency c-section. If she did all that with her movement, I can't even imagine what this guy is doing. He's going to have is cord in knots- literally. I'm hoping to try for a VBAC, but if he's in knots and requires a c-section, I have NO problem telling the doc, "Go for it!"

Don't get me wrong- I LOVE feeling him and knowing that he's doing okay. But, settle down, Dude. You're making me worry over things that I never would have thought about, if it hadn't been for B's experience. :)


  1. Andrew NEVER stopped moving in utero... and in fact, he still hasn't. I never, ever had to do kick counts.

  2. Maggie moved like crazy too- I had trouble sleeping at times because of it! She kicked my laptop so hard it bounced! hehe And as far as I know, there were no cord issues... so try and rest your mind a bit. (I know it's easier said than done, though!)
