"Pregnancy is full of uncertainty and when it comes to my baby’s movements I will admit that I am more uncertain than ever.
I am a researcher. I like to do things by the book. I have read all of the pregnancy books. The positive birth and labour books and am now flying through my week to week guide of actually raising my baby. Tick, tick and tick. But when it comes to tracking movements I’ve always felt like a bit of a failure in that department because honestly, I don’t think my baby has that much of a pattern. Maybe that is my baby’s pattern? Who knows, but I’m 34 weeks and it’s still something that I don’t feel like a pro over.
Using an app, or a journal never really felt as good as simply 'tuning in,' but I would gladly say that my Aska Maternity bracelet has given me a middle ground. I have it on me at all times. It takes no effort to move the pendant, and although I’m still not religious with tracking - it has formed somewhat of an idea for me in a way that doesn't cause me anxiety.
I was admitted to hospital yesterday for reduced frequency and strength in movements and am thrilled to say that all is well with baby. Who knows, maybe my Aska bracelet has simply helped me remain a little more aware of my little fella :)"
