Last week I was at my GP’s surgery at 8pm at night because I was worried about my unborn baby.
The next day, I got a fresh sneak-peak of what’s going on with my baby via ultrasound.
Medical experts say he’s doing great and when I said, “hello baby”, he heard me and opened his eyes right in front of me.
The following day I started checking in with him and monitoring his movements via a new Mum + Bub SmartBand and it put my mind at ease.
After logging kicks for a week on the smartband, I can now see on a he's been kicking a lot.
It's hard to believe that it made me feel more connected to him, but it's made me stop when he moves and note it. It's made me more aware of him and intentionally take time out to say hello.
But logging his movements has been a good way of reminding me of what I'm going through and the amazement of it all again.
The activity tracker has also helped me be better with my water intake. I set reminders on the band and can log that too.
