Guide Review - BabyKick kickTrak
You can carry it in your pocket or it comes with a necklace to string it on. Though some moms who tested it for me, said that it would bang into their belly as they walked, so they preferred to carry it with them instead. It does fit nicely in your hand and does not weigh a lot.
If your baby isn't moving as your doctor or midwife would like or if you have questions about fetal movements, you should contact your care provider immediately. This is one of the most important indicators of fetal health.
I'm sure the thought behind the kickTrak was to encourage more women to do the fetal kick counts by automating them. While some women would indeed be helped, other women in my test group remarked that it made them more worried or anxious. This is something to consider if you're prone to feelings of anxiety.
There are also added features on the BabyKick kickTrak, including that it syncs to your pregnancy date and even counts down the last 99 days of your pregnancy, to your due date. You can even use it to time contractions once labor has started.
