Check out those little kicks!!đź‘Ł

What you’re seeing is a c-section, where the baby was born en-caul (in the amniotic sac). See how thin the bag is? Inside is amniotic fluid and that sweet little baby! This baby is either pretty severely IUGR (IntraUterine Growth Restriction/small) or born premature because its really tiny. As the baby grows it’ll have less room in there and the kicks won’t feel quite as pronounced. Fetal movements are what you’re looking for! That’s the baby’s way of telling his mom everything’s OK! A woman can feel their baby kicking, punching, and moving often in the early weeks of the third trimester. Later in the third trimester as the baby gets larger and the uterus gets more crowded, they usually feel less kicking and more rolling and stretching. In this case, the baby was born premature. Premature birth is one that occurs before the start of the 37th week of pregnancy. This baby is not in any danger in that tiny enclosed space. He is still getting oxygen through the cord. Plus, the fluid helps cushion him.

Intrauterine growth restriction, or IUGR, is when a baby in the womb (a fetus) does not grow as expected. The baby is not as big as would be expected for the stage of the mother's pregnancy. This timing is known as an unborn baby's "gestational age." @Kumar Himanshu
