  • It's 10 kicks in an hour, not 10 minutes although some may kick that often. Your going to scare her.... I'm 30 weeks and still don't usually get 10 kicks in 10 mintues every day, although, sometimes I do! Just relax and start counting in a month!

  • Don't worry about it at all. I was the same way, I'm almost 30 now but I remember those days! I'm a little overweight too and 3 trips to the ER later... the baby is STILL fine. LOL. I really didn't start feeling her regularly until 28 weeks, and most OB's recommend that time to start kick counts anyways. Just make sure you feel her sometimes. Congrats

  • During my first pregnancy I did my counting (you know ten kicks in ten minutes) I didn't feel her very often, but the kicks I did feel were strong. So If I got 6-7 good hard kicks and a couple of mediocre ones I was still alright. As long as all your appointments are ok, you should be just fine. You're little one could be a sleepy bugger. And the farther along you get the more you'll feel her move because she'll have less room, so to kick you'll feel her back or arm or knee move as well as the kick. :)

  • lol sorry! I didn't mean to scare you! I used to get 10 in 10 all the time, and that's what my doctor recommended for me to count (I think because I was already paying attention and that was the norm). But I could be wrong, an hour sounds more reasonable! :)
