  • I started feeling regular kicks (inside and out) at 16 weeks. But it's different for everyone. You're supposed to be able to do kick counts (counting 10 movements a day) from 24 weeks.

  • 10 an HOUR?! sheesh. What happens when he has a sleepy hour?? I've been going by 10 a day, though he's usually very active, so I don't worry. Thanks for the clarification!

  • I didn't feel REGULAR kicks until about 24 weeks. My OB said to not even owrry about kick counts until week 28... then it's 10 kicks and hour. It really depends on your weight as well, thinner women usually feel them earlier than heavier women. So, good luck!

  • mrsuem- it's 10 and hour at their MOST active times... like at night or in the morning. Lay on your left side, drink juice and you can usually feel ten. I don't feel 10 an hour all day but when i lay down to rest at those times I do. I feel it randomly all day... i'm 31 weeks
