moves 10 times before 12 in the afternoon???

my doc says to make sure my baby moves at lest 10 times before noon
well today i was a sleep till 1 pm (i was up all night being sick)
so i did not get to count the kicks
plus i really never feel her move i think im used to it
i know she is alive and good cuz she has the huccips (spelling?) right now
she also moves way more at night
i guess my question is is it bad that i cant really feel her move in the morning?????

  • mine doesnt either just count when your baby is more active 10 times in an hour if one hour you dont get 10 try eating something or drinking something then try again if no 10 kicks in the 2nd hour go get monitered also hiccups dont count they are involentary movements everything else counts tho rolls kicks twitchs everything but hiccups

  • no all babies are diff. they seem to be more active when your not. unless you are high risk, you can count the kicks when ever you want not just in the morning, if the baby is more active at night then count them at night. all the counting is for is to try and keep track of the baby to see if it is ok, if little movement if felt in a certain amount of time then something might be wrong. but as long as the baby is moving at night it is ok, i'm sure it is moving during the day, you just might not realize it with your activity

  • Each hiccup is one move. Besides, I think your doc is trying to get you to pay more attention....if you count nine moves before 12, it doesn't mean the baby is not well. She may sleep more during the morning and that is why you don't feel her move. She will probably move more after you eat, too. Try looking for movement after breakfast.
