  • My doc said at 6 months you start! But as soon as you feel them regularly you start counting! 6-8 kicks or flutters in an hour is the norm! GL!

  • just take an hour of your time every day and lay on your left side and rub your belly and talk to her and count how many times she kicks! Its good bonding time for you and baby. Get daddy involved too if she hasnt moved that much, drink a coke or eat a candy bar then do it!
