  • Do kick counts. If you count less than 10 kicks/flutters/movements in 2 hours, you should call your doctor. You may have it (forget whats its called? placenta previa?) where your placenta blocks the babies' movement since it's upfront. (Hope that made sense)

  • It's normal and like the other person said if it's less than ten in two hours call or simply go to the hospital .

  • If you've had minimal activity from the start and all has been well in previous appointments I wouldn't worry. Now if there's a decrease in activity then you should keep a close eye and call your health care provider. The standard kick counts are based on an average and where you've been bellow average from the beginning you don't need to stress if you don't have the normal 10+ movements in two hours. Good luck and trust your instincts.
