I have never done "kick counting".....do you count anytime you feel the baby move at all?

  • no I dont count, as long as I feel baby kicking at different times throughout the day I dont worry. I guess I did it once when I was pregnant with my son cause I had worked to hard, felt awful, and hadnt felt him move for a while, so I was worried and counted for a few days after that, but thats about it.

  • I'm not pregnant now but I never did. I remember mum saying something about this when I was, about how she was told to when she had me and my sis. Anyway no I never did.

  • I never counted I just got used to the times of day my babies were most active, they were both pretty consistent.

  • yeah, I'm unsure the point of it but I guess it's not that important unless I was in pain or something, i don't know :)

  • With my youngest, I paid closer attention to his movement. I was high risk and they told me that if I didn't feel movement every hour, I should go immediately to the ER. I don't think kick counting is necessary unless there is a problem suspected or if you notice that your normally active baby is suddenly not moving much.

  • Nope. I just felt several times a day to make sure it all felt ok.

  • just make sure that they stay active throughout the day. Don't stress too much over it as long as the baby is still moving like normal.
