-jot down the time of the babys first kick (movement) and the time of the 10th kick
-Since healthy babies have sleep cycles, your baby may not kick or kick less than usual or have less than 10 kicks in 2 hrs if so wake up the baby by drinking fluid or by walking for 5 min repeat the kick count
-CONTACT YOUR PROVIDER if your baby still has less than 10 kicks in 2 rhs or if there is decrease or significant change in fetal movement.
