Count your baby’s movements once a day, at the same time each day:
- Lie on your left side and focus on your baby’s movements: rolls, kicks or flutters.
- Use chart or fetal kick chart to record the number of minutes it takes to feel your baby move ten (10) times.
- You may stop counting after your baby has moved ten (10) times.
Do this once a day at approximately the same time each day. (Babies’ activity levels are usually higher in the evening after dinner.)
If your baby does not move at least ten (10) times in (12) hours or if there is a sudden decrease in movement, call your doctor.
