So the baby has been kicking a lot lately and it seems like every time it does and I want to show my hubby it stops kicking?!?!? Has this ever happened to you? We are at the stage now where they recommend “kick counting”. I came across this interesting blog that talked about “what are fetal kick counts and why are they important” Usually the baby moves when I eat or drink anything, and i’ve noticed a lot of moment especially when I drink a big glass of cold water.
Here are some other tips from the article I was telling you about to get the baby to move:
Tip #1 Eat something. This should wake the baby.Lie on either side. Put your hand on your belly over the baby. When you count 10 move- ments you are done. The 10 movements should happen within two hours. Most women feel 10 movements in less than 30 minutes. Do this one time every day.
Decide when your baby is most active. Maybe at night or early morning. Follow the same procedure described above.
Things to remember about Fetal Kick or Movement Counts:
• A sleeping baby usually does not move.
• Most babies wake up and move when their mother eats or drinks something.
• Every baby’s movements are different.
• There is no official standard for baby movement other than 10 kicks in two hours.
• Be aware of your baby’s movements every day.
• Take the time to check movements every day.
• Make checking your baby’s movement part of your daily routine.
