I got told not to count the kicks any more & just to go by your babies regular pattern. As if there's not enough to worry about already, adding hourly kicking on top 😅
I wouldn’t worry about counting kicks, it starts to become an unhealthy habit and just adds to worry (did for me anyways). As long as you can feel them move throughout the day your all good. I know people say that if you notice reduced movement from your usual pattern to seek advise but I never had a pattern. Everyone is different. You’ll know if something doesn’t feel right 💙💕
Kick counts is very outdated advice. Should go by regular pattern, example every night before you go to bed, baby having a party, or everytime you eat, or about 4pm when your show is on etc Routines are important, if something is out of routine, whether it’s increased movements or decreased get checked immediately. Please do not overlook baby being “too active” just because they’re moving, still get checked.
I use count the kicks app at the same time each night, its a really helpful way to keep track of it
I didn’t count movements. He was a bit active during the day (I worked all the way up to the day before my induction) and was active more when I started to relax. He was a very active baby and he still is. He loves to be moving and trying to get where he needs to go as fast as possible 😂 All ultrasounds and screenings were perfectly normal, even now his blood tests and check ups are normal.
