Aug 1 2010 My babies were born big and it seemed like they never stopped kicking (while in utero) so I didn't do specific kick counts. When I noticed a decline in movement with my little guy once he was eight days overdue, I headed for the hospital. He was born the next morning. My expectant sister's doctor has her patients chart their baby's movements starting at the 28th week of pregnancy. The mom-to-be monitors 10 kicks or jabs in a two-hour interval. Did you keep track of your child's kicks?
