The mothers know, as their doctor has told them that the movement of the babies start to feel between the fourth and fifth month, the first few subtle movements and scratches and then already beginning to increase as the child grows. When movements become regular and you’re already used to them is when you start to pay more attention.
Once you feel the kicks and movements of your baby regularly, pay attention and tell your doctor immediately if you start to feel a reduction in the movements of your baby. And all because a reduction in the movement could indicate problems and hopefully you’ll have to do tests such as cardiotocography, in which the beating of your baby taken when active and when you are sleeping, just to know that all is well.
When you reach the third quarter is likely that your doctor gives you the recommendation that tell your baby’s kicks during the day. There are different ways to do it, but the most common is to choose a time of day, it’s best to be the same every day, to lie down to have your child kicks to make sure everything is okay.
Choose the time of day when you feel your child is more active and sit quietly or lie on your side, and let nothing distract you. What you do is count how much time passes while you feel ten movements, no matter how they are. You can count the kicks, whole body movements and elbows. If you do not feel ten movements within two hours, call your doctor immediately and discuss the situation.
