Morning Bree My babs was very quiet all weekend and i had to ring the hospital, i was worried that she wasnt moving much. They wanted me to go in for a trace but sure enough babs moved then. I checked the net, and my baby books and they all say 10 movements per hours. My baby book says count bumps,rolls or definate movements except hicups?? Dont know why? I think its fairly normal for movement to slow down, their getting fairly squished in there, but so long as your getting the 10 movements in an hour i wouldnt worry. :wv

the midwife told me 10 movements a day - never knew it was per hour

o.m.g - 10 an hour? im defo getting no where near that, am lucky if i poked ten movement out of it over past 24hrs! usually its quite til evening then goes mad...but yesterday evening there wasnt as much as a roll! funny u should say about the hiccups mid, cos i felt them this morning & presumed it was okay then....

i thought it was 10 movements per 12 hours.... my baby definitely doesn't have 10 movements per hour.

10 an hour!! :eek :eek :eek Bree, I'm the same. Babs has defo slowed right down. Wakes up at 10 every night for his/her nightly dancing competition but I really do not feel much movement during the day unless I make a effort to get it moving ie sitting down, cold water etc. Maybe you should be feeling 10 movements an hour but I'm afraid I am no way even close to that tally. :o(

It's not ten every hour, it couldn't be...more like 10 within your active hour as they all have a pattern really.

Ladies Just did some google research on it It seems to be that we should be detecting 10 movements in 2 hours I must say that I don't know if I detect that many and I would have thought that hiccups count towards it. Some websites that might make interesting reading: - about feeling 10 movements in 2 hours - link to website that you can record baby kicks It can make you worry sometime but I notice that my baby tends to be quiet during the day but goes mad in the evening and at night when I am trying to sleep.

Sorry for freaking ye out girls. I didnt mean to worry anyone. I just checked my book again and it says 10 per hour. Maybe im in active labour like someone said and i havent realised :o0 Ill have a look at the links posted above, maybe they can shed some light. :wv

Mrs Cat - can you just clarify for me what you meant? ''It's not ten every hour, it couldn't be...more like 10 within your active hour as they all have a pattern really.'' how do mean within your active hour - whats the difference between an active hour and not so active hour. Now im confused as well. Cheers
