       Kick counts are designed to help you monitor your baby’s well-being at home.

       If indicated by your physician, you may routinely check kick counts. Your doctor will instruct
       you on how many times to do them each day. One of the best times is late afternoon or early
       evening.

       Below is a record to help you keep track of the movements. You can then return this to your
       doctor to review.
          •        In the first two columns, write the date and day followed by the time you start.

          •         Lie in a quiet place on your left side. With your hands on your abdomen and full
                    concentration, cross out the numbers (one per movement) in the column “Number of
                    Baby Movements.

          •         When you have crossed out all 10 numbers for that day, write the time you
                                            finished down in the last column.

                                              If you have been lying down for 1 hour and have not felt
                                              10 movements, drink 8 ounces of orange juice, lie down
                                              and monitor again for 1 hour. If there are not 10
                                              movements in the second hour, call your doctor’s office.
                                              During the day, please call (217) 525-0210.
                                              After hours, go to the hospital.
