Fetal Movement Chart

Instructions: A daily diary of your baby’s movements can provide useful information. Select one hour convenient to you to count each time your baby moves. Lying on your left side (especially after eating) while counting improves the circulation to the baby and often makes a baby more energetic. If the baby should move less than four times in an hour, you should call the office for fetal heart rate monitoring and further evaluation of the baby’s well-being. Otherwise, bring this sheet with you to each office visit. Start charting at 28 weeks gestation.
