If your pregnancy is at risk, it is even more important that you count your baby’s movements daily.
If your pregnancy is at risk, you should be followed by a specialized clinic. A pregnancy can be at risk for many reasons, for example if you have one of the following conditions:
- gestational diabetes
- twin pregnancy
- intrauterine growth restriction
- pre-existing renal disease
- placental abruption or stillbirth in a previous pregnancy
Your baby’s movements can consist of kicks, pokes, rolls, flutters or any other movement you can feel from your baby.
- you are older than 35
- you suffer from obesity
- you smoke, take drugs or drink alcohol during your pregnancy
- this is your first pregnancy
