At what weeks did you all do kick counts? I never did them or worried about anything like this before...I asked my doctor and she said not till after 30 weeks, but that doesn't seem right to me.

The OB covering for my OB (who by the way, I seriously dislike- the covering OB I mean), told me to start doing them at 24 weeks, after dinner. I have discovered that honestly isn't her active time though, so I just do them periodically throughout the day, usually when I start feeling her move. I usually do them in the middle of the night, when I get up to pee and then lie back down to go to sleep- she's always active then, and it's reassuring and helps me fall back asleep.

Pretty much as soon as I was feeling Isaac consistently move I was paying attention to when his active times were and while I didn't necessarily do kick counts per say, if I didn't feel him move when I normally would, I would start doing things to get him to move.

I started doing them as soon as the movements grew to be consistant, probably between 24-28 weeks. I started earlier than my OB suggested, but given the previous loss, and that fact that I was feeling movement at 16 weeks, I felt it was important to start establishing patterns and baselines. I had one time where I grew nervous, I think around 27-28 weeks, and my OB had me in right away for a NST to check the baby out.

I don't feel the baby consistently enough until after 20 weeks. My OB never advised me, but that's when I started to do them.
