Fetal Movements

I was worried about fetal movement last week. I thought the baby wasn't moving enough so I called my OB. The nurse asked me if I had been feeling at least 5 kicks/hour. I had no idea, and I have no idea who is keeping a record of this.
So, instead I was told to drink some water, then drink something with sugar in it (juice, coke, etc) and lie down for an hour. I had to stay there and count kicks (up to 5) for an hour.
I felt 5 in less than an hour, so officially everything is okay, but it was a really boring/stressful time waiting for those kicks. I still don't keep track of the kicks/hour (because I have a normal life I assume), but it's nice to know I can check on things easily.
