    Tbh I've never been told to count kicks and I think it's more about feeling movement regularly and in tune with what your baby usually does. My mw said if you have a quiet period then sit or lie fur an hour (eat and drink something cold) and if you feel nothing call labour triage. Tbh if baby is quieter you should phone them for reassurance. They won't think you're time wasting
    I find food nearly always wakes squiggle up. And also I get a pattern of a, few quieter days and a few crazy days.
    The bottom line is if you're at all worried call labour ward or your mw (whichever she advised to do)

    I hope your back pain improves hun xxx
