Baby movements
Hi doc
I am 7 months pregnant. My gynae says that my baby should be moving at least 10 times a day.
If my baby doesn't have at least 10 movements a day, could this indicate that there is something wrong?
Although I do have more than 10 movements a day, my baby doesn't kick me as such and doesn't push back when I press my tummy.
Should I be concerned?

As long as you are having more than 10 movements a day, that is fine. They do not have to be big kicks and the baby does not have to respond to your pressing on your tummy.
