Not a kick counting app
Kicks are supposed to be measured by time - doctors say 10 kicks in 2 hours. This app does not track time but “sessions of movement” in a day. Not truly a kick counting app.
What's the point?
Kicks are supposed to measured by time. Most doctors want to know how long it takes until you feel 10 movements. This app lets you count the movements, but it doesn't record how long it took you to reach your number. It just keeps track of total movements per day, which is ridiculous. Who has time to sit around and count every movement in a day and night? What we really want to see is a ratio of movements to time, so that we can observe a pattern or a decrease in activity.
I have been using this app for a couple weeks and I like that you record a kick for a session instead of timing it. I don't want to sit around staring at my phone until baby moves. I just want to look back and see how many instances I felt her move each day! This app is perfect for me because I pop it open, hit the feet for a kick and hit save. Three clicks! Then it shows her average for the day and week and when she moves most often!!
Unfortunately the past few mornings when I go to open it, it starts over like I've never used it and has completely wiped my data so I don't have any recorded information. 😔 It's not terrible since I know her average per day and this just helps my pregnancy brain each night to know she's moved. But it is frustrating.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
