Like if my baby completely gyrates my stomach, that should count even though i wasn't 'kicked' right?
What about hiccups? do those indicate healthy activity and can they be counted as 'kicks'?

Obviously a baby that hiccups is alive (and so is a baby that kicks just once), but my understanding is that the point of a kick count is to see if the amount of movement changes dramatically from one day to the next.
Hiccups, unlike other fetal movements cannot be caused by shifting or bumping of the baby against you, but are *always* the baby in of itself doing something. Hope that made sense. . .
