No: If you can get to 10 in less than an hour, that's as reassuring as you can hope for at home. To be doubly sure, call your doctor and he/she will likely want to listen to the baby's heart rate for 20 minutes. This is called a Non-Stress Test, and if normal would predict less than 1% chance of fetal demise in 4 days.
