You may be injured: Most likely you sustain an injury to your soft tissues. I think it's a good idea to see your Gyn. The location of injury will determine if you need any special treatment (stitched for sizable laceration) or no treatment at all. Sitz baths with Epsom salt may sooth the irritation in injured area. Additioinally, I'd advise to stay away from inercourse for at least a week.

See your doctor: Pain in your breasts may be due to several reasons: hormonal disbalances, fibrocystic changes, large size (which may cause back pain), not well fit bra (maybe your case), masses, etc. The only way to sort through possible conditions is to get evaluation by your doctor who may also advise you to perform other studies (X-ray, sonogram). Please don't delay the exam hoping that pain would go away.

Get evaluated by Ob: Though I understand your concerns, kick count is not very reliable method of establishing fetal wellbeing. Decreased amount of movement should be further investigated by sonographic exam and possibly fetal heart rate monitoring. I'd advise to get to your doctor to evaluate your baby's condition.
