I am 28 weeks pregnant and in the past 12 hours haven't really felt any movememnt i usually feel him kicking but i haven't felt that. What should I do?

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.
