In brief: Kick counts

This can be normal.
The baby may just be "sleeping" or you may be used to the kicks and not paying as much attention. You should keep track of the number of kicks in a minute and let your doctor know, . He could also do a sonogram and other tests to make sure of your baby's well being.

In brief: Movement

As babies get larger there movements will feel different.
More of a rolling type of movement. Decreased movement can be normal, but at this gestational age you should see your md and have your baby evaluated to make sure everything is normal. An anterior placenta can decreased perceived fetal movement.
