hey Momee to be
its good to hear that u are aware of some complication, at this stage your baby still developing and with a little bit of a space available to move, should there be something discomforting your baby, she can still move with easy and safely. your gynae or your Dr will be able to advise if there are dangers close to your baby and also through ultrasound scan they will see any abnormalities close to your baby. enjoy the movements of your baby at this stage. avoid alcohol and

You can only start feeling movement at 16 weeks, and even then it' s very light movement. But go for a scan if it' ll make you feel better.
It is very normal to stress about every little thing that can go wrong while youre pregnant. Try not to stress too much as it' s not good for the baby. So yet another thing to stress about!

When did last feel her/him moving? You must also understand that they move when they feel, they don' t have to move everyday

Please see ur Dr just to be on a safe side-better be safe than sorry. Gudluck hope all is well.
