The normal range of movements is at least 10-12 times in 12 hrs. If you have that much movement its fine. Its possible the fetus might move lightly and not as hard as before.As the fetus grows in size,there will be less space inside the womb so the movement might be less. You should keep a daily fetal kick count and anything less than that,see your doctor for an exam.

OBGYN Dr. Shobha Vennam's  Response
The unborn baby in mother's womb does not move all the time. Sometimes, it goes into sleep and the mother feels few movements. This is a natural phenomenon with unborn babes. However, your past history regarding pregnancies surely suggests you go for a visit to an Obstetrician. I would suggest you have an antenatal ultrasonogram along with biophysical profile study of fetus. Did you undergo testing for TORCH titres and karotyping? Do you have any discharge from nipple or watery discharge from vagina? Please visit a Doctor immediately in case of any of these or even otherwise. My best wishes go with you!
