Brief Answer:
Get examined

Detailed Answer:

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply

1. These are also kicks (fetal movements what you have described).

2. There should be at least ten movements each day. Movements can be considered as kicks

3. Movements will be felt more after eating food.

4. If you feel any difference please see your doctor and get checked for fetal heart beat. Since you mentioned you feel less it is better to get examined by your doctor soon.

I hope your doubt is cleared.

Your baby seems to be moving adequately. There is no need for examination.

You can keep counting. If it reduces then see your doctor. As of now no need.
