I'm not currently pregnant, but my ds didn't ever move all that much. Other women talked about being kept awake all night by baby's movements, but i never experienced that. Try to relax, and remember that your tiny little babe spends a heck of a lot of time sleeping in there...it's warm and cozy, who wouldn't want to sleep?
Also, as they get bigger, you feel the kicks less because they start to get a bit cramped, so you feel shifting and stretchign more than the gymnastic endeavors of before.
Try to notice times throughout the day when dc is kicking/moving. If you think it's been a while, try lying down and actually paying attention, often, we don't even feel the movements cuz we are busy cleaning, walking, whatever, also the motion of our bods soothes the baby so that often, they will sleep while we are in motion. If you lie for awhile and still feel nothing, try drinking a big glass of cold water or oj, sometmes that can jumpstart the action.
My sis also had weird complications with emergency section, and I know how stressfull it can be to follow that with your own pregnancy, but please, for your own sanity and peace of mind, trust your baby to grow as it should, and trust your body to tell you if there is something seriously wrong...that mommy "spider sense" that begins in pregnancy will serve you well throughout parenthood.
Blessings, much movement, and even more peace of mind to you,
