Hi!
I am not sure why your wife would not feel movement at eight months.  If she was my patient I would have her come in urgently for an ultrasound.
Depending upon ultrasound findings, I might recommend genetic testing.
Sometimes women can't feel movement well if they are very large.  It can be difficult to feel the baby through a thick abdomen.
Hope this helps!
Dr B
