Never be scared to have it checked out. I noticed that in the last week of my pregnancy my LO wasn't moving unless I pushed and pushed on my tummy. They did an NST and didn't seem to have anything wrong. Then a week later I went into labor and it turns out his cord was wrapped around his neck, chest, arms. He was all tied up in there. Thankfully they did an Emergent C section and the dr said that they had to unravel him before they could even get him out. He's happy and healthy but I think about all the other babies that haven't been so lucky. SO you have every right to be concerned about the lack of movement. Moral of the story... if you're worried have it checked. Congrats of the bundle of joy!  They need to have like 10 kicks in an hours time I think it is...Look up kick counts on google and it might tell you more.

I've noticed a trend with women who are 28-32 weeks along. There seems to be a growth spurt and a "quiet time" with baby movements. Just something I've noticed from a few forums where women worry about lack of movement around the same week.

So long as you are getting at least 10 movements an hour I wouldn't worry.

Like motherof1boy said, I'd get it checked out if you're worried. I'm also 29 weeks pregnant and notice that I can go awhile without feeling the baby move...not days, but sometimes a couple of hours or so.  I remember noticing that with my first pregnancy as well.  As you get further along and the baby gets bigger (and has less room to move around) it's common to notice a change in movement.  For example, my OB just told me that my baby is down head down and the movement (where I feel it and how it feels) has really changed from when he/she was laying sideways.
