Thanks for the query.
If you have been experiencing baby movements earlier and then you have not been able to experience it now for last 3 days, then it is important that you should get an ultrasound repeated again to look for foetal viability. Absence of baby movements is not a good signing may be associated with foetal demise. So please visit the ER at the earliest to get yourself evaluated.
Hope this helps.
