Next week's appt cannot come soon enough!
Don't worry, the exact same thing happened to me. I was feeling swishes and occasional thumps at night when I laid down from 10-12 weeks, then nothing for 3 weeks. Then dh squashed me (being goofy, didn't hurt anything), and baby started moving up a storm. I'm 15w2d, and if nothing squashes me to set baby off, I only feel occasional swishes if I'm paying still and paying CLOSE attention. I felt my first at 16 weeks, and my second at 12, so the last few weeks with no notice movements were starting to get to me. But I think it's totally normal at this stage, with the uterus changing so much and the baby having extra room to move around.
