Ideally you should feel a baby kick, swish, or flutter at least 10 times in 2 hours. If you feel like the baby has been moving less or you don't get 10 movements in 2 hours try drinking some orange juice and laying on your left side. The coldness and sugar in the orange juice can stimulate movement and laying on your left increases blood flow to the baby. Count for an hour again and if you don't get to 4-5 kicks then call your doctor.
