Just that really, I won't be seeing mw for another 8 weeks (I'm 20 weeks) and last pregnancy I wasn't at all worried about it, but since reading sad stories I'd like to monitor kicks, although I've no idea how?

I saw my midwife yesterday for 24 week appointment and she advised that from about this time if there is change to normal movement pattern it should be checked.

yes my guidance notes say 24 weeks. Not to log them or anything just to get used to your babies pattern/routine so that if it slows or stops you'll notice it.
