but for the past few days, I could swear I am feeling a baby moving around once in awhile
maybe everything is just moving back into place?

Wow, that would be a strange feeling. My friend keeps saying that too and isn't pregnant. You're probably right, maybe everything is still shrinking back in place.

Send some of those kick vibes my way. I want to feel this baby move darn it!

Oh man, I had phantom movements SO BADLY after Erin. It actually started at 5-6 months after she was born and continued right up until I got pregnant again. I got used to it, but at first it really weirded me out!

i had them over a year after DD was born!
i never did find a reason why i was still getting them but although strange, they are not painful.

I had one of my nurses talk to me about phantom movement after I delivered Cora, before I left the hospital. Apparently she didn't want me to be really upset by it if it happened, which was nice of her. I never really felt it after Cora though. Maybe because I got pregnant again so quickly?

alright, i am not crazy. i have been having 'phantom kicks' too - that's even what i've been calling them, but i wasn't sure what was going on. figured things were still changing in there.

I've never heard of that before. I'm glad to know about it now so if it happens to me it might not freak me out so much. I too am SO anxious to feel this baby inside me. There have been a couple times when I thought I felt something, but the location just didn't seem to be the right place, so I've chalked it up to gas, and various other things.

I remember feeling those after Makenna was born! I never knew anybody else to experience it but I'm glad to know I'm not the only one.
