I may sound like a crazy women but I am always feeling little flutters, or movement in my stomach. My daughter is 19 months now & I am positive I am not pregnant again. It's been happening for about a year now! I researched & found out they were called "phantom kicks". Anyone else have this happen or know anything about it?

I experience this all the time. Just assume it's gas, cuz there's no way I'm pregnant. Lol but, it feels so much like a baby kicking, it's crazy.

Weird but I thought this was happening. I found it was my mind playing tricks because I desperately missed those kicks, and also my stomach ACTUALLY MOVES!!! When I'm digesting. Lol weird huh? šŸ˜ but it went away after the first few weeks.

Yep... I could actually record my belly kicking on video, it was so obvious!! I was so freaked out.. It wasn't just flutters it was like I'm 8 months pregnant!! It did all the things babies do in your belly, kicks on the right and left side , waves fast kicks slow kicks.. It was really freaky , I mean I still want more babies just now right now!!!
