I'm 8 months postpartum and feel phantom kicks all the time. And no, I'm not pregnant again. Any other moms swear they feel kicks long after they've given birth?

I felt those kicks for about 3-4m after birth but not that long. I'm sure it's possible though, everyone is different :)

Did she say you should go to therapy?? Lol it's normal. I have them sometimes. Not often or enough to scare me but I have felt little twitches that feel like first movements. They make me laugh because I think about carrying my daughter :) I kinda like it

That's rude. You don't need therapy for this. It completely normal. I was told it was a muscle spasm. I get them sometimes but when they start it's like a full blown kick session lol
