im gona ask her if these kicks could hav something to do wiv the cyst.





To reply to your post I don't think the cyst have anything to do with it. I had cyst and they are gone now and still feel the kicks..... most likely the kicks are arteries or veins that run through your stomach.

i had that too and i was wondering if i could be pregnant again so i asked my doctor and he said that it could just be my uterous contracting or could be a vein contracting and that we are just more sensitive to these movements in our stomach because of bearing a child. completly normal. =]

Most likely it is either a vein or arterie that you are feeling the kicks from. I feel them all the time too. My hubby is a EMT and that's what he tells me that it could be. It freaked me out though one time b/c I was like am I pregnant and didn't even know it..lol

I have them too. I actually think it may be gas that we never noticed before. Since having a baby in there I feel like we are so much more aware of everything. When I was preg I remember reading somewhere that 2nd time moms can feel baby movements much earlier than 1st timers because they are more aware of what to expect. It also comprared these movements to gas movements.

Every time if happens though- I stop and think - wow that seems familiar. It can almost mess with your head- thinking - could I be pregnant?!?!?
