Hi, my daughter is 11 months and I still feel "phantom kicks". I am 99.99% sure I'm not pregnant so it can't be that. How long did they last for you?

About a year. Your uterus is contracting to get back to it's normal size so it feels like kicks.

well my youngest is 25 months and i still feel phantom kicks almost daily. Sometimes i can put my hand on my tummy and feel the little nudges. I dont know it is gas or nerve damage or what.

My only child is 6 and I still get them on occasion. They're not as frequent anymore though.

Sometimes I think hey up I'm sure that was a kick but then quickly remember it is just liquid and gas moving about in my intestines. It is an odd feeling of fluttering.

Until the second time I got pregnant. My son was only 7 months old when I got pregnant with my daughter. It's strange though, after my daughter was born I haven't had any phantom kicks. Maybe because I know I'm all done having children.
