My son is 4 and I still get that. To the point where if I put my hand on the spot I can feel the twitching.

After you give birth your uterus is changing. It shrinks every day after birth by 3 finger breaths and everything within settles back now. I think experiencing a shifting so to speak if pretty average. Just think, your uterus has gone from being the size of a watermelon to the side of a lemon in weeks. That means a lot of changing is going on in there. :) No worries, totally ok!

I thought I was the only one. At one point I thought I was pregnant again. Glad to know that it's just phantom kicks

I have an almost three year old and a eight month old and I still have that movement almost every other day. Its weird but I am glad that it happens to others.

It's so weird, my son is now 6 months and I'm worrying I'm pregnant because I feel movements. but I got my period so..

is this to far away from birth to be felling these movements you girls are mentioning?

I've been having the same thing! I'm pretty sure it's just our muscles going back to normal.

i felt that up until my son was almost a year n a half. but i believe its normal. its your uterus contracting back down to its regular size. remember it went from like a marble to a watermelon, so it takes some time.

My son is 20 months and I still feel weird movements in my belly which I know is just my stomach but I think from being pregnant and feeling the baby inside me and feeling him that I pay a lot more attention to that kind of stuff now. It's really weird though, lol

LOL I will never forget I had been home 2 days and I thought something kicked! I almost peed myself. Its the uterus and the stomach muscles contracting.
