Feeling movement, but not pregnant. LateOnLife 1 child; North Carolina 694 posts

I didnt really know how to title this, lol. But over the past couple of weeks i have been feeling little flutters and small sensations in my stomach that remind me of when Sofie would kick and roll a lot when i was pregnant with her. Then i noticed that actually, this was the time of year last year that i felt her first movements. It's kinda ironic. I know i am not pregnant, i have the IUD (which i love) and i test occasionally just in case. I just thought it was a little weird. Ive never felt these feelings OTHER than when i was pregnant.
has this happened to anyone? i actually kinda like it, and it almost gives me baby fever. Good thing i have the IUD, lmao.

Called phantom movements, they are very common for up to even a year after you give birth....Don't worry :)

I get it all the time! My youngest will be a year old next week!
Phantom kicks, but I don't know what it is exactly or what causes it, but I've heard that it happens to a lot of women, especially after having babies.

Phantom baby, or your intestinal parasites/tapeworm. Question: do you eat 4000 calories a day, but never seem to gain weight except in your belly? Do you feel hungry and kind of tired/sick all the time?
Let's hope it's phantom baby.
