felt flutters shortly after having a baby.

Okay, so I had my son 3 months ago. A month ago a little before I got my period I kept feeling flutters like I did with my son (first time at 8 weeks) but like I said I got my period. It was my first period since I stopped bleeding...which I bled for about 6 weeks on/off. So I got it on Nov. 6th and it was a regular period, usual flow and days that I can remember..lol I should be due in another week or so but I'm still feeling flutters in the same area I felt my son and it's freaking me out. I took two tests last time before my last period and they were both negative. I don't want to keep wasting money on tests. So has anyone else experienced this?? Please help!! :(

Yeah they're phantom kicks. Some people have them for a long time after pregnancy.
