Henry was born well over 5 months ago. But I still feel the kicks.
A quick Google search is enough to convince me that Iâ€™m not alone. Lots of moms feel Phantom Baby Kicks (PBKs).
Mine kick in (hah) mostly at night when I lay in bed; this was always when it was easiest to feel Henry moving around inside of me. Now, I rest in bed and I swear on my life that I think a little baby is still kicking inside of me. Whether itâ€™s just gas or uterine spasms or my completely overactive imagination, who knows. But they feel SO REAL. I was actually was so convinced that I was pregnant again at one point that I found myself in the dark, staring at the ceiling, and counting back the weeks to when I got my IUD to see if there was ANY WAY that I could be pregnant and the baby large enough to kick me. (Answer: no â€“ this is not a coy way of saying Iâ€™m preggers with baby numero dos.)
Anyway, Iâ€™d love to know if anyone else experienced Phantom Baby Kicks. When did it go away?!
