Henry was born well over 5 months ago. But I still feel the kicks.
A quick Google search is enough to convince me that I’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 it’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 – this is not a coy way of saying I’m preggers with baby numero dos.)
Anyway, I’d love to know if anyone else experienced Phantom Baby Kicks. When did it go away?!
I’ve never heard of this phenomenon! Strange! 🙂
