    My son is 6 vaginal.all natural birth..and i still have phantom kicks..i have a feeling for some of us it will never go away

  2. Courtney

    Two c-sections…. Almost 8 years ago! They started a few years ago and continue. I can see and feel them with my hand! Husband had a vasectomy 6 years ago. Not painful or even annoying, just odd!

  3. Jamie

    I have these and my sons are 5 and 2. It defenitly is visible to the eye and can feel with the hand. Needless to say it completly freaked me out. glad to know there are others with the same issue

  4. My youngest is two and I just started getting these but morning sickness well really through out the day! This is really helpful as I’ve had a tubal ligation 2 years ago…I really thought I was crazy! I’ve bugged my husband like crazy he thinks I’m nuts..but I’ve had lots of symptoms all the way to producing milk.I’m hoping phantom kicks go away soon

  5. esta

    My youngest just is 15 and I am having the same symptoms

  6. My children are 4 and 19 months. Both vaginal deliveries. I have a two week period cycle right now (thanks birth control) and am as you see, on birth control. I’ve had phantom kicks before, right before we got pregnant the second time. That made me want a baby then. Now I have phantom kicks and can literally see my belly twitch out like a kick. I know I’m not pregnant and I don’t really want to be pregnant again this soon. I’m still going to test because it’s been three days this time and if I was pregnant I’d want the BC out. But yeah, it happens.

    Yes glad to know I’m not alone. But I don’t wish these on anyone. They are annoying. They just started back up. I’ve been dealing with this off and on for years. I’m 32 my son is 5. I need to get to my o.b. or doctor so at least they can get it on file. It’s been a while since the kicks have come on. God willing they will stop soon.

  8. have never been pregnant and after 5negative pregnancy test I finally declared ‘enough is enough’. I have always been interested in pregnancy ever since I was 1 and know the INS and outs of pregnancy week by week. For the last 6 years I have been trying to get pregnant with no success. I broke up with my partner 4months against didn’t have children on the brain, I wanted a fresh new single like only to feel flattering in my lower abdominal 2 and half months later. I took a pregnancy test to be sure, in fact 2, both came out negative, I went To my doctor who did a pregnancy test, twice, still negative. I confided in my mother who told me to squeeze my breast like I was getting ready to breast feed and tell her what comes out, colostrum came out, I didn’t even know that was possible at this stage. The feeling progressed from flatters to feelings of being kicked, and some kind of pressure on my back that doesn’t stay for long. I thought I was going insane. I still don’t know what’s going on with me, they are more frequent now. Help!!!?

    I’m so glad i found this. I have been pregnant 3 years in a row. All failed both control methods. They finally gave me that 3 year implant in ny arm (because supposedly it’s the most effective) less than a year ago after an emergency c-section. Over the past 3 days I’ve felt this. It comes and goes. Usually a little after i eat a meal or drink a soda. It totally freaks me out to the point where I’ve taken 3 test to be she that little blue line doesn’t show up. It’s insane and i dont like it. I felt like I was going crazy. I didn’t want to tell anyone about it so i looked it up myself.

    I know how you feel. Mine stopped months ago and came back in the last week and 1/2. It still bugs me out despite my period because they feel so darned real. If you have been pregnant before it really is scary because it does feel like the real deal. Early on baby kicks. If you haven’t been preggo, I can see how it would make a woman totally confused also, lol. It’s a very strange thing. Mine are happening several times a day again. I can feel and see them. It’s wacky! I guess it will eventually fade away again and possibly reoccur. I obviously was NOT pregnant.

    I told my husband a few days back, and he said he gets like feelings at times also, so I guess if he is not pregnant, nor could I be, HA HA. It’s just not a very talked about issue. It can make you feel like you are going crazy, hence why i wanted to share my story.

    Thanks for sharing yours :).

    I have Mirena and I’ve taken 2 tests to make sure but I am not pregnant. I have no desire to be pregnant. In fact I am happy that we are done, yet my husband will not get fixed. I have had phantom kicks all day today and they are driving me crazy. I’m happy to find this page along with posts of others. Which is why I decided to reply so the next person will see yet another person experiencing them. My kids are 9,6, and 5.

    I was experianicing phantom kicks after my first miscarriage. I didnt know how it was possible , or why it even was happnening. I asked my husband what he thought about it, and he decided on a doctors visit. Thr doctor said it was common in women after kids.

    I’m glad I found this site cause I seriously thought I was going crazy? Lol I’ve been feeling kicks and I thought maybe I was pregnant… I’ve been pregnant 3 times so, I thought maybe I was more sensitive to movement early in my pregnancy… But I took a pregnancy test and of course it was negative. Now, I’m thinking what the heck is going on? I know it’s not gas, or butterfly’s… So from what I understand, it sounds like maybe “secretly” I want to be pregnant! idk… Lol do I secretly want a girl? I think I’ll leave it in Gods hands!

    Thank you so much for writing this. I am so happy I found it. Was almost in tears this morning when I felt some serious movement in my tummy. As mum of 2 teenagers and twin toddlers the last thing I want is another pregnancy. I know I can’t be pregnant but I really did think I was going crazy this morning. Again THANK YOU 🙂 🙂 🙂

  19. This just started happening to me. I shared my story on my blog because I was so freaked out by it and wanted to know if i was alone. Good to see i am not crazy.

    So I found out I was prego 4 months ago… And I went to the hospital Aug 16, 2016 because I felt like something was wrong…. and they told me there was no baby… and that if I hadn’t been in when I was 8 weeks they would have never thought I was prego and I didn’t bleed or cramp or anything. The ultrasound tech was floored but I still feel kicks…. even tho I’ve seen proof there is nothing in there.

  21. Kristen Fata

    So glad I researched this! I thought I was going crazy! My OB even did a test just one week ago, but still feel the “kicks”. Time to take a breath!

    I’m 39. One child who is 5. Normal delivery. This last year is the first time I’ve experienced ghost kicks with that I also have the round ligament pain ( RLP ongoing for years) so I don’t now if it’s my hormones or what. But it freaks me out and I have to stop and track my cycle. Good to know I’m not alone. I normally don’t comment but I wanted others to know that they are not alone ,
