Yes, it is totally weird! I’ve heard it can be muscle spasms as everything shrinks back down. But I swear it felt just like baby kicks.

Yes, still get them occasionally. I’ve had two babies. It is also extremely common in women who have had a c-section, since it can take up to a year for everything to move back into place. It feels exactly like baby movement to me. Just one of those things that you will have to adjust to.

I’ve had a hysterectomy and I think that way sometimes too!  I think it’s gas. 🙁

My friend told me that she could feel her organs shifting downward and settling for weeks and it freaked her out.

That is too funny, I never thought that this might happen after pregnancy! Good to know, so that I won’t be too freaked out if it happens!

I had those shortly after my sons were born. I just thought it was all in my mind. My sons were born at 28 weeks and figured I was having a hard time accepting that I was no longer pregnant.

@Cory_loves_this_girl:  Yes!! My baby is 17wks and sometimes gas bubbles feel exactly like when she would kick me! Freaked me out the first couple times! Lol

What’s funny was when I was pregnant and people would say kicks felt like gas bubbles I was like… Hummm… No! Hahaha but now I know what they mean! And it feels exactly the same!!
