What are phantom flutters?

My sweet babe is 7 months old and I’ve had “phantom flutters” for about a month now. Today I swear I felt one on the outside while I had my arm relaxed next to my abdomen. I have had negative bloodwork so no pregnancy and not trying. Just curious if this is a common occurrence? Am I just crazy

Been almost 2 years since my last pregnancy and I still get movements. I’ve had my tubes tied and it still freaks me out :rofl:

I get them sometimes and my son is almost 2! Super common :relaxed:

I had my son 5 years ago and I still get them

I’ve had 5 and have always experienced fantom flutters. My youngest is almost 5 months and I get them, I got my tubes removed so I am 100% sure I can not naturally conceive. I was told it’s normal.

Not crazy. The human body is so mysterious and amazing.

I get phantom kicks and my youngest is gonna be 7 in June.

Yes!! It’s so weird… I’m menopausal and still feel them. :sweat:

My youngest is 10 months old and I sometimes feel movements.

My youngest is 3.5 and i still get them a couple times a week.

My daughter just turned 10m yesterday and I still feel them sometimes lol

It’s most likely gas. Lol

I have noticed since they removed my tubes after a tubal pregnancy I feel these a lot and especially last night when I was laying with my husband watching tv it was on my left side next to my ribs.

My son is 8 and I still every blue moon will get them.

Yes my youngest is 17 mos and I had her and her sister 14 mos apart. I still feel flutters. I’ve had 3 c sections as well so idk if that has anything to do with it, especially with the last two being so close.

My son is 16 months and I still have those. I think pregnancy is traumatic on a body and it’s probably muscle spasms :woman_shrugging:t3: I’m not an expert though lol

They are normal. I had looked them up. It is your stomach muscle spasming

I’ve had the same thing happen to me before. I could even feel them on the outside. I know I’m definitely not pregnant though :joy:

I get them still and my son is 5

Uterus going back to normal or trying

Maybe you need to fart :woman_shrugging:

I had them for probably a year after my son was born. 9 months with number two now so we’ll see
