Phantom kicks.......constantly??


Ok i didnt know where to put this so here goes..........
I have in the past had some of those phantom kick sensations maybe 3-4 times max and that was over 2 months ago.
For the last 2 days i have been getting flutterings constantly, especially when drinking coffee and cold drinks etc which is what i got when i was carrying Tabs.
Tabs is 8 months old now and was wondering if anyone else has had it constantly for days and how long after having your LO's?
Im gonna get a test tomorrow just to be certain, but it is definitely freaking me out now.

Is there any chance that you could be pregnant?

Phantom kicks can happen post natal, and are usually down to the uterus contracting after birth. Not sure what would cause them so late on though.

Your uterus can take months to finish contracting... remember it took almost 10 months to stretch that much, and its a muscle, so it takes a long time to tone back up... Coffee causes vasodilation which increases your blood flow and circulation which could cause more when your having coffee!

funny you mention this, I thought I was going crazy with my phantom braxton hicks!!!!!

I still have loads of phantom kicks... Phantom movements too like when Josh use to go from one side of my belly to the other. I tested the other day because I thought I was going nuts... Well I'm not pregnant and I am probably going nuts yes !!
