phantom kicks...

So, I'm wondering if I'm going to be looked at as if I'm loopy, but sometimes I still feel kicks in my tummy~ just like when I was pregnant with Lily. The kicks don't happen often, but they make my heart stop when they happen, because it seems as if it's one more of nature's cruel jokes. Like when my milk came in, but I didn't have a baby to feed.

I've always heard that people that have had limbs amputated will feel phantom pains. I suppose these phantom kicks are just maybe a mind-playing trick that happens when a baby leaves your body too soon? Or do all pregnant women feel this at the end of their pregnancies?

So many quesions! Not many answers...

It is unfair. I thought the milk coming in but no baby to feed was icing on the cake for me. I'm sorry you still get those terribly sad reminders. =( Hugs.

I've heard of that, but I didn't have it. Still, every time I feel my stomach growl I pause for a second before I realize that nope, it's not Ada.

Its been just over two months since I had Kenner and I feel them still! I also felt that when my milk came in I could never go through anything else like that, until I was still feeling the phantom kicks!

I feel them, too. It's the most awful reminder, because you're still so used to being pregnant, and sometimes you've half-forgotten you're not anymore.
