I am a grown woman with two children. I'm not a nut job. However, despite not actively trying to get pregnant... and despite having regular, proper periods (last one has just ended)...and despite getting a BFN when my last period was a few days late....I keep feeling funny little movements like you do when you're pregnant.

I am not imagining it. I swear it.

It's starting to freak me out...

have you eaten any shellfish recently... maybe they were still alive when you ate them ! shock

yeh i get that now and then, it's just wind i think.
i reckon you always get it when you have wind, but until you have had children you never know much much like baby movements it is, and then you notice it a lot moe

Persephoponce Thu 24-Sep-09 15:44:44

No! grin hmm grin

I keep thinking 'it must be wind', but sometimes I feel a proper little movement, like a tiny kick, and then spend the next hour asking myself if I really felt it....

I can't be the only person in the world to ever have felt this...can I?

PinkTulips Thu 24-Sep-09 15:45:03

wind?

the digestive tract gets a bit looser and saggier after the stain of pregnancy bending it out of shape (and kicking it repeatedly) and gases can feel alot more bubbly and popping.

i've found since having ds2 it's gotten very bad indeed, feels like somethings crawling around in there sometimes shockblush

Persephoponce Thu 24-Sep-09 15:45:29

Just saw your post thisisyesterday...phew...that's a relief...so not just me, then!

people can still get periods while pregnant, although have no idea what BFN is, why don't you do a test?

belgo Thu 24-Sep-09 15:46:44

That's quite normal! I still felt 'kicking' for a good few months after giving birth to my third child. I don't feel it anymore now though - ds is nearly 1 year old.

I think it's to do with the why the blood circulation changes during pregnancy.

TitsalinaBumsquash Thu 24-Sep-09 15:47:14

It is wind, i asked my doctor. blush

Apparently after having children you becoe in tune to any movements in your womb area, tiny little bubbles of air float about and pop making a baby flutter feeling, its wierd isnt it.

cookielove Thu 24-Sep-09 15:47:30

oh i see now, hmmm never mind

TheMightyToosh Thu 24-Sep-09 15:48:56

No, you are not alone. I felt similar things when definitely not pregnant.

But, I only started feeling it after my first baby was born, never before.

So I wonder if it is something that happens after you've had a baby, maybe you grow new nerves down there or something so that things you wouldn't have felt (such as wind passing through there) you do feel now.

But know what you mean - exactly like little kicks grin

TheMightyToosh Thu 24-Sep-09 15:49:40

Oh, sorry Titsalina - I just read your post blush - so I was sort of on the right tracks then grin

Yes, but if they are definite little kicks, not flutters or early-movement-sort-of-movements, you still may be pregnant. Period while preggers is def possible and the tests will stop showing a pos after a while because the early preg hormone which the test is for is replaced after a while (def by the time you have movement) with other hormones the test doesn't react to.
Off to the gyn with you. :-)

I sometimes get this, only really started after my 2nd was born almost 3 years ago. I did 3 negative pregnancy tests and am definitely not expecting unless I am having the longest pregnancy in history!

Comma2 Thu 24-Sep-09 17:57:14

Well then, to say it with Kenneth Graham: the doctor will tell you that you are crazy, and that will cheer you up.

YouLukaStunning Thu 24-Sep-09 18:02:09

You're not the only weird one. Odd though grin

YouLukaStunning Thu 24-Sep-09 18:05:24

That sounds rude doesn't it. What I meant to say was that I also have these feelings when I am not pregnant. Having had 6 pregnancies I'm always amazed with myself that I can misinterpret the feelings and convince myself that they could be a pregnancy. I should know by now how baby movements feel...?

It makes me feel weird anyway.

Persephoponce Fri 25-Sep-09 19:09:54

Just thought I should all let you know that I am around 16 weeks pregnant. Hmph.

MrsHappy Fri 25-Sep-09 19:11:33

Holy crap. That must have been a shock.

Are you pleased?

honeyapple Fri 25-Sep-09 19:12:44

blimey! congrats?

YouLukaStunning Fri 25-Sep-09 19:21:56

Wow!!!!!

Hope you are managing to get your head around your news easily. What a shock smile

HumphreyCobbler Fri 25-Sep-09 19:27:14

That is the most dramatic turn of events on a thread...

BertieBotts Fri 25-Sep-09 19:32:14

Congratulations! ?
