Does anyone else get "phantom kicks?"

I know I am not pregnant because I just started my period and I'm on birth control, but for the last couple months I get these movements in my belly and pelvic area. They feel like it used to feel when my baby would kick when I was pregnant! I loved being pregnant and the way it felt when the babies kicked so maybe I'm just missing it and that's where it is coming from, IDK. Does this happen to anyone else?

  • It can travel. When we were teens, my sis had such pain in her chest, she thought she was having a heart attack. My parents took her to the emergency room. A couple of hundred dollars later, it was just gas. They gave her Mylanta and she felt better.
