When will the phantom kicks go away?

I had my daughter 4 months ago and I've been having phantom kicks almost everyday since. Any idea on when they'll subside?

  • my kid is two years old and every now and then I feel a movement. It makes me want to go get a pregnancy test lol. They'll go away soon, but I don't know if there ever fully gone.

  • It is probably just gas. I still feel like a baby is kicking me in there. And it has been 25 years sense I had a baby.

  • I have yet to have them go away. My first baby was 10 months old when I got pregnant the 2nd time. My 2nd baby was 10 months old when I got pregnant the third and my 3rd baby is now only 7 weeks old. I just know at 10 months post partum I still got them a lot.
