I think it is normal.

my son is 5 and I felt it alot - almost like the second baby never was born. Not sure what it is though.

I am pregnany again (14wk3days) and I still have the feeling (but this time there is really a baby there BUT I shouldnt be feeling this one yet!

I think it is normal. I also feel movement every now and then and my baby is 16 weeks old. With my first I felt very pronounced movement after delivery for about a month. I am sure it has to do with your organs moving back into their original place.

I remember that, and I am pretty sure that it's intestinal.

I am pretty sure it's gas etc in the intestines causing it, but also get a feeling reminescent of a baby moving inside sometimes (nearly 4 years after my last baby) it those rolling, popping feelings. I actually quite like it :)

My son is 5 1/2 months old now and I know what you mean. I thought I'd fallen pregnant again! :-) I can't explain it, though... I'd like to know what everyone else thinks?

Hi there,

I would say its normal if it was like a week or so after giving birth as your stomach and uterus is all going back to normal, but six months is a bit hectic.
Its now been 7 months since i gave birth and i often feel movement in my tummy but not the same as baby in tummy!!!
