Phantom Kicks

It's been two months since I lost my son. Today I started feeling phantom kicks. I should still be pregnant and I'm just feeling sad and cheated right now.

A friend of mine gave birth this morning. It's a tough day.

I'm so sorry...It is so hard to get close to your due date. Just know we are all thinking of you and we are still here staying positive just like you will too! I remember feeling phantom kicks too and it felt like a terrible trick to play on someone who is grieving over such a loss. You will get through this ;0) Stay strong! ;0)

Oh my goodness, I thought I was going crazy when I experienced the same thing several months after loosing my daughter. It will be a year this September. I remember when I felt them I just stopped in my tracks and started crying. I still should have been pregnant with her when I felt them. I didn't know if anyone else had experienced that before. Good to know someone else has also!

I should still be pregnant too Jasmin. :( I feel cheated about missing out on the rest of my pregnancy (and about so many millions of other things of course). I was feeling some phantom kicks yesterday and thought "I better not post about that on the PE forum or they'll think I'm kee-razy!" Glad to know I'm not!

The kicking is such an intimate thing we share with out babies. It's hard, to say the least. Today is a better day. But I really do wish I was still pregnant. He was special. They all were.

So sorry to hear. That is a very rough day. I went thru the same things with my very close friends having babies very close to me delivering and during my original due date (i delivered 15 weeks early). I felt phantom kicks for close to 5 months or even longer. At 1st they worried me and got me very sad, then I started thinking of them as my Angels way of telling me he was still there with me and was protecting me.
