Hello, I am currently experiencing these "phantom fetal movements". I've been feeling these types of things for some time now and I have to say I can't believe that it's food or gas for that matter. Food doesn't hit back. When I touch it I feel a lump throb back. I very distinct lump. It doesn't shift or move in a pattern of any kind. It's like a throbbing. And it throbs so hard that my whole stomach shakes. My husband felt it with his own hands and now he wants me to take a pregnancy test... All I can think is it could POSSIBLY be the scar tissue from both of my c-sec that is throbbing because it is in that area.View Thread
