I keep feeling fluttering in my uterus, like early baby movement, but I am not pregnant. I wonder how normal this is postpartum and if it means my uterus is preparing for a period? Anyone else feel this?

I don't know how "normal" it is, but I know I've had it for years.  I think, probably, that there are just a lot of movements that you got in tune with while pregnant so once you've learned to recognize them you keep noticing them.  I haven't been pregnant for over 10 years and every once in a while I will still get something that feels like baby movement.  Of course, it's always in a place where it would be at least 2nd trimester movement, so I *know* that's not what it is!

 

I think it is pretty common, though.  I've heard many people joke about it!

Thanks for replying! It's such a crazy thing to feel, I'm glad to know I'm not alone in it. I wonder if it's from digestion or something else?

Same thing with me. I took a pregnancy test to make sure, and I wasn't pregnant. Guess it's just one of those things.
