In brief: Bowels

I hate to assume.
..But the nature of this question indicates you are not pregnant? A kicking sensation may be precipitated by movement of the bowels...A sharp peristaltic movement or feeling fluids moving could mimic "kicking".Beyond the typically medical..There is evidence that empathic sensations do occur between people as well.
