Movement in my stomach NOT pregnant
So I'm a 28 year old mother of 3...Have been on the IUD for about 3 years..Only meds I am taking are Phentermine 37.5mg overall good healthy, Do get migraine headaches every now and again...Few months back was taking acne pills..

Ok so that is a little medical history on me..NOW, my problem starts....I am having MOVEMENT like alot of movement in my stomach...I mean it feels like a baby REALLY...I mean I have had some off and on fluttering in my stomach for months maybe even a year or so..But the movement I'm experiencing now is more of a slow controlled movement.. Like say a small baby rolling over in your stomach or shifting places.. Oh and right under my right side ribcage I have pressure.. Doesn't hurt just some pressure like a baby's foot pressing ever so softly..Then it will stop and little while later it's there again..

I've even when out and bought a cheap O pregnancy test...All though I just starting my period.. Took test NEGATIVE. When I lay down on the bed you can actually see where like the top part of my stomach will go flat then a little little ball form down on the bottom of my stomach under my belly button area.. I keep trying to ignore it and go on but WHAT THE CRAP IS IT.. or is it just that crap??

I called my mom over to feel my stomach.. As my husband thinks I am just overreacting because I have been wanting one more baby and he does not..Anyways,, Whatever it was, was not really moving.. I couldn't even feel it but I had just went from a laying position to a standing one..But my mom did notice how my stomach would deep in slightly in one area and kind of ball up in another area....

So could this be a tapeworm or IBS could I be pregnant and have my period and the test be wrong?? Oh yeah I have also been pregnant before and doctors labeled it an "ECTOPIC PREGNANCY" because my HCG levels where increasing I was having some bleeding and when they did the ultrasound they could not find the baby.. They continued to watch my HCG levels go up and did ultrasounds no baby in tube no baby to be found any where...Also have carried a baby (My son) to a little over 5 months then suddenly went into labor..Baby didnt make it..

Going crazy....Am I a paranoid..Gonna be 30 ok well 29 year old wanna have a baby women..Or is there a really cause for concern... We live next to Roswell New Mexico,, Where they say the aliens landed..So my mom calls me in the mornings now and says how's or alien doing??? Haha.. But I know without a doubt something is moving..Don't know if you can feel a tape worm....Maybe be some serious gastritis problems....

Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated as I have no insurance and really can't afford an ultrasound..

i would go to the doctors! it could be nothing, it could be psychological like ur husband thinks, or it could be some sort of benign mass if u say theres a ball like area and pressure. i dont know why that would cause a fluttering feeling.
a tape worm would probably cause weight loss?
do u have any other symptoms like weight loss or pain at all? u should defo get checked out.
if u were recently pregnant it might not show up on a test but since this has been ongoing for a while now i doubt that.
if u were pregntn before and bleeding but they couldnt find a baby, sounds like a miscarriage to me, but dont think thats relevant to this. unless theres something structurally wrong but that would have caused pain if eg something ruptured.
any firm lump/ball type firm area should be checkedout!

I have had problems non-stop with nexplanon, I freakin hate it, I bleed allll the time maybe have a couple weeks off then bleed more. I have felt phantom kicks before but I have NEVER seen movement. It seems many of us feel it on our right side. I saw movement tonight and my waist is 4 inches bigger than just a few months ago and I am the type that does not gain weight unless I work out. Alcohol and cafiene can affect the implant, both of which I partake regularly. Pregnancy tests come back negative, but I havent taken one in months. And scared too since the implant seems to mask results despite what drs say.

Hi I am 18. Ive been sexually active and I keep feeling almost the same thing as you all. I feel movement and fluttering in my lower stomach usually under my belly button but there are times that its above. I have no idea what it is..Ive bought pregnancy tests and even got tested in multiple hospitals. They all came up negative. About a year ago I was told that my fallopian tubes were too damaged and that I couldnt have kids. I am not on any type of birth control..I also havent gotten my period in months..all the tests came up negative so I have no idea whats going on..can anyone help?
