throbbing in my stomach
wednesday night i was in the bed relaxing and all of a sudden the area rigth above my pubic hair, i got a throbbing feeling. it wasnt painful, it was like a giant nerve (like the size of my pointer finger) was throbbing. it did it like six times, and then stopped. i have never had this before and its NOT like im pregnant (or at least i dont think so)and the baby kicked even though thats kind of what it would have felt like i think. that was really weird to me and it freked me out i mean ive had nerves jump in my leg and arms and hands but never in my stomach and not like that. any help would be great.

Since you say you're not pregnant, I'm going to assume that you are indeed not pregnant.  Depending on where you are in your cycle, you could have ovulated.  Sometimes women feel it and sometimes they don't.  It also could have been a trapped 'gas' bubble, those can really hurt.  I say we need a little more info on your cycle, like when did you last get your AF.  Are you on the pill, Depo, do you have an IUD?  I need more. Sorry.

Are you skinny? the reason i ask, Im pretty thin myself and when i lay flat on my back I can feel my Vena Cava throbbing, that is a huge artery going strain down your abdomen. I can usually feel mine around my belly button. My husband just last night was teasing with the kids telling them it was a baby kicking, cuz you could even see it.I have been able to feel this since i was about 13, and my dr says its cuz im thin.

It was probably just a muscle spasm.

By heavy I'm assuming more than 40lbs overweight.  The weight can affect your cycles also.  I had a heavy spout where I didn't have a regular period for almost 5 months.  I had a few spotting occasions and then I thought for sure I was pregnant.  I would always test negative on hpts, then I went for several blood tests over the course of 3 months-all negative.  After no period, no pregnancy, the doc's did some tests and found out that my weight had caused a hormone problem.  They put me on BCP to get me to have a period, and it worked.  I lost about 30 pounds, got off the pill, and finally my periods came back.
