Disconnected?: Gas, stool, fluids, urine are inside of your body. That is much more likely what you are feeling. In my office, trying to calm you down i would ask: why would you take a pregnancy test if you had a period? You are not pregnant. A period proves that. A pregnant female does not feel a baby moving inside of her until the fourth month. If you doubt then test again.

A woman who is concerned she may be pregnant should be encouraged to run a pregnancy test no matter what her bleeding pattern is. Some women can have bleeding in early pregnancy that can be mistaken for a period.
