The : The answer is simple. Take a pregnancy test. If you are pregnant see your doctor right away to confirm your dates and to start your prenatal care. If you are not pregnant then you need to be evaluated for your symptoms. You may be dealing with uterine fibroids (benign tumors of the uterus) which can cause your stomach to feel hard. Lastly, irregular periods can be due to hormonal imbalances, stress/anxiety, weight fluctuations, etc. Best of luck.
