Stop eating!: Just kidding. See your doctor. You likely have an imbalance of intestinal bacteria, which can easily occur from dietary changes or the use of antibiotics. Eat yogurt or drink buttermilk three times daily, and take a probiotic with at least a billion organisms twice daily. If this doesn't solve your problem within 2 weeks, you have more serious issues that need complete evaluation by your doctor.

Not usually: It depends on how thin you are and even if you are not showing, pregnancy symptoms of bloating and fulllness of the abdomen and GI system can make pregnant women feel very full and make clothing fit more tightly.

Linea negra (normal): This is normal - there is a line of connective tissue down the middle of the tummy, called the linea alba ("white line" in latin) when we are not pregnant. It becomes darker when it gets stretched during pregnancy, and is then called the linea negra ("black line"). Sometimes it can be seen down the whole belly, sometimes just at the navel. The darkness will fade again after the baby is born.

Can do a preg. test: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An ob-gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms.

Probably intestines: The intestines are very active. They move around, cause fluttery sensations and sounds too. That's what i think you have been experiencing.

If you're fertile...: ...And have been having unprotected intercourse, then the answer is of course yes. A simple home pregnancy test may reassure you either way. Of course, the movement of gut contents may be the culprit here too.
