If you have not been getting the Depo shot every 3 months, you are not protected from pregnancy. 6 months without a period in a healthy female with no health conditions may indicate pregnancy. Take a pregnancy test ASAP. The "popping" feeling may be the baby moving. The enlarging stomach may be the pregnant uterus growing.
