Like normal: When you first become pregnant you may feel nauseated or bloated but the stomach itself would not feel different as the size of the pregnancy is microscopic. If you think you might be pregnant check then check a home pregnancy test. They are cheap, reliable and available at any pharmacy.

Something else moves: For non-pregnant women, things that move in the tummy may be the intestines. The bladder and the uterus are made of muscle, but their contractions are usually some cramps or tightening. A primary care doctor can examine and talk with the patient to see what exactly the movement feels like. It may be an illness or disorder, or it may even be normal. An ultrasound scan and an ob/gyn visit can help.

Tums, prevacid (lansoprazole): Tums is known to be safe, and Prevacid (lansoprazole) is category b and thus it is also safe. So, you can try some to see if you will get relief. Since you are pregnant, follow up with doc soon if you don't get relief. Congrat on pregnancy and good luck.

It depends: Women may start to "show" the pregnancy at different times. It depends on the woman's body type, her usual abdomen size, and amount of body fat as well as how fast the baby is growing. It is also different when there are twins or more babies. Continue to see your doctor regularly to make sure it is going well.
