Fat vs pregnant vs: Dropsy is an old term for edema. Pregnant women can get edema from the pressure of fetus on lower extremity venous drainage.

I look like i'm pregnant but i'm just fat. I don't fill out like every one else. My stomach is also hard but i'm not prego. What's wrong?
Brittany, the Depo: Isnt helping.Likewise, you may have a tendency toward central obesity. If strong family hx of type 2 diabetes, you may have elevated insulin. This makes it hard to lose weight and u feel weak when u don't have sugar, which is the enemy. Low dose metformin can help. Another medicine called topirimate, for migraines, at 50 mg at night can help, as can buproprion for mood. Watch sugar in liquid. ...Read more
Hi my stomache has been swelling for about a year I thought I was just putting on wieght however I have no fat?
I'm not pregnant, and I have no pain?
Difficult Problem: First of all U must see internist. I suggest general blood tests of well being, and XRAY of abdomen (if not pregnant) and perhaps an abdominal ultrasound (safe with Pregnancy) to see what is going on. Fat is certainly still in differential, but perhaps the food you eat are gaseous. I would see internist right away. Have you had a pregnancy test? ...Read more
Wouldn't recommend: I wouldn't recommend it. You are going to get bigger around the waist. If you are condo earned about weight gain in pregnancy, then read about good nutrition.

Im 25 weeks 1 day pregnant and I just look fat not pregnant but my doctor says everything is ok...is it normal that I look this way When will I show?
Am i pregnant? I don't really know ifi am i took two test and they both came out negative but i don't believe em my stomach is getting bigger I don't know if im just getting fat or what but I've had all the symtoms an i had unprocted sex when i was ovulat
I : I believe you are stating that you had unproducted sex and had your period about one and a half weeks later than expected. You have taken two pregnancy tests and both were negative. On the face of things, from what you are describing you are likely not pregnant. It you had a normal period, that is usually a sign that you are not pregnant. However, some women do have some spotting of blood when pregnant at the time of implantation. So the first question is : did you have a fairly normal period despite the fact that it was late. The second question is related to when you took your pregnancy test. For most urine pregnancy tests, you would take them when you missed your period or possibly a week after your missed period. If you took the pregnancy tests before your period was due, the HCG that is measured by the test might not be high enough to trigger a positive result. Even if you took the pregnancy tests right when your period was due, if you did them one right after the other - i.e., no wait time inbetween, it may not have given the HCG enough time to rise between tests. I hope you are tracking. O.K., here is my next question- why is a 16 year old having sex? You are far too young for this. Second, if you do have sexual intercourse, why aren't you using protection? I imagine you are very worried right now, if you didn't have sex in the first place you wouldn't be feeling this way. I do not know why your kitten is attracted to your stomach. Possible pregnancy symptoms: lack of a period, breast tenderness and swelling, nausea, feeling tired, urinating more often, possible mild cramping, slight abdominal enlargement etc. ...Read more

My 20 year old daughter is considering a tummy tuck. How will this effect her when she gets pregnant? She lost around 30 - 40 lbs over the past few years. She has a little excess skin and fat that just won't go away no matter how hard she exercises. I
Hard to Know: Although your daughter's goals are understandable after significant weight loss, tummy tuck surgery may be premature. the “ideal” patient for tummy tuck surgery has completed pregnancies, is psycho socially/emotionally/financially stable, has an excellent social support system surrounding him/her, is capable of arranging enough recovery time and who has reached a long-term stable weight. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I've had sex 2 weeks ago period should be tomorrow , scared I could be pregnant , no symtoms just tummy a bit fat , could I be pregnant ?
Maybe: Yes you could be pregnant but I would recommend give it a few more days to see if the period starts and if it does you are not pregnant, if it doesnt start check with a pregnancy test. If negative I would still repeat the pregnancy test after another week. Remember, my advice is limited to the info I have so nothing like checking with your own gyn or family doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Stomach is growing everyday by the end of the day i look about 6 months pregnant. I am on the pill & have had regular periods? Is it just fat? Preg?
Not Preg: If you are on the pill and having regular periods then you cannot be pregnant. Pregnancy cannot happen while you are still having periods. Regarding you stomach and possible weight gain, I believe you should discuss this issue with both your physician and with a dietitian so that they can come up with a plan to help you loss weight. A dietitian can spend time with you to help individualize a plan. ...Read more
