Pregnancy concern: It is certainly possible that you could be pregnant, but it is highly unlikely that the movement you are feeling is movement from a baby as that isn't felt until 16-19 weeks. The shorter, lighter may have really been implantation bleeding from the embryo attaching itself to the inside of the womb. If you do not start you period 4 weeks after that lighter period, be sure to take a pregnancy test. ...Read more

Unlikely: If you have doubts, you may do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

Therefore a further evaluation with your physician would be appropriate to evaluate the pelvis and the gastrointestinal tract ...Read more

Psychological: First, as a physician I am going to speak very frankly to you.

In this day and time where obstetrics can save women and baby's from most of the common problems that plague pregnancy makes not seeing an OB nearly a crime.
Second, if you doubt the test go see an ob. ...Read more
