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

Anxiety: How high is your anxiety level? Do you have alternating constipation and diarrhea? Feeling movement in the lower abdomen may be your intestinal tract. If you want to be pregnant badly, this can be over interpreted. It can be irritable bowel syndrome but when stressed signals of normal stimuli make it to the brain and can get over interpreted. Try daily MiraLAX if constipated, good luck, . ...Read more

Get pregnancy test.: It would be too early to be feeling movement of a fetus, but if you're having changes and you are trying to get pregnant, then I would at least do a home pregnancy test, if not an actual blood test by your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

Not how it works: This is not in any way how pregnancy is diagnosed. If you have missed periods it is time for a pregnancy test. A pregnant female cannot feel a fluttering until well into the pregnancy. Doctors never guess when it comes to pregnancy. Please do a test. ...Read more

Bowel motility ??: If you notice the movement while you are at rest, it is probably your intestines. Your intestines are constantly in motion, and sometimes you can feel the sensation of movement inside your abdomen just because of the normal bowel activity. If you are feeling the movement only when you change position, it could indicate a mass in your abdomen or pelvis - in that case you should see your doctor. ...Read more
