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.

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

Well for the past 2 months, I have been feeling movement like fluttering in my stomach, can I be pregnant?

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

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

Intestines: You can check a pregnancy test to make sure you are not pregnant. If negative then pregnancy is excluded. The only thing that moves in your pelvis is your intestines. You could also schedule an exam to make sure you do not have a pelvic mass that you are feeling. ...Read more
