Round, small hard belly bit like a bump and most of the early pregnancy symptoms came off period 3 days ago but felt like this before, am i pregnant?

Remember in health class when you learned that after a fetus is conceived it is not in any way connected to the mother's body through sharing blood or any other chemicals for nearly 14 days after conception? That any symptoms before that are not pregnancy? ...Read more

If your bmi is less than 25 then the problem may be weak abdominal muscles. Good luck! ...Read more
