Start with clear liquids and if tolerated, progress to soft, bland foods, such as toast, broth, apples, bananas, and rice. Avoid caffeine, fatty foods, and alcohol.

Feeling movements in stomach, sharp side pains, feel pressure pushing out in ribs, lower abdomen pain, pelvic pain. Had tubes tied 6yrs ago. Recently had neg urine test, neg pelvic utrsnd. Said uterus seems normal size. Could I still be pregnant?

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.

For the past few weeks I've been feeling some movement in my upper stomach, doesn't hurt, sometimes though I can even see the movements?

Intestines: Hi
In the upper middle stomach area you can sometimes see two things in individuals that are very thin. If it is a pulsatile movement, that is part of the movement of your aorta, which is a very large artery that runs vertically down the midline at that position. The second is intestinal contractions, which you will see almost ripple across the abdomen. Hope this helps ...Read more
