The : The symptoms of pregnancy can start once implantation occurs. This typically happens about 8-10 days after ovulation. Based on your lmp of 8/30/11, you likely ovulated on or around 10/14/11, if in fact you conceived, then the timing for pregnancy symptoms is consistent. There are early prediction pregnancy tests in stores that can predict pregnancy a week before your next period is due. I suggest you take one to be sure, or you can always follow up with your primary care provider or gynecologist for testing. Good luck! ...Read more

Side effects of med?: Your medication list suggests a couple of medications, typically not used here in US, that can have gastrointestinal side effects. While dromperidone should increase movement through the GI tract, I believe it is possible you could be having an adverse reaction to it. I would hold that medication for a day or two & see how you feel. During this time you could try simple antacids, i.e. Tums/Maalox ...Read more

Low gurgling noises in the uterus area be early pregnancy? (Not hungry and went to the bathroom) 2 negative test results but only 1-1/2 week since O

My stomach is growling.. Im 10 weeks im not hungry. What does this means.. Is it the baby or do i need to eat?

Baby's sake: You may not feel hungry due to the pregnancy symptoms, however it's important that you do actually try to eat for the baby's sake because it needs your nutrients to grow and mature properly in the uterus through the placenta. The growling is likely your stomach telling you you still need to eat even though you don't feel like it. The body has a funny way of telling us what we need sometimes. ...Read more

Is it normal when your stomach growl, even if your not hungry? Is there any treatment to it?

Growling can be OK: Hi Deborah, By growling I assume you mean your stomach makes bubbling, gurgling sounds? Are these painful or have your eating habits changed? Any vomiting or diarrhea? If not, and its only 'growling' then it may not be a matter to worry about. Your intestines are supposed to be doing their job of digesting. But if you have any of the above symptoms then see your doctor. ...Read more

Dull Pain in middle of stomach,  and right side. Not hungry until late afternoon. Stomach is active with growls and noises. Bloated stomach. Why??

IBS? Ulcer?: The location of your pain isn't classic but might be caused by an ulcer or other inflammation of your stomach such as gastritis. Gall bladder discomfort could also cause this.
