There is a pulse in my stomach, i can see my stomach moving up and down because of the pulse. Does this happen in pregnancy? Or is this my pulse?
Unlikely pregnancy: If you are thin, it is quite possible that the pulse you see is from your abdominal aorta, and it is very common to see in thin people. Considering your age, this is most likely the cause. If you develop other symptoms, however, such as pain, nausea, etc., or if this continues to concern you, then see your doctor to have it evaluated, as there could be other (rare in your age) causes. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
