I feel movement under my left rib cage. As it moves I can see it stick out. Can I be pregnant even though my tubes are tied?

Possible: It is possible that you are pregnant. Every method of contraception has a failure rate including tubal ligation but, if you have been having regular periods it isn't likely. By the time you feel and see movement at the edge of your ribs, you are close to your due date. It is more likely that this is a GI issue.
