Could i be pregnant I have been having sharp pains in abdomen feeling neasus, sleeping bloated. I am on Depo-Provera but my last shot was 2 weeks late

If : If you were late on Depo-Provera then there is a chance that you could have gotten pregnant. The odds of this occurring are not very high but there is a chance. If you missed a period you should definitely take a pregnancy test. If your periods are abnormal due to Depo-Provera then you may have to see your doctor for blood testing. Your symptoms could be due to gas, upset stomach, mild case of food poisoning etc.
Best of luck. ...Read more

7 weeks pregnant, feel bloated and stretched out why? Is it normal to feel some pressure on lower abdomen once in a while?

7 weeks pregnant, feel bloated and stretched out why? Is it normal to feel some pressure on lower abdomen once in a while?

Yes: Normal to feel everything that you are feeling. The hormones of pregnancy are causing this, and some of it is due to anatomic changes that are occurring in our pelvis as well. Increased blood flow and increased hormones causing your bowel to slow down and become gassier (bloated). Good luck! ...Read more

I'm currently 115 pds and just found out I'm pregnant. I look bloated but wondering what week will my abdomen start feeling hard? I'm showing already

Thin preggos!: JeanineH-first, Congratulations! Generally the uterus is at the belly button at 20 weeks, so this is when your belly will start "feeling harder". Your having bloating right now from all of the hormones you are secreting. When you are ready to have your baby, your uterus sits right under your breastbone. That's when your belly feels really hard! Good luck! ...Read more

My stomach is tight and bloated I feel especially full after I eat I have no pain at all. My wbc is normal as well as I've went to the ER to get check?

ER not the place: to go for evaluation of something like this. You need to see a family doc, but first keep a diary of everything you eat, how soon this happens, how long it lasts, what relieves it, and any other symptoms you may have as well as your weight. Try eating very small meals very frequently and of course avoid any food or drink (especially gas producing ones) that cause this to happen. Good luck! ...Read more
