Swelling may be bad: Retained air in the gut can certainly lead to bloating. However, a "hard" abdomen raises greater concern, such as fluid (ascites) in your abdomen or intestinal blockage. Ascites can be due to significant liver disease, infection, perforation of the gut, trauma to an organ with bleeding, or even cancer. Intestinal blockage, if present, risks rupture, peritonitis, death. Please get evaluated now. ...Read more

"Any : "any woman between 8 and 80 with abdominal pain is pregnant until proven otherwise!" that is drilled into us in training. Have you taken any home pregnancy tests?

Be patient, as it may take months before they pin down a diagnosis. ...Read more

Can check preg. test: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period.

If you are pregnant, it's important ot have support people in place. Best to you and be well ! ...Read more
