The longer the fast the more distended the gall bladder. Food ingestion causes gb to contract. If symptomatic hida study would determine gall bladder function.

Have dull pain in right testicle & dull pain or tightness in area from testicle to lower abdomen area. Have had this for roughly 2 wks and never had?

Is R testicle harder: If right testicle feels rock hard relative to left one or is tender when you pal pâté it, you need to see a doctor. Could be anything from infection, inflammation, cancer, or just a cyst or muscle ache after working out (the latter wouldn't last 2 weeks, however). As this is persistent, you need to get a physical exam. If it already got better on its own and you are back to normal, you are ok

I am 14 wks 3 days, my lower belly feels funny, sort of tight, is this cause for concern, should I call my ob? I feel a little gasy but no pain

Sounds normal: Your uterus is up out of your pelvis and should be palpable in your lower abdomen so if you aren't having pain or bleeding this is probably normal. You might ask your OB to show you the top of your uterus at your next exam so you know what you are feeling and can keep up with the growth. It really is exciting to know that that is your baby growing. Best wishes.
