In brief: Depends
If by feeling pregnant you mean bloated, than an excess intake of fiber and inadequate fluid intake could be the culprit.
Mistakenly people add fiber to relieve symptoms when indeed they are not gewtting enough fluid, or an excess of caffeine intake which can lead to dehydration and thus an imbalance between fiber and fluid intake.
