Had a medical abortion at 14 weeks. 3 weeks after , 2 hpt were negative. However, i feel "gassy" in my stomach. Baby kicking? Continuing pregnancy?

In brief: 1st, why RU gassy?

Feeling gassy may reflect malabsorption of food (like gluten, lactose), intake of poorly digested food, or choosing foods known to promote gas (beans, fizzy drinks).
Sometimes its more complicated--a stomach emptying too slowly, bacterial overgrowth syndrome, delayed intestinal function, partial obstruction from any cause, infection, rectum problems, pelvic pathology outside the gut, maybe stress.
