In brief: Doctor to evaluate

A return visit to the ob-gyn doctor can help figure out the pregnancy symptoms.
The doctor can do a pregnancy test to verify non-pregnancy. A physical exam and some blood tests can help find out if there are stomach problems, hormonal imbalances, or other things that might cause pregnancy-like symptoms.
