Why does drinking alcohol cause your stomach to blow up like a pregnant belly, why does the weight only sit in the stomach and not in other places?

In brief: Alcoholism

It doesn't in general.
You are describing a situation that sounds like too much alcohol too often. Most people do not have any effects as you describe them. I would try at least a thirty day trial of not drinking to see how your GI system works when it is not being stressed by alcohol.
