stomach "fluttering"

ill start fom the begining. i gave birth to my son in may of 2006. 6 weeks after i had him i went on the depo shot, i was on that for almost a year and quit getting it. my peroids are finally starting to get back to some sort of normal schedual. (ya for aunt flo). ive taken many a pregnancy test and have been trying to get pregnant but all the tests have come back negative and i got my peroid about 3 weeks ago. SO...heres my question. ive been having a wierd fluttering going on in my lower right stomach (almost by my hip bone) its not painful or anything. its feels like "babies first movement". but having negative tests and a peroid, could i still be pregnant, and the depo shot have just screwed up my system so bad my body just doesnt know whats going on.
NOTE: If your planning on having more babies DON"T get the depo shot. i wasnt told how long it would take to get pregnant after i stopped the shot and im misserable. ill never get that shot again. just my

  • I suppose it's possible, but it could just be gas. I've had that before and because it sometimes feels similar, and you remember the baby feeling you associate it. But you can go to the Dr. and have a blood test down.

  • You should go to your doctor right away. Tell him or her your situation, maybe they will give you an ultrasound.

  • If you were pregnant it would still show on a test, but if your unsure then go see the doctor. The depo doesn't change the hcg levels once you are pregnant...especially if you are having fairly normal cycles now. I think more than likely it is more a wishful thought and perhaps some gas. I too have felt the flutter and wondered if I might be pregnant..most of the time an alka seltzer or a gas pill takes care of it.

  • i thought of gas too, but there is not of that to fallow the fluttering. and its always in the same spot. perhaps i'll call the doctor
