Thanks for posting your query.
The peristalsis can be visible if there is excessive distension. The symptoms that you are having are suggestive of pregnancy. You can get a blood test done if your periods are overdue. The blood test is a more specific and sensitive test to detect pregnancy.
In case the test comes negative and the symptoms are persistent then you may consider having an ultrasound scan for a proper diagnosis.
Right now for symptomatic relief from distension, you can have a few drops of peppermint oil. Do avoid foods that cause the distension.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
