I feel fetal movement but ultrasound shows i am not pregnant. Why is that ?

I wonder why the ultrasound told me that I am not pregnant because I really feel I am because of the pulse in my stomach and I feel baby movement inside... I am expecting a four month pregnancy now...

Hi welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum....
I wanted you to know that there are Subjective and Objective signs of Pregnancy.

subjective signs-The classic presentation of pregnancy is a woman with menses of regular frequency who presents with amenorrhea( absent periods), nausea, vomiting, generalized malaise, and breast tenderness.
These symptoms of pregnancy are confirmed by Urine pregnancy test and early trimester obstetric scan.
During 2nd trimester(13-28 wks of pregnancy) there will be fetal movements,the perception of the same is called as Quickening. In an non pregnant women the same perception is due to strong bowel movements in the absence of fetus, this kind of perception falls to a category of PSEUDOCYESIS.
Obstetric scan is Objective signs which will confirm the pregnancy.
In early pregnancy the gestational sac might be missed due to excess of peritoneal fat. Please consult the Obstetrician.
