Its a main artery I wondered that too until a doctor told me when he saw it. I had anxiety and my heart would beat fast, I asked him why my stomach was pulsing I know its like right over your stomach he told me it was just my main artery cant remember I believe he said it was the largest of the whole body.

Hello There..
Welcome to healthcare Magic forum..
There is huge artery called abdominal aorta in the abdomen..If you are thin you can feel the beating of this vessel just like your heartbeat..
So there is nothing to worry and you are not pregnant for sure!!
Hope this helps
Take care..

Hey so I have been having pain in my stomach when I push on it and I seem to be bloated a lot. I have had sex recently but does something like that mean I could be pregnant? I have also had what I believe is my menstral period but I heard that you can still be pregnant with something like a period. I can also feel my heart beat in my stomach when I lay down.

Hi a friend of mine has a girlfriend. She Is 5 months pregnant , she went to the doctor today and they told her there is no heart beat and the baby is dead .how soon should the doctors remove the dead baby? She said she has an appointment in 3 days to remove it. Wouldn t they have done it today at the doctor?? I personally don t think she is pregnant due to alot of factors that happened before . How can we know for see if she is telling the truth or not. He has never been to the doctor with her for what ever reason she didn t want him to go with her.she has also never taken/shown him any sonogram pictures , given the fact that she said the doctors ( not a baby doctor a doctor in the ER, )she was having stomach pains went to the ER and thats when they told her she was pragnant and that said she is having a girl, but didnt tell him about the pains , she just went to the ER . Would they have done that gender test in the ER? Please provide any information you can It s greatly appreciated YYYY@YYYY
