Teenager with feeling being pregnant, had no sexual relationship, feel the kick of the kid in stomach. Suggestion?

I am a 20 year old female with no children or partner, but I subconsciously think about being pregnant all the time. I have an ache inside me for a child and often feel my stomach , as if touching a baby, and I feel for kicks. This has been going on since I was 16 years old, but it has gotten substantially worse recently. Why is this happening? I have 5 years of university to go but have already planned years out to have babies and things. I have names picked. It s really distracting. A little girl asked me, last week, if i was having a baby and I wasn t upset because she thought I looked pregnant, I was upset because I had to tell her No. Please let me know if there is something I can do about this. It doesn t feel like an obsession because I don t mean to think about it all the time, it is just always there.

Thanks for the query.
The chance of pregnancy is very less in your case as you know.
Some amount of bloatedness can be seen premenstrually.
Some women may have these type of thinkings, which can turn into spurious pregnancy.
Means some physical changes of pregnancy like amenorrhea etc. can be seen in the absence of pregnancy.
So you better go for psychological councilling once.

Take care.
