I think it is more likely a side effect of birth control since I've had the same reaction.

Yes, if you're before your period.
For me about a week or a week and a half before my period starts I get pre-period bloat.
I'm only 5'2" and I suffer from the tiny problem as well, don't worry if you're worrying about pregnancy.
Pre-period bloat and water retention is probably it. Smile
It helps to drink water and avoid salty/sweet foods, it'll help alleviate some of the bloated-ness.

Birth Control
I recently started taking birth control again after about a week or so of being off it...could that also cause my stomach to hurt? Or is that an early sign of pregnancy as well?
