indigestion and tummy bloated?

User Profile
Im just wondering if i could be pregnant..
I know its unlikely because i have my period but i feel really different this time, and dont know if im just making myself believe i am because id really like to have a baby.
I started my period 3 days ago and it has been the same blood flow as normal but the night i got it, i couldnt sleep at all because i had such bad cramping, nothing like before. I also seem to have developed a little bit of a belly and i am quite a thin person (i only weigh 120).
I also seem to be suffering quite bad reflux/indigestion/heartburn type pains, this has been going on for about a week.
I have done a pregancy test at home and it came back negative but that was the night before my last period started, could that have effected it..
If anyone could maybe just give me there opinions that would be great..

Hello and welcome to eHealth forum!

No, chances of pregnancy are less, still you can repeat the test and see since you took it a day earlier. The indigestion etc could be causing gas—which has made your tummy bloated. It can also be a mild case of food poisoning. Take an antacid gel and a probiotic and see. Consult a doctor if this does not help you. Take care!
