    Feeling of movement in abdomen?
    Jennette1979 posted:
    For the past couple of months I have been feeling movement in my abdomen. Sometimes is feels like something is jumping or poking me. I have also felt a little pulling on my belly button. I thought it was gas so I started taking Gas X and Prilosec. My last period was in June 2008. I have been on the Implanon birth control since January 2008. There are times if I make a sudden movement there is sever pain in my abdomen as well. What could be the cause of the sensation of movement in my abdomen? What else can I do?

    Have you done a pregnancy test? Have you been to the doctor to rule out GI disorders? Some can cause a sensation of movement, just like pregnancy.
