Dear An_254255,
It's not clear what is going on. You didn't mention how old you are, and are you on a birth control pill? It certainly is worthwhile checking in with your health care provider; depending on exactly what is going on, an ultrasound might give you some extra information.
Good luck,
Mary Jane
