Hello, Welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question. The swelling is probably from something other than pregnancy (weight gain, bloating, gas). If you were pregnant, you would be 9 and 1/2 weeks today, nine weeks on the 27th of April. Pregnancy tests will detect pregnancy at 5 weeks (March 29). If your physician had any idea that you were pregnant s/he would have ordered an ultrasound to confirm it.
I'm just wondering if there is a related reason to my missed period and my swollen abdomen? Can you help me with that? Just wondering if it could be something more serious. I did not meet with the dr. on my last visit. It was a day when they do free preg. test and I believe I spoke to a Med Student or Nurse. Thanks.
Also I have had more frequent urination probably within the past month.
A missing period can come from stress, emotional problems, infection, illness, thyroid or pituitary hormone problem, ovarian cysts (PCOS) and any number of other things. You will need to have a complete exam to find out why you aren't having periods and solve the problem of the swollen abdomen.
