I would suggest asking a doctor about endometriosis. This may be far fetched from the extent of what you're feeling. I have known about my endometriosis now for over 6 years. It can be frustrating because they can't say you for sure have it until you have a laparoscopy to see it inside you but they basically can diagnose you from your symptoms. I remember thinking I could be pregnant when I first started having my symptoms. The pain before and sometimes during my period was horrible lower abdominal and lower back stabbing pain. I would check into that. Heating pads, hot baths and pressure on the painful area seems to help.
Phantom pregnancies are becoming more and more common.
There is no known universal reasons for phantom pregnancies.
Everyone has their own idea of why someone has a phantom pregnancy.
It is often recommended that women who are having phantom pregnancies have an ultrasound. This will prove to you without a reason of a doubt that you are not pregnant.
If you continually have these symptoms and thoughts, and an ultrasound doesn't help then the next course of action is generally speaking to a psychotherapist.
You should definitely nip this in the bud ASAP or you might end up having a "hysterical child birthing experience" after 9 months you might start to think you are giving birth and it feels VERY real or so I have read.
