User avatar Hello,
The GI system (stomach, bowels, intestines) do make movements that truly are similar to feelings of fetal movement. When you are acutely aware that the possibility of pregnancy exists, you can be especially tuned into such feelings and it is confusing. If pregnancy tests are negative and you haven't had other symptoms you can probably rest assured it is normal peristaltic movement as food, gas, etc. passes through the system.

Best wishes.
