How old are you? I'm assuming that you're fairly young. In older people we are concerned about the palpable heartbeat in the abdomen which means that a person may have what we call an abdominal aortic aneurysm. The aorta is the major blood vessel coming from your heart- that first goes up and then makes a loop and then goes down pretty much the center of your body. The blood vessel is near the spine- so another question is are you skinny?

This is usually a normal thing in most people because all arteries have a pulse- and there are arteries that are near your belly button. (the pulse you get from your wrist is your "heartbeat" in your wrist). It is generally not a sign that you can be pregnant. If you were pregnant, you wouldn't be able to feel a heartbeat from there- it would be below your belly button (since it is quite some time before the baby gets large enough to be above the belly button).

Are you having your period? Are you feeling nauseated? If you're concerned about pregnancy you may acquire a home preganancy test or get checked by "planned parenthood" but of course your doctor would be best to evaluate you.

If you feel your feet more cold than usual- lack of pulses in your feet or numbness or tingling in your legs- then it would be worth seeing your doctor to make sure that there is not an underlying problem.

Best of luck,
AK
