You don't say how old you are but the widening of a woman's hips is a natural occurance during puberty as the body changes from that of a child to that of an adult.
If you are really scared that your home pregnancy tests are in error, now is the time to see your physician or Planned Parenthood. If you are indeed pregnant, you need to be on prenatal care. If you are not, you still need to know why your periods have stopped.
------------------ We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.
something similar happened to me a few years ago. i completely stopped having a period for about 4 months (after being fairly regular for 10 years!). i was not sexually active so i knew that i didn't have a pregnancy risk. i also gained a lot of weight in a short amount of time. my regular doctor couldn't really find any specific cause for this to happen so she just put me on the Pill and that regulated my period (and worked nicely because i've been on it since and my period has been short and light). Anyway, something was still very wrong so i went to an endocrinologist who diagnosed me with an underactive thyroid. he also said that i had polycystic ovaries (had an ultrasound) and those two problems can cause your period to mess up and also cause weight gain. so definitely see you doctor and ask them to run some tests on your thyroid and also check for polycystic ovaries just to see if that could possibly be the cause of your missing period and weight gain.
