Why is my stomach growing?

I noticed a few days ago I have a horizontal line right above my pubic area, and my stomach seems to poke out a bit right above the line, especially on the sides. I am sexually active and have unprotected sex but I am on birth control. I have gotten my period and a negative pregnancy test so I’m not sure what could be causing my stomach to poke out all of a sudden. If I were in fact pregnant, I would be 8 weeks. When I took the test, I would have been 7 weeks and I know that it is unlikely to get a false negative at that point. 


Just an update, the line is more like a crease 

Update 2:

Since I can’t respond to the answers, I am going to post a response here. For the person who said I am not educated on pregnancy, I think it’s actually the other way around. You can in fact be bloated at 7-8 weeks pregnant which if you have any common sense, would mean your stomach looks bigger. It does not take 20 weeks to start looking pregnant so I highly suggest you do some research before commenting on peoples posts with false info when they are just looking for help.

    Because you eat at fast food places too often.   Seriously, see a doctor.

    It is clear you are not educated on pregnancy & the female body. The uterus (where the baby grows) is hidden behind the pelvic bones until about 20wks. A woman who is just 7 or 8wks will not look pregnant.
