This is probably not pregnancy. Bloating and feelings in your ovary  are typical of menstruation. If you were pregnant, symptoms would  most likely include morning sickness and lack of a period for two  cycles.
It is best to consult your OBGYN for the correct answer for you and your situation. But I have heard from doctors myself that a person should wait 3 cycles before trying again, thereby letting the body get back to normal. But again ask your doctor for the best answer. Good luck!!

No, when pregnant you can live a perfectly normal life. Just avoid certain foods like raw meat, fish and eggs, alcohol and caffeine and too much sugar. Sex is safe unless a doctor say otherwise and exercise is something that is always good for you, especially swimming. Avoid really heavy lifting.
In rabbits, the term is "false" pregnancy, not "phantom" pregnancy. Hormones cause false pregnancies. False pregnancies are stressful on rabbits. If you have a female rabbit, please consider spaying her. There are many behavioural and health benefits to spaying your rabbit. See the related link...

Yes. In a phantom pregnancy, the body is tricked into feeling like it is pregnant. Consequently the same hormones present in a real pregnancy will be present in the body of someone who is undergoing a phantom pregnancy, and these hormones are what a pregnancy test detects.

  Generally people who really want to be pregnant, are anxious about becoming pregnant, or feel guilty and are paranoid about becoming pregnant.
Somewhat, they have been proven to raise the chances of both participants dying during birth process.
Your veterinarian will be your best friend in this, because the  best way to distinguish a pseudopregnancy from a true pregnancy is  through ultrasound examination of the uterus, or through X-ray  imaging of the abdomen in late pregnancy.

It is possible that the pregnancy will naturally not come to completion. This would result in a natural abortion of sorts, where your body would have to pass the embryo or foetus..

As strange as it may seem, there are women that are so out of touch with their own bodies that they have not known that they are pregnant until ready to give birth. Not realising you are pregnant is more common in young women who do not know much about their own bodies and therefore miss the signs,...
it was hard but this really worked for me:1) every time you start thinking "awe, i have a little baby inside me" then just say in your head over & over "I'm not pregnant" slowly until you are thinking about something else (do this each & every time).2) if your stomach is starting to "look"...

Yes. I've had these several times, although it doesn't last more than a month (at least for me), because I've wanted to be pregnant so badly that my mind affected my body and aided in a delayed period - even though I wasn't pregnant.
  no not likely,, a test is never usually wrong wen it says positive,,
  Yes, you can. The hormonal changes are still there. Hormones are what make your body prepare for the baby. There have been cases of people convincing themselves they were pregnant, when they weren't, that even had their abdomen expand.
Yes they can. That happened to me once but I wasn't pregnant.
  I have heard of phantom pregnancies lasting as long as seven months!
If your pregnancy test is positive then most likely you are. You would be more likely to get a false negative rather than a false positive. If you are unsure, you can request a beta HCG test from your doctor. This will measure the HCG hormone in your blood system which is an indicator of pregnancy. ...
