Weird Pain In My Belly

1 Replies
jen27 - April 26

I am 36 weeks as of yesterday. I am not sure if this is normal or not but I am feeling a tenderness almost like a bruise in an area of my belly about an inch below my belly button and maybe about 3-4 inches wide. I feel it the most when I am getting up. It started last night. It almost feels like something is stretching or maybe even tearing. I am also feeling it when I pee. Because of that I am worried that it could be a UTI but I thought that my bladder was lower down. Has anyone else had anything similar or have any ideas on what it could be?

hi, I posted on this same thing not too long ago and didn't get too many responses. Your bladder is wayyy down there so that is most likely not it (check out the baby growth pictures by week on babycenter.com as it shows a side view illustration and where your bladder is). I asked my doctor about this yesterday and she said that we have these bands of muscle (can't remember what she called them exactly) that run from under our b___sts down to the pubic area and they stretch more and more towards the end of pregnancy and just can all around hurt, get sore and pull like any other muscle. She said it was nothing to worry about. My only other concern was a hernia, but she said nope to that....
