Tender/sore area on bump

It's to the left (my left) of belly button and is very sore and tender to touch almost like a bruise but on the inside.

It also hurts when I stand up and sit down.

Does anyone know what this could be?

There are no marks on my belly like a bruise or anything.

I'm v puzzled and concerned...

I have exactly the same thing! I'm sure I had it in my last pregnancy too.

It's so weird as it comes and goes. I've woken up this morning and it's gone! But I'm sure it'll start hurting again later...

Really want to know what it is!

I'm 18+5 and get this. Usually where my stomach is hard, so I assume that's where baby is (usually where there is a lump of some sort poking out a bit!) My little one has taken to sitting really low in the evenings and pushing forward, and my stomach gets really sore if I'm sitting upright for too long, or if I bend over, it's like he's in the way!
How far along are you?

I've had the exact same thing! For me it's muscular, and always comes on after working out. But it's strange, because it's the skin that feels as tender as the muscle underneath! I was told it's nothing to worry about, just the muscles taking the strain of baby growing underneath them smile Oh, and I've just had to lay off any kind of stomach strengthening work in workout classes, even though I was already doing pregnancy safe stuff. Hope that helps!

Same thing because I had a chest infection and I think the coughing pulled the muscle xx

I've got a similar pain (muscle and skin sensitivity) in exactly the same place you describe Chimerah. It's very odd but I'm putting it down to stretching!
