hey, hoping someone can help😬 I’m nearly 16 weeks and just experienced the weirdest pain around the right side of my belly button. When I went to the toilet, I let out a lot of gas (sorry tmi I know) when I stood up I had a shooty Pinchy sharp pain on the right side next to my belly button. It was something I’ve never experienced. It only lasted about 20 secs. When I stand up my side feels tight and when I prod it, it hurts. This isn’t like the normal growing pain I’ve experienced and it’s higher up (inline with belly button and slightly below) Should I be worried? What would you ladies do?
I would imagine it's probably just gas pains. I get them quite badly when pregnant and your intestine runs right at belly button level. Alternatively, it could be just stretching pains with the muscles straining as your uterus is expanding, though it might still be high for that. Round ligament pains tend to be low and on both sides closer to the hip bones. If it's fleeting though, probably just one of those things, but I would guess it's just gas.
Hey OP-I had similar around then. It continued to about 23 weeks but moved to the left side (went into hospital about it as it got so sore) and it's gone now. I THINK it was my internal organs having a jolly food grumble about having to move around as the uterus moved upward. Please however, get it checked if you're worried....
Could be several things like gas pain or ligament. Phone your mw of dr and have it checked to be sure. If it's not something to be worried about it shouldn't last for a couple of days and should be gone.
