What is this weird white scar tissue in my lower belly???

I am a gestational diabetic. I give myself 8 shots a day. I give them in the belly because it hurts much less than in the leg or arm. Just a few weeks ago, I noticed my belly fat gravitate towards the bottom of my belly. Well in the last two days, I started noticing a whitish scar tissue looking bundle in that hanging fat area. It's very strange and it feels like swelling because it kind of forms to my fingers when I squeeze it. I'm wondering if it's not scar tissue or something from the shots that have just gravitated down there.

A friend said something about maybe my fluid is leaking out and it's collecting. I have no idea. But it's weird, and I'm worried. I see my doc on Tuesday, but you know how it goes. If someone has had this problem they'll know and let me know before then.

  • I am starting to think it has to be that. It's so weird. My hand is doing something funny too. on my right hand, my 3 center fingers swell up in the night while I am not using them and it feels like my muscles in them are tightening, and in the morning when I wake up, my middle finger is hard to extend, and when i do extend it, it feels like a muscle is getting caught and it pops a little. it's WEIRD. I swear...this pregnancy has been the worst. My first was a piece of cake, and now this one.

    My baby has hydronephrosis, and has to more than likely have surgery after he is born.

    Just a crazy pregnancy.
    Thanks for answering though!
