  • I had this same tender spot around my belly button. It hurt quite a bit, but my doc told me it was normal. I guess you could call it "growing pains" Everything is stretching for you right now.

  • The first thing that came to my mind was "gallbladder" but I think that pain would be up higher. I'm not sure but I'd call the doctor on it. Could be nothing, could be something. They may want you to come in to check ya out. Hope everything is okay!

  • Call your dr. We are not medical professionals, do not know your medical history, and have not examined you. Pain around the belly button can indicate gallbladder or apendicitis. Or, you could just be experiencing normal pregnancy discomforts. You really should just call your dr.

  • ThrivingMom, I know you are not medical professionals, never said you were just thought I would try and see what OTHER MOM'S THOUGHT ABOUT IT...Not a big deal I don't know why people have to come on and say stupid stuff like that...

    Anyway.......... Yes I am pregnant I am 26.5 weeks sorry I didn't say that..lol

    I go to the doctor tom. so I didn't really want to call them since I will see her in less then 24 hours.. Just thought I would get some advice..
