bloated abdomin?

My abdomin hasn't been the same since I had Dd over a year ago. But I have lost all my prepreggo weight and I'm pretty much back into shape, well, lately I've noticed that my abdomen is swollen in the center above my belly button. I had a vaginal birth and I'm just wondering what this could be caused by? Anyone ever have this happen.

It actually kinda of hurts today too, and I've been experience a lot of nausea. No insurance to go to doc unless it's really severe.

  • it sounds like a hernia. if it gets hot and red and really sore that is trouble. just a little sore is ok though. you might have re-opened it when you were exercising or something

  • did you have a hernia when you were pregnant (did your belly button pop out?) if you push it does it move or hurt? idk what else it could be

  • My belly button never popped out.. could that mean I had a hernia?

  • You really should have it checked out if you've been having this for a while. Ovarian cancer sometimes presents this way, so if it persists for a few weeks, GET IT CHECKED OUT!

  • I just had a pap smear and full body check up a month ago, and it was there then, but I wasn't really paying attention to it, the doc didn't really see it cuz it's only when I'm standing that it bulges out. Thanks for the answers.
