Muscle Cramp?

On the top left of my belly button, I'm getting what feels like a slight muscle cramp, I've had them before BUT anyone know how to sooth them and why they appear?! It's kind of irritating me.

  • All I can tell you is to walk and/or breath relaxingly.. Thats what I do. I'm almost 34 weeks and my stomach muscles tighten and feel like really bad cramps. But they only last for a minute or two then they go away. So try breathing slow and in a relaxing manner when you get them and see if that helps.
