Bruised Belly Feeling
MSettle78 posted:
Latley like I feel like down on my lower belly before my pelvis in one spot feels like a BIG BRUISE its really tender to the touch I told my Dr they didnt seemed concerned kind of just like brushed it off maybe its normal ? I mean sometimes my whole belly feels like tender but does this sound okay or does anyone else have the same feeling ? I do have a giant wide stretch mark there maybe its from the stretching

I'm glad that your doctor doesn't think that it is anything serious, though I am sorry it does sound a bit painful. I suffered from a umbilical hernia, which made my belly button area more sensitive and painful. Is it anywhere near this region?

Hope you feel better soon!

Alleeson replied to Amelia_WebMD_Staff's response:
It might just be the baby pressing/settling there. I have a spot to the right of my belly button that is tender to the touch and at every ultrasound that's where they need to press because the baby is hanging out there. . . it's apparently her knees or her butt pressing against me!
