I am 38 weeks pregnant and I have been getting a sharp pain on the right side of my belly button - it feels as though my flash is tearing close to the surface. Is that just because baby is pushin on the right side a lot or could it be bad, like my sac ripping?

I recently have been bloating severly, sometimes even looking up to 9 months pregnant, after eating anything. I went to my dr. and they ran blood tests and they all came back normal. I have tried gluton free eating and am having sharp pains 1/3-1 inch above my belly button on my right side. The bloating lasts 12-24 hours and when I wake up in the morning I have a flat stomach. I am going to the bathroom regularly and seeing slime in my stool, stool is always soft. What is going on with me?

I m 32 weeks pregnant. About a week ago I felt this sensation on the right side of my stomach where my bump sticks out. It felt like a rubber band snapping and I could actually hear it as well. I didn t leak any fluid with it so I didn t think it was my water breaking. Tonight in the same spot I am getting random sharp stabbing pains. At first I thought a bee or some other insect had stung me, but it s on the inside of my stomach. Each time it happens it makes me jump because it hurts that bad. Is this a normal pregnancy symptom?
