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?

my son took cylert 15 years ago. only took it for a few months. developed stomach pains and loss of appetite at the time and this has continued to this day. His recurring stomach pain is in the morning plus nausea. It lasts for about a half hour to an hour. Has no appetite. Has tried different diets; tried eating first thing in the morning. Nothing works. Went to a doctor years ago and he told him he had Abraham Lincoln s disease. There is nothing wrong with his heart.

Hello. I am traveling in Cambodia and 5 days ago started to have intense stomach pains. I vomited for the first 4 days non stop. No diarrhea. The stomach pains continued to get worse. Yesterday I went to a Clinic in Cambodia, there the dr did a ultrasound on my abdomen and then diagnosed me with gastritis. He prescribed me Nexium, Phagel susp., and Debridat. It was very difficult to communicate with him, he did not speak english very well. That was 24 hours ago. Since then the pain has gotten even worse. The stomach is incredibly twisted and painful and pain is spreading to my back. The medical services in Cambodia are known for not being that great and I m wondering if this issue is more serious than the dr. s diagnoses. Or if you agree to think that it is simply gastritis, is there anything you can recommend that I take to ease the pain? Please let me know what you think, Thanks,
