I have an appointment tomorrow morning, so I know I'll get answers from my doctor then. But this has been on my mind all day! About four inches above my bellybutton (I don't think this is my uterus at this point?) my stomach feels very sore, especially to the touch. Like, it feels like a bruise, on the left and right side of my upper abdomen. Is this my belly stretching?? I'm carrying high, and the baby is a girl. I thought you only felt stretching in the lower abdomen (round ligament). I also thought my uterus was lower. I need to repeat high school health class. Anyone else feel this in second trimester?
