    Default Solid lump in upper center tummy...

    Hi Ladies,

    Hope this isnt TMI but I have a solidness (not quite lump but area?) in my upper tummy, has only showed up about 7 months after birth of my last child.

    It doesn't hurt unless I push it then it feels uncomfy and slightly sore from prodding.

    Anyone else experience this? Could this be over stretch sore muscle from pregnancy and traumatic birth?

    I feel fine most other ways (am a bit overweight and working on that and general tired from having two kids and a temporarily bad sleeper)

    TIA

    Default Solid lump in upper center tummy...

    I'm not sure if it's the same thing but I get a solid area in the centre of my tummy, a couple of finger widths above my belly button. Mine is because my stomach muscles aren't completely together and it's my bowel pushing through. I have IBS and it's especially pronounced and a bit painful during a flare up 😞

    You may have a hernia? I discovered I had one just above my belly button after I had DS3, I also have one on my c-section incision too :-(

    Hmm.....does it make you look fat?

    I'm carrying a lot of extra weight now but thought my tummy was looking fairly big..... (as stated am working on decreasing weight)

    half feel like I am pregnant again as it feels like it pushes out if that makes sense

    What happens when you lay down? Does the lump area disappear? Either way, I'd urge you to get it checked out - it may be a hernia and they can become strangulated and the bowel poking through can get stuck which can be very, very nasty - I have the scars to prove it.

    I'm not a doctor but often with hernias they poke out when you're sitting/standing but when you lay down they retract. As long as it's retracting when you lay down and it isn't hurting and you aren't feeling sick/fevrish/strange then you'll be ok but I really would speak to your FIL tomorrow.

    I had mine for 5 years before it turned into a emergency. If you can get fixed before you fall pregnant.
