I'm 23 weeks pregnant and my uterus is at my belly button. I have read online that it should be 3 cm above. Do I need to be concerned about growth?

No: This is at best a very crude and indirect measure of growth. There is a wide variation of normal and you are better to look at how you have been carrying and the rate of growth.

I'm 23 weeks pregnant and after getting an ultrasound today, i came home with pretty bad pains on my right lower abdomen (no bleeding).

Temporary strain: Probably bec. Of the us probe's pressure or so you could have developed some pretty bad pains. Take plenty of fluids, avoid constipation, have good sleep and watch for any recurrence of pain after you do these measures. If so then consult your obstetrician. It looks like you had only the us and no procedures like amniocentesis . So most probably temporary contractions of uterus like braxton hicks. ...Read more

I am 23 weeks pregnant and I have a tingling feeling that is all over my belly. Scratching doesn't help it go away?

Gt checked: Most of the time this is simply caused by the stretching of the skin. Schedule a visit with your obgyn for an exam to rule out any rash or other causes. Benadryl cream over the counter can help with itching. ...Read more

23 weeks pregnant , is it safe to surgically remove a kiloid scar on my belly ?

23 weeks pregnant , is it safe to surgically remove a kiloid scar on my belly ?

Yes, but…….: Surgeries, when they are indicated and need to be done can be performed while pregnant. The question would be though, why do you need to have the keloid removed right now, while you are pregnant? Is it bothering you or causing pain? Typically keloid scar revision or excision is considered a cosmetic procedure, so would not be recommended while pregnant. Talk to your obstetrician about it. ...Read more
