I've been having pain in my breasts and my belly button recently started to hurt when I touch it. Could I be pregnant?
Back to health Class: No. Until you miss a period no symptoms represent early pregnancy before this. Do you need a refresher on how babies grow inside a female and when the mother's body can detect it is pregnant (about fourteen days after conception)? Physicians never speculate about diagnosing pregnancy. They direct patients to get pregnancy testing. If you have missed a period you must test. If not, you must wait. ...Read more
I bent over in a awkward way I'm 12wks pregnant n felt something flip in my stomach it hurt n felt to big n high to be the baby next to belly button?
Hard to say.: At 12 weeks the baby is very small and located just inside the pubic bone so it is not likely that the pain you felt is related to the pregnancy. You can see if the pain returns and if it continues schedule a visit for an evaluation. If it never happens again then it may not be possible to know the exact cause of a one time pain ...Read more

Belly button "outti": Pregnant with the umbilicus( belly button) sticking out ("outti") is quite common at 40 weeks gestation.

Probably not: Your baby is well protected by your skin layer, uterine layer, and amniotic fluid. A bump from a door jam is unlikely to generate enough force to cause damage. However, go to l&d if you have decreased fetal movements, cramping, pain that is increasing, or any vaginal bleeding. Even though unlikely, an abruption (placental separation)is what we worry about from any trauma. Check with your OB too. ...Read more

Not at all okay...: What you've described is quite concerning.

Depending on what the lump looks/feels like, it could be a few things, but most commonly in this area you could find a hernia or a cyst. Requesting a consult and providing a picture would likely give enough information to tell you more certainly if concerned. ...Read more
