or digestive which is the least likely from your description like bloating from IBS
either way you need to seek a physician evaluation please. ...Read more

Can pressure on belly while pregnant harm the baby? Is it possible to squish the baby? Or break the baby bones? Boyfriend was laying on top of me

We worry more about sudden impact injury like auto accidents or falls directly onto the pregnant belly. ...Read more
