I'm 21 weeks I have a sharp pain by my belly button, I don't know why?

I'm 21 weeks I have a sharp pain by my belly button, I don't know why?

21 weeks: I am assuming that you are twenty one weeks pregnant. At 20 weeks the fundus-top of the uterus is positioned at about that level. Sometimes the stretching of the ligaments could cause this discomfort. Please notify your OB sbout your concern. It probably is the expansion of your uterus, but this type of discomfort should be only for a short time, until your body gets accustomed to the "stretch".
