I'm now 24 weeks pregnant and have noticed over the past few days that my abdomen (especially bellow the belly button and to the sides) is a little tender when I touch or rub it. I had a similar experience at about 16 weeks, thought it was only around the belly button, and then it went away after a few days. It feels more intense this time and I'm feeling scared and panicky. My OB appt. is not for another couple of weeks, so I don't want to raise any alarms before I go in to see her but I worry about things like ruptured placenta, etc. My last ultrasound showed that I have anterior placenta, so I haven't been feeling the baby very much at all yet. The OB said that this was normal.
I've been a jogger for the past several years of my life and have been keeping this up. My family doctor and my OB both confirmed that there's no reason I should be limiting my jogging as long as it feels comfortable. I'm so scared that I've done something to hurt my belly.
