I'm 23 weeks pregnant today and my belly literally popped again. I swear I look bigger today than I did yesterday. I thought this whole growing thing was supposed to be gradual but I feel like I bloomed. With this growth spurt I've started feeling pain in my upper abdomen that travels down the right side of my body. It's not a contraction since its not exactly in my uterus, at least I don't think. We went out for sushi (nonfishy california rolls for me!) and as we shopped at Target later that evening I felt the pain get stronger, but still it felt like gas, a whole lot of it radiating. I'm assuming its not in the usual place gas would be because the belly is kind of intruding on all other organs at this point. We went home and I'm now lying down sipping water and have a heating pad on the offending area and googling the heck out of all of this but it feels better now. I only drank a few glasses of water yesterday and today so that could be the culprit. I felt tempted to call my doctor but I'm monitoring it to see if it goes away. So far, if I get up and walk around it comes back, if I lie down and use the heating pad its fine. I hope it goes away for good tomorrow when I wake up.
Off topic, I just finished reading The Help. A very touching story of infertility and loss in there, and a really great book overall. If you're looking for a good read I highly recommend it.
