I had really bad pain in my upper admonial area when I was pregnant; it was due to my stomach being crushed by my Daughter and the ligaments stretching etc.

If you're worried it might be something more or just want some reassurance I would definately talk to your Doctor or Midwife, there's no harm in checking that everything is okay :)

How did they know that it was that? They have done a recent ultrasound and everything they saw looked very well and she was growing like she was supposed to be. This is my third pregnancy and neither one of my other children I had anything like this and that's what scared me so much. They checked her out last night and done blood work on me and everything came back very good nothing showed anything was wrong, I wasn't having any contractions or anything all I was having was the upper belly pain.

I'M NOT TRYING TO SCARE YOU but my cousin lost 2 of her children to placental abrubtion, she lost them both after 20 weeks. She had bad pain in her upper stomach and it was her placenta tearing away from her body, she lost them both pretty quickly. So I would check with your doctor and if you are in alot of pain go to the ER. I'm sure everything is ok but it's best to check. Good luck!!

Could be heartburn, check with your doctor as a mild antacid could be all you need.

I would talk to your doctor. It could be nothing, but you never know and when you are pregnant its not good to take any chances on yours or the babies well being. Hope you feel better.
