Is it normal for my stomach and belly button to be tender?

Hi I am 28 weeks pregnant and I was wondering if it is normal for my stomach to be tender? I find that when my other children bump into my tummy it seems to really hurt. I also find that my belly buttom is tender. is it normal?

Answer: Hi, You may have pulled a muscle in your abdomen recently. If there is no cramping then it should be fine. Otherwise if you are worried it is advisable to visit your GP for a check up. Best wishes, Alex
