Welcome to the forum!
A pain in the stomach area that was felt below belly button and started hurting after eating and stretching could be due to a muscle pull. It could also be due to gas getting trapped in the intestines.
The other possibility is allergy or intolerance to something that you ate. Please consult your doctor as a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net. You may need to take a food sensitivity test.
Hope this helps. Take care!
