Ok so this might sound a little weird. On the right side, just above my belly button I feel like something is moving inside. I DON"T have any pain, it just feels weird like something is pushing my stomach. According to the DR. a few days ago, I'm not pregnant. Any idea what that could be? Could it just be a muscle in there moving?

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

If you feel something moving on the upper right side of belly button, then it could be a muscle twitch, a paraumbilical hernia or gas in the abdomen.

Please consult your doctor to eliminate a hernia. Gas can be taken care of by walking around and taking probiotics. Muscle twitches generally go away with time.

If you are very slim, you could also be feeling the pulse of abdominal aorta. Take care!
