Perfectly safe, the fetus is well protected. After a while it will be uncomfortable anyways so that will solve itself.

Is it normal to have a sensitive stomach while pregnant?

Tender where specifically?? in the stomach area or lower in the abdomen by your pubic bone?? either way a tender stomach is normal and so is feeling tender around your uterine area :) any sever pain you will want to take note of and talk with your doctor or midwife about it.AnswerHello - Yes this is normal during some pregnancys. But if you are concerned, see your doctor. :-)AnswerI have the tenderness right above my pubic bone exactly only when I push on it and it feels abit hard. No other pain in stomach, and don't feel anything at all except abit of a heavy feeling. I went off the pill on the 13th and 6 days later I had a very tiny amount of brown and pink discharge only for a few hours maybe. I know that I ovulated because of the mucus I had but no period has come yet and I usually always bleed if I stop taking the bc pill, I had to go off it because of high blood presure and I'm going to be 35, on April 9th. when I went for my annual exam on the thirteenth I had a normal pap and the internal exam was fine and I had no tenderness at the time. So it's just werid all of a sudden, maybe it means my period is coming but I have never had this before my period. I had alot of cramping after the ovulation but know there is nothing. Sorry so long. answerYou may be pregnant but unlikely if you have only just come off the oral contraceptive, also unlikely that you ovulated. You may have a bladder infection. You should see a doctor as this doesn't sound normal.

When it starts getting uncomfortable, probably sometime between 16 and 20 weeks. The best position to sleep while pregnant is on your side, with a pillow between your legs and another under your abdomen.
