What does it mean if you have a heartbeat in your stomach

Report as

What you are feeling is called a stomach pulse, of which you may want to have checked out by your doctor. There are several reasons that may allow you to see your stomach pulsating, one of which happens when you are lying flat on your back. The other could be from what is called an umbilical hernia. i would check with my doctor for certainty.

Your aorta, which is your largest blood vessel, carries blood from your heart down through your midsection before splitting in two just behind your bladder. To feel a pulse in this area is not unusual. It is said to be an indicator of good circulation.
