    Thumbs down My stomach is bigger on one side???

    I am not sure if that statement makes any sense, but for the past two years I have noticed that the right side of my belly sticks out more than the left, but just at the top. No one else has noticed. I am pretty sure of that because I can only really see it when I am naked. It has been bothering me for awhile, but I am the heaviest of my friends so I have not dared ask any of them. Kinda hoping I am not alone!
    I will be asking my new doctor about it soon.

    My neighbour has that really badly and apparently it is caused by a part of his intestine had popped out of its original position.

    I'm glad to see I'm not the only one, I was beginning to think I was crazy! I noticed this when I started loosing weight. I was in front of the mirror naked and I could have sworn that in my "love handle" area, my right side was bigger than my left! I asked my husband and he said he didn't see it (I think he was just trying to be nice). But I swear, my right side is bigger, I was thinking that maybe I wasn't doing even ab workouts? So I have tried to focus more on my right side. Another thing I noticed is when I start doing ab work, especially standing ab work, my right side always gets this sharp pain, I think it's just a muscle pain, but it always comes only to my right side!

    I'm like this too. I'm bigger on my right side from head to toe. My right cheek is fatter than my left, my stomach, my right breast, my right thigh.. it's crazy! I'm the only one that notices but feel very self conscious. It's the worst with my right breast though. It's about a full cup size larger than my left! I got "cookies" from VS that I wear in my left bra cup to even them out. Nobody knows I wear it but would definitely notice if I didn't wear it!

    I'm slightly miss matched too. I don't think its really anything to worry about. One foot is usually bigger than the other, why not your belly, lol. No one is completely symmetrical. If you took a straight on picture of your face then mirrored the image in the middle, you won't look like yourself. The only thing I'd be concerned about is the pain you sometimes get when you exercise.

    I am glad to hear I am not alone. Thanks for all your responses. I will definately ask my doctor and make sure it is not a hernia or my liver.

    LOL It's funny that someone posted this topic because I have always tilted my head thinking my left side of my stomach sticks out just a TAD more than the right.
    So thanks ladies for making me feel less crazy!

    Mine is a little bigger on the right side also, sometimes it feels like there is a foot or something poking me in the side, I have to rub it, it gets painful sometimes.

    Mine is a little bigger on the right side but I know that's because I was born missing a rib on one side. Maybe that's it? My doctor says that about 10% of the population has a missing rib.

    I had this problem. Turned out to be a 4-pound uterine fibroid (and 3 smaller ones).
