      Your stomach is just below your breastbone (sternum) and is shaped kind of like a “J,” with the top bit to the left of your middle, and the bottom bit curving a little to the right of the middle (s0, mostly to your left side). There is a rare condition, though, called situs inversus, where it’s flipped (and often other organs are on the opposite side, too)!
