That would suggest that on one side of the Earth gravity would push you down (if the earth is between you and the center of the universe) and on the other side, gravity would fling you out into space.
No, because there's no center of the universe. The universe is effectively infinite and its expansion is uniform.
Well, I was responding to RB Kandy's suggestion about gravity being the force of the universe expanding outward. I don't see how it is possible to have this force coming from inside the Earth if Kandy's postulation is correct.
