Weird belly button pain

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Has anybody else had a weird pain in their belly button? For the last couple of nights, I have had a pain in my belly button region. Sometimes it gets to the point where I just can't get comfortable no matter how I sit. It usually starts around 5 or 6pm, and lasts until I go to bed at 11pm. My guess would be that my uterus is just starting to hit that point, and it's putting pressure on the muscle there. I just wanted to see if anybody else was having this experience.

Major sympathy from me. I've had this with both my previous pregnancies and am dreading when it may start again this time. When I was seeing an OB awhile ago she called it displaced pain from general muscle stretching all over. But I think now, after talking more about it with my midwives, that it is related to an umbilical hernia. (As my mom says, I had a "major outie" belly button as an infant/toddler.) As I get a big preggo tummy it puts pressure on the hernia and OW OW OW. The only thing that has worked for me is wearing one of those support belts under the tummy. It tends to hold everything more still and keep sudden movements or stretching from causing pain. I've even worn it to bed with the body pillow. May not be what's going on with you, but maybe that helps!

I have had weird pains all week too, stuff that feels like normal round ligament pain & then a burning pain in the same spot, all beside or below the belly button. I think its all normal, but it stresses me out!

I had something similar, maybe... I finally figured out that tadpole's round little noggin' was pressing right up against my innie, which was making it sore. Intrauterine pillow, maybe?

Hope it gets better soon!

I have been wanting to get one of these. I'm just not too sure where to find one. Do you have any idea where I could go look for one? I know they are supposed to help with round ligament pain, which I've been dealing with too. If it helps with that, maybe it can also help with my belly button pain. Thanks for the advice.
