I have searched in the forum but I can't seem to find anything about this, but my search words may not have been the best, so I'm sorry if this topic has been discussed before! (if it has, please simply refer me to the past thread!)
I'm only 5 weeks along, but it has just dawned on me that I have a navel ring! (I've had it for close to 14 years, so I don't really notice it anymore, the way you don't really notice your toes or your elbows)
I've always imagined that I would have to take it out when I got pregnant, but now I'm hearing about these pregnancy rings you can get. Anyone can tell me where to get them? I'm guessing I would have to go to Montreal for this!!
As for taking it out, I'm ok with that, I am not absolutely attached to keeping it, but I am concerned that the skin stretching the hole would make so aweful scaring. Like I've said, it's been there for close to 14 years, so the hole will not close over, at least not before my belly starts to grow! Now having said that, if I do take if out (or even if I go the pregnancy ring way) when do I have to change it?? Does it have to be soon or can I wait till the 2nd trimester? Or even 3rd?
What did you do if you had a navel piercing when you got pregnant?? Did you get scaring? (I'm more concerned about scaring then loosing my ring, to be honest!)
