My Belly Button Hurts!

671 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Abraisme
I am 17 weeks, and yesterday my naval started to hurt. I thought it had gone away, but I just pressed on my naval and it hurts worse!

Any one else having this problem? Or more importantly, is there anything I can do to help???

Since this is your first, it could be your abdominal muscles stretching. I know I had some tenderness from it with my 1st and 2nd.
Don't press on it?

With my first, once by belly button became an outie, it was very sensitive. I believe it was a superficial tenderness rather than muscular.
I have stabbing pains in my belly button.. It's totally within the realm of normal. My sister also had a lot of belly button pain while she was pregnant. Just one of those joys. ;)
