Luckily, it’s usually a temporary thing. “Most women will have their belly button return to normal post-pregnancy, but of course all that stretching can sometimes affect the shape and size of the belly button once all is said and done,” says James.
Just about every belly button pops at some point during pregnancy. Like so many other pregnancy symptoms, a popped-out belly button is harmless.
Your skin and muscles are stretched to the max by the end of your pregnancy. You can develop stretch marks, itchiness, and pain as you go through stages of rapid growth. Your bellybutton is at center stage during all this moving and shifting. The bellybutton can get irritated in the process.
How do you know when your pregnant belly pops?
As your baby grows, your uterus, which is normally tucked perfectly inside your pelvis, will pop out above your pelvis and can actually be felt on the outside of your abdomen by you or your care provider. This happens in the second trimester, usually around 13 or 14 weeks.
Will my innie become Outie pregnant?
A: It doesn’t happen to all pregnant women. But sometimes a growing baby in the uterus can put so much pressure on a woman’s abdominal wall that her normally “innie” belly button becomes an “outie.” It typically happens in the second or third trimester of pregnancy, most commonly around 26 weeks.
As you can see, it is not attached to anything in the body. The belly button is where the umbilical cord attaches to the fetus, connecting the developing baby to the placenta.
Concerns as you grow
As your baby bump grows and your skin becomes taut, the piercing might pull on your skin. This can lead to soreness, redness, and small tears around your navel. If you have tearing or injury to the belly button, there’s the risk of developing an infection, if bacteria gets into the wound.
The growth of the uterus, as well as the baby’s position in the womb, can exert pressure on the bellybutton. Over time, the increased pressure on the navel may cause pain, itchiness, and discomfort.
There’s no one reason for this pain, but it’s usually due to the changes your body is going through. Your skin and muscles are stretching and your uterus may be pressing up against the belly button. In fact, as your uterus grows, you may find one day that your “innie” belly button is now an “outie”!
Why is pregnant belly bigger at night?
Why does your bump look bigger at night? So what’s going on? Experts agree that it’s all about your abdominal muscles getting tired from holding the weight of your baby bump, and so they loosen and expand, letting your bump sit out further and appear bigger.
When do you start to feel pregnant?
Other than a missed period, pregnancy symptoms tend to really kick in around week five or six of pregnancy; 60% of women experience some signs or symptoms of pregnancy as early as five or six weeks after the last menstrual period. 1 Symptoms tend to develop abruptly.
What happens to sperm when already pregnant?
Most of it will simply be discharged from the body through the vaginal opening. Thanks to the placenta, amniotic sac, and mucus plug covering the cervix, your baby has a protection system that’s very specific about what goes in and stays out!
