Belly Button Pain, Pregnancy, Pain around Navel during Pregnancy, Umbilical

Wednesday, March 15th, 2006

Is it normal to have navel pain while your pregnant

Dr. Joshua’s Answer:

Belly button (umbilical) pain is quite common during pregnancy. The abdominal wall is at its thinnest around the navel, and the increased pressure due to pregnancy may cause sensitivity and pain in this area. It is probably harmless and will come and go. If it keeps getting worse, or there is noticeable bulging in that area, see your doctor.
