Are you experiencing belly button pain during pregnancy? Or perhaps your belly button is mildly sore or itchy?
During my pregnancies, my belly button went from being itchy to feeling sore. Sometimes off and on I experienced jabbing pains, especially if I was bending down to reach something.
I had to be really careful not to bump into things with my belly button as that would hurt the most.
Upon researching it, I found that belly button pain and itchiness is common in pregnancy. Many women post questions around belly button pain during pregnancy, thinking “is it just me?”
It is not surprising that pregnant women experience some kind of soreness of pain in the naval area, as it is where our bodies are growing the most during pregnancy.
If belly button pain gets severe, ensure you get it checked out by your doctor. In some cases you could be experiencing an umbilical hernia or an intestinal infection.
