Naval Ring

I found out this week I was preg. my first baby as you could tell from my other post I have so many questions sorry.. I have another one I have a naval piercing should I take it out now? I know it is bad for the baby is it doing harm right now?

One more question is it true they start counting your weeks when the first day of your last period? If that is the case that makes me 6 weeks this monday.. thanks for all your advice and thoughts! cant wait to find out when the baby is due

Re: Naval Ring

The naval rings are not bad for the baby. They have no affect at all. I took mine out at around 5 months, because it got too uncomfortable. My doctor said to leave it as long as I wanted, and I have heard of girls that never took them out.


And yes your counting is correct. Congratulations!!!!

Re: Naval Ring

Congratualtions! It's up to you on whether you want to take it out. Like Karen said, a naval ring is NOT bad for the baby! I should have no affect at all. I left mine in until about week 10. I took it out only because I wasn't feeling attractive with it in. I gained a lot of weight early on. I was used to a thin, flat stomach. All of a sudden it was bloated & flabby & no baby growth to justify my weight gain.

Funny you bring this up because just yesterday (my 27th week) I decided to put it back in to see what it looks like with a real pregnant belly. It fit just fine. Mine is a ring, so the ring didn't lay to the side...it stuck straight out. Plus, I'm in the full-panel maternity pants now. The lower-waist-banded maternity pants just don't work for me anymore. There's no way I want a naval ring on with full panel maternity pants.

Good luck!
Gayle
