Sometime in your second or third trimester, you might notice your "inny" has become an "outey." Pressure from inside your growing abdomen pushes the navel out. It might even poke through T-shirts and feel extra sensitive or itchy. Try to accept this temporary change. Your belly button will probably become an "inny" again after your baby is born. So, think of your belly button as the epicenter of your pregnancy and take good care of it.
Call Doctor If:
- Keep the skin on your belly clean and moisturized. This will reduce irritation.
- Wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothes to stay cool and avoid irritating your navel.
