  • could be what they call a belly button hernia... its a genetic thing but it sometimes doesn't show up till adulthood. I'd go to an internist if your family doc won't do anything for you, just to be sure.

  • could be ab muscle seperation sometimes due to pregnancy...they say the only way to fix it is surgery to repair the muscles...if overworked before back together will make it worse, and can cause a hernia..I have it too. There is a medical term for it something like Distastis Recti..google it and find out more!
