  • The worst it can do is stretch out the hole a little, there are some jewelers that make longer ones so that the skin can stretch over it instead of making it stretch the skin. I just took mine out because it wasn't comfortable for me, but that's just me, some women can keep them in with no problems.

  • it wotn hurt anything no but some drs suggest you to take it out to avoid a possiblilty of tearing i had mine done back in high school and with my first i had it out at 25 weeks this one i took it out around 20 weeks cause my stomach got bigger fasster lol

  • Ive still got mine and Im 41 weeks right now... Its really stretched but my Husband bought me a special pregnancy belly button ring that is longer and plastic so it bends (and the charms says "baby on board" awwww) and Ive been wearing that since christmas. I suppose as long as you still have a belly button it shouldnt be a problem.
    I did have a nurse at one of my appointments ask the doctor if I should take it out (kinda rude I thought but oh well) and he said nope, it was fine but I would have to take it out for the delivery in case of an emergency c-section, which is fine by me,
    Hope I helped, and you can google pregnancy belly button rings, there are a lot of sites you can buy them from!
