  • it likely has nothing to do with your baby's cord. your belly button and your baby's cord are in no way related.

  • I had the same pain for a couple weeks and everything was and still is fine. Unfortunately it's just another pregnancy pain. I personally think its a mixture of stretching and the uterus pushing the belly button out.
    If in doubt, don't hesistate to call your doctor though. Good luck!

  • I've had it too. Like PP said, your belly button and your baby's umbillical cord are in no way related. Maybe its just a pain from you belly button stretching and changing? I had a very small belly button to begin with and so mine really got stretched out alot. I only have 2 tiny stretch marks on my whole stomach and they are right on my belly button. Don't worry about it.

  • I had it also and my doctor told me that it could be a hernia but your baby's cord is hooked to the placenta which is normal hooked to the back side of your uterus. The pain was gone after a few weeks. How far along are you?
