  • I am not trying to scare you, but I have heard of girls that bellies have gotten so big and they left them in that they had to have them surgically removed.

  • the hole for the piercing will stretch, everyone i know who had it took them out. i don't and never had one so i don't know, but if you call a tattoo and piercing shop they should be able to tell you what to do. or atleast suggest what they think the best option is

  • I think it depends on if your belly button pops out or not. Mine never did so if I would have had it pierced I don't think it would have done anything to me but most people I know carried much higher than me and theirs all popped out.

  • The reason they suggest that you take our belly rings is because with all the stretching that is going on in your belly it can cause an infection and the infection could cause you to lose the baby. I took mine out just because it was something I was going to do regardless of being pregnant. The skin that they pierce though does take a lot of damage and that damage is going to be there whether or not you take out your ring, I've heard that it's worse if you leave it it. I would talk to your doctor and ask them their opinion on the situation just so you have a medical professionals advise.

  • my sister left her's in and it went right back to normal, i was way too scared to leave mine in because i kept hearing about it tearing, plus it just looked gross, so i took mine out and have a major scar, i wish i would have left it in =(

  • I took mine out and I'mglad I did! I have a scar but I didn't have to worry about infection or the pericing tearing through. I can't imagine it would look very good with a big baby tummy anyway! It's the chances we take when getting peircings I guess. :D
