  • yeah sometimes they get tender. try using a piece of soft kleenex or something and fold it and place it on your belly button then use that hospital tape stuff to put over it to keep it in place. it should make it a bit better, especially after it does pop and rubs on clothes if its already tender clothes may irritate it more.

  • It is tender because it is stretching. mine never popped but it hurt like hell.Nothin u can really do but lotion the area, but even that doesn't do much because most of the stretching is on the inside. hang in there mom.
