Changes In The Belly Button With Pregnant Women

The belly button is the scar of the connection of the umbilical cord. The deepest part of the belly button is tethered to the abdominal wall fascia. The shape of the belly button is from the overlying fat and skin with the deep attachment holding the typical "innie" shape. With the distension of the belly of pregnancy, the abdominal wall pushes out. This can change the shape of the belly button, for some more shallow and for others, "pop out." Some women have told Dr. Bermant that they feel like a turkey, and their belly buttons like the pop up temperature button. One pregnant woman even asked if that meant her baby was ready for delivery! Sorry, belly button changes during pregnancy is not related to the timing of the delivery.

A stretched belly can also exacerbate an umbilical hernia. Belly button pain and changes with coughing can be signs of an umbilical hernia. Such issues should be checked with your doctor.

The change in tissue tension during pregnancy can make an "innie" belly button into an "outie."

For most pregnant belly buttons, this is a temporary situation that reverses after delivery. If the skin shrinks back to normal, the belly button typically reverts. For a small number of women, a weak deep belly button attachment can loosen leaving an "outie" after pregnancy. When the abdominal wall and skin are not factors, Umbilicoplasty Belly Button Sculpture can restore the "innie" shape.
