So when is the right time to take out a naval piercing when you are pregnant??? I look at it everyday and wonder when it should probably come out. it looks good right now but im not sure if it should come out now or later. the Dr. knows i have it and he didn't say anything about it when i went (at 10 weeks)??

What is the APP POSITION ON Navel Piercings and Pregnancy?

Navel jewelry may be left in place; some women leave jewelry in during their entire pregnancy and delivery. If, during your pregnancy the piercing becomes uncomfortable, you can replace the jewelry with Tygon or PTFE, which are inert plastics (something like thick fishing line). These will bend and flex with your changing body, be more comfortable, and are safe to wear. Once your pregnancy is over, you can return to the jewelry.

Even long after the piercing is totally healed, it may or may not stay open without something in place. This varies from person to person. Wearing an inert plastic in the piercing will insure that it can be maintained.

In the event you elect to remove the jewelry entirely there is a chance it could be reinserted using an insertion taper even if the old jewelry wonÕt go back in readily. If it cannot be reinserted it is quite likely that it can be repierced.

As a side note, some women who lack sufficient tissue quantity or pliability for navel piercing prior to pregnancy are often well suited afterwards.

There is no special care that is required during pregnancy for healed piercings.

^^ I copied that from a topic that is on this board, its further down the page .. Before I knew this information, I thought you *had* to take it out, so I did when I was about 7 months along.. But I wished I hadn't because it never hurt or anything, and my belly button never popped out like others do.. I just didn't know this

I took mine out with my last pregnancy when I was about 7 months....I would put it in everyday to make sure it did not close up...

Now, with this pregnancy I am growing fast so I will probably take mine out when I start feeling uncomfortable....
