I figured I’m pregnant, when else does it not really matter?  Own it – I’m sure it is cute to everyone but you.  Not necessarily the advice you want but I don’t have any other suggestions.

I say own it, too! However, if you do really want to try to hide it… do you wear maternity pants with the short band or the kind that come up over your belly? I found that the taller band minimizes my belly button a little bit. Also, gap has great tank tops that are really thin and work well under shirts without keeping you too hot.


those are them, but in the store they were selling them for 14.50 not 19.50!

A band-aid over your belly button might be a little less painful to remove than duct tape!! πŸ™‚

I never think it’s gross when I see belly buttons through shirts on pregnant women. I think it’s cute!!!!

I am not at that point yet, but I am fully prepared for when I am. I plan on using duct tape, bandaids, elastic that comes up over the belly, tank tops, and flowy tops. πŸ˜€

Ditto on the cuteness – I think they are adorable on all of you glowingly pregnant ladies.

I keep saying I need a pastie for my belly button – it’s not sticking out but the top of it shows thru jersey fabrics.

I have the same issue!  Now I almost always wear either a tank top under every shirt, or full panel maternity pants, or both.  As the weather gets warmer the extra layers are probably going to become a problem.

What we women don’t do in the name of vanity. Do you think a man would ever be taping down body parts if they had to bear children. Your body is working exactly as it was designed to do. Take joy in it instead of trying to hide it.

I am with the “own it crowd”. You are pregnant, and I am sure happy about it, so don’t be afraid to show it off πŸ™‚

If you really have to cover it up though, I suggest first aid tape. It is easier to get off than a band aid or duct tape and it also won’t hurt to take it off, as much.

Not trying to threadjack, but this thread came up right as I am dealing with a belly button issue, and well, belly button threads don’t pop up that often. 

Did anyone else experience cracking in their belly button as their belly expanded? I recently seem to have a little scab and some redness where my belly button must be being stretched out.  I am only 20 weeks, so I still have an “innie” but my belly is growing quickly. 

Also, I had laproscopic surgery so I have scars in my belly button and I’m not sure if that is causing it or if this is normal.
