Post subject: Quick question!!!
I am 14 weeks pregnant and have a belly bar in. I have been told that i need to take it out as it will strech the skin and split it.
But i have also been told that i can keep it in!
Im a bit confused and am just wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction!?!

i took mine out in my previous pregnancy and this one i re-peirced mine after my other baby was born
if u want to keep it in u have to put in a maternity bar which is like thin plastic tubing as metal can hurt ur skin the plastic is so thin it is ok to keep in for a while
personally i wud take it out as ur belly button pops out when u get bigger and it cud be uncomfortable

i agree, im going to get a maternity bar first and see how that goes as my normal one is beginning to make my skin a little sore and im only 12 wks, you might find that your belly button doesnt pop out later i pregnancy anyway...i took mine out last time and it was horrible havin it peirced again as they had to go in deeper.good luck xx

I had a belly bar with my 2nd baby and kept a maternity bar in all the way up to about 35 weeks. then every other day or so i would put it in again and take it out straight away, just to make sure it stayed open. as soon as baby was born i put it back in again. now i am 8 weeks pregnant again and i will do exactly the same with this one. Saves having a re-piercing done. OUCH!!!
