I wonder if anyone else has ever had this? I went for my 28 week appt at midwife today and casually said 'oh you have an umbilical hernia'. she asked if it is painful to touch, which it is..and that was that. I was just wondering if anyone else has had this, and if so, if you have any more info. I thought i would ask here before daring to google!! I would have asked the midwife more, but my the time i'd heaved myself off the bed, she was on the phone making my anti-d injection appt, writing in my book and taking my BP, and by the time we'd finished that lot, i'd forgotten to ask her more!

DD2 was actually born with one its fine, just keep any eye that it doesn't get very red or sore or very swolled and if it does then go to ur gp if not then it should go away by itself prob after bub is born. DD2 is 9 months now and at about 6 it calmed right down now she just has a little outty! Hers was HUGE but we didn't have to do a thing about it.
