Not sure where to start...
Yesterday when I was heading to bed, I noticed my belly button had nearly popped out. I always had a really deep belly button and thought I might avoid this but it seems not. Today though it seems to be a bit deeper again. I'm assuming this is normal but when did your belly buttons pop out? I have my belly button pierced and I've bought a flexible bar... I'm wondering if I should be thinking about wearing it.
My nipples have been giving me jip for ages but the last few weeks the pain has intensified. They were all chapped and i kept having to clean fluff out of the cracks from where they had rubbed on my bras. A combination of nipple cream and vaseline seems to have done the job on that but they are still soooo sore. Feels like they're being stabbed with red hot pokers. The pain was so intense earlier I was literally sobbing trying to have a shower. Is this normal and is there anything at all I can do about it? I'm not even halfway through yet!!! Is this likely to carry on/get worse?

My bellu button only really popped out in my twin pregnancy but it did flatten in my other pregnancies. I used my flexible pregnancy belly bar as soon as it started to flatten.
I can't help you with the nipples, sounds painful, you poor thing

Belly button survived without popping out last time and this time (so far). Whih is good as I am a bit outie-phobic!
This time my boobs etc are fine, but last time I remember being very sore/hot early on and couldn't wear a lace bra as it was too irritating. Lasinoh cream is great for sore nipples when BF so maybe good to use whilst you're uncomfortable now?

My belly button didnt pop, just flattened. I kind of wanted it to pop, as long as it went back again! I didnt bet roind to getting a flexi bar so took out my piercing mid way through, then had it re-pierced when J wa s6 weeks cause my tummy looked odd (even more so than just post-pregnancy) without.) I don't remember my nipples being *that* sore, they were more sensitive, but the pain didnt really kick in until breastfeeding. Might be worth a chat to the MW to check, though it's probably it's one of the joys of pregnancy.

Sorry only just got back to this.
My belly button was almost flat this morning so I put the flexible bar in, seems to have gone back in though now!!! Don't really want an outy but if it's going to do it wish it would make its mind up lol
My nipples just don't seem to be getting any better. idc, I've gone through a whole tube of nipple cream in the last few weeks :-( went swimming today and the movement of the water was unbelievably painful. If I can make it that without cutting them off lol I will ask at next mw appointment

My belly button has poked out and was really deep before too, not pierced though, but I have discovered a new freckle hahaha.
As for the nipple situation, mine havent cracked but have tingled, gotten huge and very tender. My mum told me to use lanolin on my nipples to help stop them cracking. It is lovely but quite expensive xxxx

I'm not sure if its possible, I'll have a google for you but I'm wondering whether you could thrush on your nipples? I think it's probably worth getting checked out or at least mentioning it to the mw as its causing you so much discomfort.

I was thinking nipple thrush if they are that sore? I'd make a GP appointment just incase. It doesn't sound like normal pregnancy nipple pain to me.

I dodge ring ooh Dr in the end, he said it sounded like a mild infection but nothing to be too concerned about and to get a breast exam at some point.
The last two nights though my left nipple has been leaking during the night and the pain seems much easier on that side. i can now have a shower without it hurting on the left. my right nipple is still really really painful. will mention it when Im at the hospital on Thursday. thanks ladies.
Oh and my belly button seems to have gone deeper again, no idea what's going on but happy to be avoiding an outy for now!!!
Sorry about terrible formatting, Im on my phone.
