Anyone have a belly button ring?

I'm pregnant with my 4th and have left mine in with every pregnancy up to the last week or so. Then I only took it out cause I just thought they might say something at the hospital. Mine is like a curved bar with a ball on one end and a stone on the other. I have never heard of a maternity ring. but had no problems with the one I have. It's also 14 K gold so that's also why I leave it in.

I went ahead and took mine out (at 19 weeks). It was a captive bead ring and it was starting to stick straight out instead of laying over to one side. I have a maternity barbell, but it's so huge that it's uncomfortable at this point too. So, I think I'll just punch the maternity ring in every so often to keep the hole.
Did any of you girls get stretch marks around your belly button? I got three stretch marks right above the hole with my first pregnancy, but no additional stretch marks last pregnancy (or this one, so far). I'm thinking maybe I got stretch marks b/c I kept it in for so long... but I don't know...

I wore a belly button ring all through my first pregnancy, I switched from the bar bell to the hoop. I find however with this pregnancy that I can't even wear it. I gained over 50lbs with my first pregnancy, so unless I wear the hoop, I can't wear one, it falls out cause I stretched the hole from the last pregnancy.

I kept mine in right thru my first pregnancy, although I changed to a flexi-bar in the last 6 weeks or so but my second cherub is nearly 6 months old and I only just put it back in. I don't think I even got close to 19 weeks this time around before I absolutely could stand it no longer. This baby was over a pound bigger in the end though!

I wore my belly button ring with my two previous pregnancies until it started to get uncomfortable, then put in a maternity one for a few minutes about once a week. That kept the hole and allowed me to be more comfortable, but I think I was farther along when I took it out. I'm only 19 weeks and I'm really started to feel like it's too tight. What are other moms due in October doing?
