I'm 3 weeks away from having my baby and my belly button piercing is starting to burn like fire. I bought the maternity belly ring and have been wearing it for 4 months now, it helps a little bit. I tried to leave it out for a few hours the other night but had a hard time getting it back in. any suggestions?

Take it out until after you have your baby. Then you can put it back in. The hole wont close. I took mine out when I was pregnant with my 1st, I have never put a new ring back in and the hole is still there and its been 4 yrs. Your having trouble putting it back in because your skin is stretched to the max. Once you have had your baby it will be easier to put back in.

take it out immediately. you are supposed to after like the beginning of your third trimester is what my doctor said. if you dont you could get an infection.

I've heard you can put fishing wire in there to keep in open. Sounds weird I know, you may want to ask your doctor.

Take it out and just stick it back through every couple of days.. that way the hole doesnt close up. I left mine in for too long; i think i took it out when I was about 7 months- and i ended up having stretch marks/scars around it. They are almost gone now, but i think its because i didnt take it out. But after I did, i just made sure i poked it through every now and then and it didnt grow up!
