That's it really. I'm not slim and have one DC and noticed a while ago that my belly button which has always looked normal now seems to have something which has moved up into it, feels soft but is a small bulge. Def not a baby!!

What should I do and should I be worried?

Pop and see your GP. Do you have fibroids?

Ladymary-had some polyps removed last year and can't remember if they said there was a small fibroid or not, nothing that needed treating at the time anyway tho I am terrible at remembering medical info!

My sister has huge fibroids, they make her belly button stick out. You're better off popping to see your GP and getting them to check you over. It could be a hernia, it's very difficult to say though so you need to see your GP. smile

Thanks Ladymary I will force myself to go to GP, always feel embarrassed in case they think I'm wasting their time.
