I have a Hernia

So I just got home from my 24wk appointment and I found out that I have a Hernia right above my belly button.
Anyone else have any experience with Hernias during pregnancy?
Did you have to have it repaired?
Please share with me your experience.

Re: I have a Hernia

I had one with my first, I felt pain inside of my belly button. Like, sharp stabbing pains around 12-16 weeks it started. By the third trimester it didn't really hurt and by the end it was gone? I don't know, it just stopped and I never had to have anything done to repair it. My Dr told me that chances are I've had it since I was born. I'm pregnant again and haven't had any issues yet with one... so maybe yours will disappear too?

Re: I have a Hernia

I was told I had one in the same exact spot as yours with my first. But I didn't have any stabbing pains. My midwife said it wasn't serious; and I didn't have any complications during delivery or have the need to get it fixed. Now with this pregnancy I get the stabbing pains sometimes. But my ob said that everything looks fine and to just not strain myself.
