Umbilical Hernia (delayed symptoms?)

I am just over 4 months post-partum and the past couple days have had pain/pressure in my navel area. It's not constant, but more noticeable when moving from a laying down to a seated position and when bending over.

Of course, I consult Dr. Google before I actually consider going in because the worst thing is to go the the doc just to find out you are constipated or something . . . LOL

Has anyone had an umbilical hernia and did you know immediately after having your baby or can symptoms be delayed as your uterus contracts an everything else tries to 'go back to normal'. Are there symptoms other than navel pressure and pain to watch out for?

Re: Umbilical Hernia (delayed symptoms?)

This happened to me after my second baby. A few months down the track I could pop it in and out. Then when I got pregnant with my third it got even worse and would come out and be very painful, and I would have to lie down and massage it back in. Now it still bothers me because my belly button looks ugly and weird. And I have a bad cough and the other day coughed so much that it popped out again. My baby is 9 months. Super painful, and considering surgery at some stage.

I had one that developed during/after my 2nd pregnancy -- had it surgically repaired, which SUCKED but was necessary. I highly suggest having it looked at to see if that's what it is. You don't want it to rupture and have emergency surgery.
