Umbilical pain: Good afternoon, the pain you maybe experiencing is musculoskeletal pain. As the uterus is growing out of the pelvis, your muscles and tissue have a tendency to stretch and can pull on the belly button. You can help by wearing a maternity belt to ease the pain. But the pain will not go completely away until after delivery.

Unexplained pain: There are many causes for your pain. I don't know how late you are with your period. If you have regular periods and have not had one this month, get a pregnancy test. If this is not the case, your pain could be related to an ovarian cyst, constipation, ect. I highly recommend you follow up in the office for further evaluation. You may need to have a physical exam and/or ultrasound.

Cholestasis: Cholestasis in pregnancy can be a serious problem. Usually occurs in the third trimester. It's caused by an excess accumulation of bile acids which can be toxic to the fetus. Leading to fetal distress and can even lead to fetal death. One of the most common symptoms is intense itching. Delivery at 36-37 weeks. If not term, fetal monitoring and monitor liver enzymes and rx for itching.
