If it it is less frequent, it could still be early labor or it could be braxton-hicks contractions, false labor, dehydration, uti, or even just plain "growing pains". See your OB if it doesn't get better. ...Read more

5 weeks baby and belly button isn't close yet. I have been to GP and he give me Fucidin cream. Today belly button stinks. What should i do??? Help!!!!

Back to GP: Sometimes it takes a while for the belly button area to close after the umbilical stump has fallen off. Sometimes a health care provider can chemically treat the area in the office to promote healing. If the area has a foul odor then this may be a sign of infection. Also look for redness and swelling around the belly button as well as a fussy baby. ...Read more

I've had my belly button piercing for five months, and around the top hole of the piercing is a purple color but there's no puss coming out.

I've had my belly button piercing for five months, and around the top hole of the piercing is a purple color but there's no puss coming out.

Skin healing: If there is no pus, no swelling and no tenderness, then the site is probably healing just fine. Some skin heals with a discoloration at first, which fades with time. If the piercing gets pulled on by your clothing during the day, that could be causing ongoing irritation, though, so try not to let it get tugged on. ...Read more

I have had pain in my abdomen for five days now that eases up and then when I'm on my feet gets worse. Also have very light spotting when I wipe. ?

I have had pain in my abdomen for five days now that eases up and then when I'm on my feet gets worse. Also have very light spotting when I wipe. ?

Your question?: Persistent abdominal pain isn't ever normal. Problems range from constipation to appendicitis, pelvic infections and ectopic pregnancy. This is just a partial list. The fact that it gets worse w. standing, suggests that pressure on the area of pain increases in the upright position. PLEASE see a doctor! Primary care, gyn or ER depending one severity of pain and time to get an appt. ...Read more

Constipated: You may be constipated. The bacteria that live in a constipated stool mass produce methane, a gas that may cause you to look distended and swollen. You might want your doctor to recommend a treatment for constipation, such as polyethylene glycol 3360, or milk of magnesia, (magnesium hydroxide) or an alternative. ...Read more

My five month baby has an inch of protruding belly button. Will that cause him any harm?

My five month baby has an inch of protruding belly button. Will that cause him any harm?

Umbilical hernia: Not a problem provided the protruding belly button can easily be pushed in when he is lying down. You can feel an "gap", with your finger, in the abdominal wall fascia deep to belly button. This should close in time, by age 2 - 3-years in caucasian children and up to 5-years in african or aa children. You can also tell if the gap is getting smaller with time. Need 2b reparired if it enlarges. ...Read more
