Possible miscarriage: This could be a threatened miscarriage. Did you see a heart beat on the ultrasound? If so, miscarriage is less likely. There is some bleeding or spotting in about 1/2 of all pregnancies. 1/2 of those go on and have normal babies and we never know what was going on. The other 1/2 miscarry. This is usually due to something the matter with the baby and not because of something mom did or didn't do. ...Read more

Nausea, in my throat, worse after eating. Burning with urinating, tender breasts, tiredness. Feel a pain near belly button everytime I pee. Causes?
Contact dermatitis: The most common cause I see for itching in that area is allergy to a metal, usually nickel. Most people wear a metal belt buckle, or have a metal snap and/or zipper on their pants, and if you're allergic to the metal in that buckle or snap, it will cause itching. Another possibility is that you may have gotten an irritating substance of some sort trapped inside your belly button. ...Read more
Navel: The navel is a scar where the umbilical cord was once attached. Around 90% of people have a depression (innie) ; about 10% have a protrusion (outie).

If you have a new or large protrusion - that could be an umbilical hernia which would merit medical evaluation. ...Read more
