In brief: Recommend it
Naval Rings my migrate as the abdominal size expands in later pregnancy which may lead to scarring.

In brief: Generally yes
Already having a piercing is also not likely a problem but you may need to remove it depending on how your navel changes.

In brief: No
But you may want to.
The skin over the ring will get very very thin as you grow. The ring may pull through no matter what you do and you may want to remove it before that happens.
