In brief: Talk to your doctors

Intestinal blockage does cause abdominal pain, but this should get better with treatment.
Please discuss your concerns with your doctor.

In brief: Belly-button pain

Belly-button (umbilical) pain may originate locally due to infection or herniation, or be "referred" from another abdominal location like the appendix.
Signs/symptoms of concern include: local redness & drainage, umbilical bulging that can't be reduced with gentle pressure, fever, vomiting, change in bowels, generalized abdominal tenderness (suggests peritonitis), worsening pain.Get her rechecked.
