    Hi Hayley

    I guess you mean naval or "downstairs" piercings but I took my nose ring out as soon as I found out I was pg. I just thought it wouldn't be nice to have my baby not be able to grab or touch my face and I wanted to start as I mean to go on so I didn't wait for the birth before I took it out.

    :) lou

    I have put retainers in my belly button which are flexible so arent as much pressur on the piercing hole. Labrette (lip) has come out coz the metal tasted funny :lol: still got to get a retainer for it

    ALL THAT I HAVE PIERCED IS MY TONGUE, NOSE, AND EARS I DIDN'T TAKE ANY OF THEM OUT WHEN I HAD MY SON AND HAD NO PROBLEMS. SO I DON'T THINK I'M PLANNING ON TAKING THEM OUT WHEN I HAVE THIS CHILD. I WOULD IF I HAD MY NIPPLES OR BELLY BUTTON PIERCED I THINK BECAUSE YOUR BELLY GETS BIG AND I'M A BREASTFEEDER :D

    Hi All,

    Rach as far as I know it is only for peircings that are affected by pregnancy.. ie naval because of skin on belly expanding - I think the only reason is for the comfort and the stretching of the skin around the peircing may cause pain and the jewellry would / could irritate. I was told when pregnant 10 years ago to take naval piercings out [I have 3 piercings in my naval] at about 16 weeks but I m/c at 15 weeks :cry: As for other piercings I have no idea..... just be aware of any pain but nose, ear, facial etc are all OK but naval and private parts may be sore!!

    This year when I fell pregnant I bought retainers from OUCH! - they were great but never put them in as m/c at 8 wks.. I sent them back unopened but hope one day soon I will buy some more.. I have no intention of letting my piercings close up unless I HAVE TO!!

    Happy pregancies everyone :)

    you can have to take all jewllery out if c-section's, my friend was told to take off all her jewllery inc her tounge percing as they thought she may have to have an emergacy c-setion, and as she'd only had it periced just about 6 months (she didn't know she was pregant till she was 20 week's) it closed up and she had to get it re-done which hurt alot apparently.

    if u do have a c section you will have to take all jewellery out, but u can put it back in after.

    as for having tongue pierced again, it hurts alot less second time round, ad you know what to expect. :lol: had mine done 3 times so far lol
