Brown Ring Around Belly Button

4 Replies
Lisa - December 15

My question is to any woman who is pregnant or has been pregnant and noticed a light-brown 'ring' forming around and inside their belly button around 8 weeks or so along. I vaguely remember having this occur with my other two pregnancies, but they were so long ago I am not quite sure. It would just be reassuring to know if other women have experienced this or not. Thanks in advance for anyone's help with this.

Thanks for answering my question. Right now I only have a 'faint' positive on an hpt confirming my pregnancy. I keep coming up neg at the drs office - but I have an ultrasound scheduled for this Friday. I am at a point where my 'belief' that I am pg is based on my 'vast' array of symptoms. The belly-b___ton thing started last week, and at first I thought it was dirt and I tried to wash it off. It wasn't a complete 'ring' until two days ago. I feel like I am going crazy and taking my friends and family right along with me. I am just lucky that my doctor is understanding and believes I am pregnant just as much as I do, even with the neg tests. I cannot wait until I know for sure.... Congrats on your pregnancy, and I hope your belly-b___ton no longer looks 'dead' after your baby is born. LOL Thanks again for answering my question.

Well, that brown 'Ring' has now started to form a little 'line' going south. SO I guess the ultrasound I have tomorrow morning will probably show SOMETHING I hope. I haven't did a pg test for over a week now - I wonder if it'd show a definite positive if I did one now? I wish you luck with your pregnancy too! I am so glad that someone answered my question, that I am STILL grateful! You have a lot less time to go through now than I do - but I am sure you are ready for it to be over with, eh? Good Luck with your baby! Take Care....
