I have been searching for an answer to this as well because I am pregnant (30 weeks) and have the same thing... Please let me know if you have found any info, I will continue to search and if I find anything I will keep you posted. Helen Chapman (helendavies@webmail.co.za) I am 8 months pregnant and about 4 moths along I started getting a dark line all the way down the middle of my belly from just under my breasts all the way to the bottom of my belly. This is very common, healthy, and normal. Therefore, getting a dark ring around your naval might have something to do with the same thing. Yes it is very common, about 40% of women get it. It is called the linea nigra (black line)

I'm 11 weeks pregnant and my belly button has started to get firmer. My belly is also firmer and fuller, which is normal. My belly button is also a bit sore at times...I think this is because around weeks 16-20 it will start to pop out, which is also normal. your worries.

According to my midwife, it is normal for your uterus to come up to about an inch or two below your belly button at this point in pregnancy. Around 20 weeks, it should reach, or almost reach, your belly button.

When the baby's done! No, it doesn't always happen. There is no way to predict whether or not your belly button will pop out pregnancy to pregnancy and is mostly related to the position of your baby. Some women are quite annoyed by this and will even tape their belly button flat to their pregnant bellies. It is helpful to know that your belly button popping out can be normal and is not harmful to you or your baby.
