I am uncertain whether this is in fact a sign of pregnancy, but I can tell you that I know what you're talking about. I have never been pregnant, but I often feel an inward tugging on my belly button. It almost feels like there is a cord tugging my belly button in and down... a very strange, slightly uncomfortable feeling. Never associated with pregnancy in my case, but who knows? Also- this runs in my family, maybe hormonal? This can also be the beginning sign of an appendicitis, if the pain moves to right or you start vomiting, go straigt to ER. It was a definite sign for me. I had this before I found out I was pregnant with my son. It continued throughout the pregnancy. And he was a healthy it had no adverse affect. Answer There are many causes of Belly Button Pain, from appendicitis to ulcers. I always advise people to see a doctor for such pain. Don't be like a friend of mine, who had such pain and just kept blowing it off, because he is an athlete, as aching or pulled abdominal muscles. He awoke on night to unbearable pain, his wife took him to the ER and discovered that his appendix has ruptured.

Bad pain should be checked out but cramping can be a sign of pregnancy.

Navel pain isn't normally a sign of pregnancy, but there are some other things that can cause navel pain, such as an ovarian cyst, and a few other things, if it's still hurting you need to have it checked out. ~pregnancy

It's a symptom. A sign would be a positive pregnancy test..

If you really think you are pregnant and have pain in the right shoulder you need to go to the doctor. Thats a sign of ectopic pregnancy!
