That depends how far along the person is. We measure to the top of the uterus (the "fundus") at each visit to check for normal growth of the baby. For most women, the top of the uterus reaches the umbilicus (belly button) by about 20 weeks of pregnancy. It then goes approximately one centimeter higher per week until the end of pregnancy (about 40 weeks). Hope that helps! Dr. B.

How do you clean your belly button?

The technique for cleaning a navel depends on the type of debris that is loading the navel and if the navel is convex or concave (outie or innie). If you are encountering common navel lint, you should be able to purge a concave navel digitally. Now, that does not mean you should stick your computer in your navel, that simply means that your fingertip should be enough to sweep the lint out. In stubborn cases, you might consider enlisting the aid of a fellow navel cleaner to assist. Cooperative navel hygiene is a strong bonding activity. High pressure air (greater than 30 psi) should be avoided as should high pressure steam. Ensure that you do not use sharp objects. Avoid prolonged picking at your navel because you might accidentially un-knot your navel. If you have ever seen what an unknotted balloon does when you release it, that should give you cause for concern.
