belly ring and pregnancy

I' m 8 weeks along and have a belly ring/piercing. Many people have told me this is dangerous as skin can tear when your belly grows. Is this true? If and when should I remove the ring?

It is best to remove it as your belly will stretch as it grows.

Hi there,

yes, I have heard as the belly grows the ring will be pushed out... I have removed mine just to be safe and will put it back when I' ve had my baby...

Have a good w' end!
