Umbilical hernia while pregnant

mcoyleinukraine posted:
I have an umbilical hernia, which I had been worried about becoming incarcerated during the past 5 months. I had been wearing a protective belt/wrap to prevent against that. I am now 6 weeks pregnant with our fourth child, and wondering what I might expect with the months ahead? I am really hoping that I won't need surgery, especially since our family is living outside the US. Thank you for any help you can offer!
