Thanks for your question.

Most of the time, they fix the hernia after you deliver the baby. I had a friend that had one and she carried twins with a very small frame which caused the hernia and then after the babies were born the doctors fixed the hernia. She suffered from abdominal pain but nothing that she couldn't handle.

Here is more information about umbilical hernias from parents.com which details similar stories and you can read about them here http://www.parents.com/pregnancy/my-body/aches-pains/pregnancy-umbilical-hernia/.

The Mayo Clinic also provides more information about umbilical hernias and you can read about it here http://mayoclinic.com/health/umbilical-hernia/DS00655.

Please keep us updated on your pregnancy.
