    Hey, I had my belly bar in throughout both of my last pregnancies and through labour. The midwifes at each appointment kept telling me i would have to take it our soon but i just bought a size 12 belly bar which is bigger and didnt have to take it out at all. Won't have to take it out with this pregnancy neither i hope!

    I just brought a pregnancy belly bar. Its soft flexible plastic and is about twice as long as a starard bar. I got mine from a local pericing shop for about 5 quid, but I think Argos sells them too.

    argos and all piercing shops sell flexible plastic amternity bars for under £5. i have had mine pierced for nearly 10yrs and it has gone through 2 pregnancies without being removed. there are 2/3 threads on here or pregnancy chat about them

    I had mine and I took it out at 14 weeks. I still have the hole, but no ring :)

    i have a plastic retainer in at the moment, i am just waiting for my flexible pfte wire to arrive. i can cut it to certain lengths and thread it with an included tool. it also doesnt let crusties stick to it. and i got it very cheap at bodyjewelryshop online. comes from the UK so i have to wait. i dont plan on taking any of my peircings out. i also have my nipples done.

    I took out my nipples, belly button, and lip. Lip for other reasons besides pregnancy... but in thinking about it, baby's grab at shiny things- a lip ring would be hard to manage and I know lots of people looked at me funny in the baby store with it. My nipples were sore and with growing I felt they needed to come out for my comfort as well as I want to breastfeed. My belly button I took out as well, cause it just looked ridiculous. I popped at 10weeks so I took it all out then, figured my baby was more important than the holes I put in my body... haha... although I loved them, I've had them for years so no major loss!
