I had my belly button pierced for seven years and took it out approximately six months before becoming pregnant. I've heard that there is always the chance that the scar might "split" and create a nasty-looking line up your tummy. Have any of you had any experience with this or heard if this is true or not? I'm becoming more and more paranoid about it as my belly button keeps getting stretched tighter. I'm slathering on the stretch mark lotion every morning and every night, so I'm hoping that that will help with this too.
