Think I have one, very painful. I had one as a baby and I'm now very overweight so probably more prone to another one. Anyone have any experience with this? Did you need surgery?

I had one in my groin as a baby as well and now have another in my belly button since having kids (I'm not overweight so don't think that makes too much of a difference, I think sometimes your just prone to them). It's not incredibly painful at the moment and the doctor thinks surgery shouldn't be necessary unless it starts to interfere with my life which it doesn't so I'm going to leave it for the time being. Is it always painful or just when using your stomach muscles?

Yes. I had emergency surgery at 19 weeks pregnant. If it is painful and won't go back in go to nearest a and e as it can be life threatening.

Yes you should. If it involves your bowel it needs to operated on.
I wanted to wait until the morning as my dh was away. They said i would be dead if i waited. I was 19 weeks pregnant and it was risky to operate but i had no other choice as it had cut off the circulation to my bowel. I had no trouble with mine for 4 years and all of sudden it was crazy painful. A hell of a lot More painful than giving birth.
It much better to get fixed before it is a emergency.
Ds3 was born with one but has no pain so he will get his fixed next year after he turns 2.

If its painful definitely seek medical advice asap.
If its not, I wouldnt stress too much. I have one, have had since after the birth of my DS2, 3.5yrs ago. It isnt painful at all though. My dr is happy to leave it for now as I am absolutely terrified of the idea of surgery.
