In the case of some women, there is a defect or a hole in the abdominal wall before pregnancy. If there is excess weight gain during the course of pregnancy, it can go on to put too much amount of stress on the defective area or the abdominal wall which may cause the hernia to be all the more noticeable. Once the hole goes on to become larger in size, then the tissue can pass through it, the hernia is going to become all the more powerful and a bulge may go on to appear in the umbilical area. It is suggested that in such situations you go on to wait till your pregnancy is over before going on to repair the umbilical hernia. But on the other side of the coin, if this hernia goes on to become incarcerated, which literally means that the tissue is being trapped in the defective area, and it cannot be pushed back in.
