It doesn't seem likely that hernia in the tummy (parietal hernia) will give you any problems as long as the hernia can go back and doesn’t stick (incarceration).A hernia usually don't harm the baby directly in any way even if sticks. Probably it can harm the baby only indirectly by hurting the mother when the hernia becomes complicated with incarceration.
