Please visit a surgeon. If it is truly an umbilical hernia it can be cured only with surgery. Cycling should not increase the size of ur hernia. May help in weight . Brisk walk along with low calorie and high fibre diet is a better option for weight loss. U can concieve. No problem. But whether ur hernia will get worse during pregnancy...u have to find out from a surgeon.
