Has your belly button changed during pregnancy? If you’ve noticed that it’s a little different lately, you’re not alone.
“Is anyone getting to the point where your belly button looks like it will pop? I noticed the past few nights, mine is sticking out and I could pop it with a pin. I feel so much bigger at night, and it is amazing what happens to our bodies. My kids think it is so funny that my belly button pops out like that!” – Jennifer “Mine is half popped out, literally. The top half of it is completely popped out, no lip or anything — it’s way out there about a quarter inch. Maybe a little more. The bottom is still flush against my belly though. This looks especially funny because I don’t have a big pregnant belly yet, just my pooch that I’m so proud of!” – Jenny
“Not quite yet, but it’s trying really hard! It’s completely flat, and there’s a little lip at the top that is sticking out. My husband is totally grossed out! I guess he’ll have to get over it, because he’s got three and a half more months, and it will only pop out farther!” – Elyse
“Well, mine is going to go any day now, but with my other pregnancies it has always popped out so it is not weird to me. My husband is totally freaked, but he has a weird phobia about belly buttons anyway. It is so funny when I laugh, sneeze or cough. It pokes out kinda like if I had a hernia.” – Momee44
“I was an ‘innie’ last week, and then one morning I woke up as an ‘outie.’ I even had to remove my belly button ring because it looked so funny.
