Strange belly button

This may be a ridiculous question but...I'm 24 weeks and for the last few weeks my belly button has gone from deep, to flat to poking out, especially when I'm lying down. All fine, but after 10 mins in the bath, I glanced down and it is back to its deep normal self! Is this normal bb behaviour?

sounds pretty normal to me. admittedly my belly button didn't start changing until the last 3 or so weeks (im 38 weeks tomorrow) first thing in the morning it's definitely deeper and doesn't change much until i start moving around and doing bits around the house or go out when my belly definitely drops and my belly button starts poking out a bit more than early on in the day.

Yep, it will poke out more if baby is putting pressure on it, so whenever you or it are in certain positions

my baby's bum is pushing just above my belly button grin it's little legs are tucked round to my left and every time it stretches out its bum gets in the way. got me a little twerker alreadyshock

Mine pushes out but I have a hernia umbilica, it can get extremely painful at times especially when baby is pushing against it.

Thanks for the reassurance smile, I feel like my belly is growing bigger by the second, would be really happy if my belly button stated an innie!

my bump has been pretty small most of the way through, then dh looked at me today and smiled through saying to me 'god you're huge' grin did make me laugh, luckily my hormones didn't get the better of me and I've been in a good mood. I feel huge too! yep I too rub where my baby pokes out and it's like we have a little fight between the two of us, I gently massage and rub my belly, he/she kicks their way back giving a bum poking out smile

I'm 28+4 and my belly button is a constant source of amusement for DP. It's gone from being quite wide and very deep to being smaller than a 5p and probably about as shallow. I'm very worried about it popping out. Does it go back to being an Innie after birth? And is anyone else's really tender? People keep trying to touch it and I keep going bananas!!

The one thing in the world that freaks me out is an outie belly button. My perfect,round,not too deep belly button was half flat half out by 20 weeks. I couldn't bear it!! And to make matters worse if I sneezed I could feel it pop out even more. DD is now two months old and thank god it's back to normal!

Arrggghhhhh!! That's my biggest fear! I'm so happy to hear that it goes back to normal. I'd be so sad if I had an outie forever. I love my innie smile
