DD was breech and during my pregnancy I always had an inny belly button. she was diagnosed at 36 weeks.
My friend had an undiagnosed breech baby and her belly buton was also an inny.
She has just had a successful VBAC and this time her belly button was an outy. So thus my friend has developed the breech baby inny outy theory.

So far(at 35 weeks) my belly button is still an inny. Three separate people have told me that this baby is head down. I have a scan on thursday to check it out

wondered if the inny outy theory rang true for anyone else?

A bit of fun really It's probably more to do with body shape and weight gain..

DD was breech from 28 weeks till she was born (41+3, planned home breech birth). My belly button popped out....

I think my baby is breech (was a couple of weeks ago) or possibly now transverse, def not head down anyway and I have an inny at 35 weeks!

I had an inny for DTDs and DD3 (well it went flat but didn't become a sticking outy).

DTD1 was vertex
DTD2 was transverse at labour onset - delivered breech
DD3 was vertex.

One breech, one not, and one yet to be determined (35 weeks). Inny every time.

Mine has been an inny for all 3 pregnancies, and all three were head down. But then I have a wierdly deep belly button so I'm probably not normal.

Well today a fourth person told me (without a scan)that the baby is head down and I still have an inny.

i think it is also to do with placenta position

I have placenta at the front with both PGs and an inny belly button

Baby has just turned from breech, and belly button has just popped out.

Rubyslippers the consultant today was talking about how babies like to lie in particular positions beacuse of the shape of the uterus.
