When did your belly button 'pop'?

Mine has s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d at 26+2 but has not popped yet, and the thought of it stretching so much that it ends up turning inside out makes me want to boak.

I am hoping against hope that it stays in.
But will it?
When did yours pop out?
Or did it stay in?

Think it depends what shape you end up towards the end. I'm all front so very little sideways pull grin. Bellybutton is shallower (I can see the bottom now) but still very much an innie.

I'm 26+3 and mine is completely flat (and rather horrible) it used to go in really far!

I will be sick if mine pops out, you are not alone smile fingers crossed too smile

if it does pop out, does it happen suddenly or gradually?!

I know that the last couple of weeks the change in tummy shape each day is seriously noticeable. Especially when the bump drops when baby starts engaging. I imagine it might be a little each day, and one morning - pop - there it is, an outie?

I'm 37+ 3 bebys head has engaged, and I've still got an innie. about 2 month ago it was like a cave. When I wore a tight top, there was a noticeable absence in my belly button region.

Didn't with DD, and I am 33 weeks today with number 2 and not popped yet.

Mine didn't with 3 previous DC - I would quite like an outie this time but it does make me feel a bit yuk if I think about it!

My bb stayed an innie, but it was an extreme innie at the start. It too ended up like a cave - a big dimple in a tight top. Sometimes babe's knee would poke it from the inside and it would almost go pop, but never did.

Belly got very big, and after DD was born, my innie had skin peeling off it - I think it was skin - but it was ver disgusting - maybe with an outie you don't get the skin thing. <boak> lots of my friends had this yukky skin coming off their innies.

My linea niger (the black line on my belly) lasted for months and months after DD was born as well(dark skin anyway).

Good luck to all the mummies to be.

I am 35 weeks, mine is an innie sometimes and an outie at other times ATM! confused It has been like this for about the last week. Weird.

beanlet Thu 09-Sep-10 18:24:32

Never. Some people just have VERY inny innies.

PickleSarnie Thu 09-Sep-10 18:41:50

I'm 38+3 and still and innie. It's much flatter but shows no sign of popping.

I normally have a " just barely" innie. I swear mine popped at 12 weeks. I'm about 20 weeks now and the thing shows through multiple layers of clothes. At first, it was a little tender, but not anymore. People keep telling me that it's cute...

I'm kind of starting to like it.

Yesterday, at 24+6.

Giddyup Fri 10-Sep-10 09:21:26

33 and its half in half out- grim! it went totally out last time, but popped back nicely smile

yellowflowers Fri 10-Sep-10 09:25:00

I'm really hoping mine doesn't. Am fat though and it is very deep!

planner26 Fri 10-Sep-10 10:03:23

Oh go mine popped at 12w! DP won't go anywhere near it!

Miffster Fri 10-Sep-10 10:27:19

I'm quite encouraged to discover it is not mandatory for the thing to turn inside out.

-sends a quick prayer up-

Mine always stayed in. Praise the Lord! It was the ONE thing I was worried about pre pregnancy!

Sarahlou8 Fri 10-Sep-10 16:18:29

Mine popped out about two weeks ago - I'm 34 weeks.
I hate it. I either wear floaty patterned tops to hide it, or put a piece of microporous tape over it!!

Mine's not popped out (I'm only 16 weeks after all!), but this thread echoes my fears, for an unusual reason. Years back when Scary Spice had her first baby she did a magazine interview in which she described how grim it was when her belly button popped. I was years off even thinking about having a baby when I read that but the image has stuck with me, so much so that I'm cleaning mine with cotton buds constantly now I am pg, just in case it does suddenly goes 'pop'...!

CoupleofKooks Fri 10-Sep-10 18:05:11

mine has never gone back! i am even quite slim (well, maybe not round the tummy)

sophieandbelly Fri 10-Sep-10 18:17:22
