Just wondering, I have an innie and it's starting to disappear the bigger I get, wondering at what stage does it pop out to an outie? Does this happen in all pregnancies? Also does it return to normal afterwards? Just a random thought....

Mine never fully popped out, just went totally flat. It's gone back in now, DD is 5 weeks old.

Mine started to come out at around 30 weeks and is now fully out at 36. I thought it would be unbearable. It's actually OK under clothes but when I'm being scanned or palpated they always go over it and I find that weird and uncomfortable. I don't think it happens to every single person - my mum didn't have it - but my midwife swears that everyone's goes back in after birth.

I'm cringing thinking about it already 🙈 Belly buttons gross me out! Just another thing in my body that's going to change lol.

Mine popped out pretty early on, it's kind of gone back in again now but not completely (I gave birth 3 weeks ago).

mine is still an innie at 37 weeks-I'm kind of disappointed!

With DC1 it popped out sometime in the 3rd tri, and much sooner with DC2. It was never a full 'out-y', more of a ski jump.
After each child was born it went back in fairly quickly (a week or two?), but left a cavernous hole for some months after. I could have lost a whole hobnob in there. It took much longer after DC2 to return to it's (almost) previous shape compared to after DC1.

My innie never popped for either DDs. Yours may not either

My innie was sticking out by 5 1/2 months with DD hmm but have always been quite lean and had very toned stomach muscles back then. It hasn't gone back to how it was before and is a semi now...cant make it's mind up! I expect it will pop out even earlier this time blush

Mine popped out. DP and I used to play with it all the time lol

35+4 and still an innie. Never popped out with DC1.

40+2 here and I no longer have a belly button, its completely flat and has been since about 32 wks. It's also gone numb. It's weird. If it wasn't for a small mole in the centre I'd no longer be able to locate it. It went through a very painful stage where I actually thought it might split but an industrial amount of bio oil seems to have saved the day!

35+5 and my innie is almost flush to the skin but not quite. Also, no linea nigra and no stretch marks. Although there’s still time for the stretch marks to appear!

I was wondering the same. Mines still similar as it's always been. And I'm 26 weeks but this eve I have the weirdest sensation like there's a direct pressure right at the button. But don't feel the same as when the baby is directly pushing on belly. I'm wondering if it's going to pop out soon lol x
Belly buttons cringe me out too lol

I was exactly the same as bobbie

Mine never popped infact i was still wearing a metal belly bar when i gave birth!

guest477337 Sat 02-Dec-17 01:41:41

My popped out when I was standing from sound 36vweeks. It also depended on how the baby was laying.

It's back to normal now and DS is nearly 2 weeks old.

I had an innie all the way through my first pregnancy. Now 35 weeks with my second baby and still have an innie!

Two pregnancies, never stopped being an innie. Got shallow, but never more than that.

Mrstobe90 Sat 02-Dec-17 21:48:33

I’ve always had a really deep innie and I’m 29 weeks now and it’s still an innie but barely lol. Give it a few more weeks and it’ll probably be an outie

Mine never popped out with my first. It disappeared completely instead!
