21 weeks, 4 days pregnant
My belly button is creeping towards the surface.
What was once a total “innie” now has every bit totally visible. It is a weird sensation to see so much of your belly button, especially when you never saw inside it before.
I’m fine with it stretching out completely, and reaching the surface. But I’m not as cool with it popping outward. I have only ever seen one “outie” in my life, and it was on the stomach of a very, very overweight family friend. It horrified me.
To make matters more frightening, my mom told me when she was pregnant, she used to tape a penny over her “popped” belly button to keep it from showing through her shirt.
Is it wrong that the idea of doing that totally freaks me out???
