There are Lips Where my Belly Button Should Be (Nicole)

May 28, 2009

As I come towards the end of my pregnancy it surprises me that life is so fragile. I have seen my body grow from fat to another human being. However what takes my breath away is the loss of my bellybutton. It has not gone to being flat or popped out instead it sits in a strange stage looking like a pair of lips. My husband looks and says to me “your belly button reminds me of lips like a puffer fish.” I can honestly say I am jealous of those who’s belly buttons look perfectly flush or popped out.

    Hey, my belly button looked just like that when I was pregnant, and the good news is, it goes back to looking quite like its old self after pregnancy.

    I love your belly button. lol my belly button looked like the tied end of a balloon in the front and a pig snout on the side, because it never really flattened out. Love your button, it’s cute.

    My belly button did the same thing while pregnant, but I can assure you that it’s back to normal. :)

    I think you look beautiful by the way! :D
