Belly Button Removal
I have always liked my belly button. In fact, I liked it so much that when I was 20-years-old my college roommate and I got ours pierced together. As such, it was a long dreaded day when my pregnancy would progress far enough to undo what doctors had so artfully created on my birth day. Now might be a good time to note that I have a long-standing irrational fear of “out-ies”. (I’m sorry if you have a outie and I’ve just offended you, but I did qualify it by saying it was irrational.)
It’s no secret that belly buttons change during pregnancy and they have to, I mean the rest of you is so why should they be exempt? The pregnant belly button makes the slow and steady migration from cute “in-ie” to either a flat belly button-less look or an “out-ie”. For me, this migration reached the break even point with the rest of my belly in Week 21 of my pregnancy and I was not amused. Luckily this is just a temporary state and my belly button should return to its pre-pregnancy condition after the baby is born!
