I love the popping belly button! Fun and amusement for everyone:) I'm glad I'm not the only one on the verge of popping.

Mine popped at like 12 weeks! I hate it!

my belly button is nowhere near popping, but I can't stand it being touched! My daughter loves to stick her fingers in it and I hate it! My belly button hasn't popped in any pregnancy so far. Near the very end it gets flat though. And even more irritated, I think I would not like it at all if it popped out.

I just noticed last night that my belly button is mid-pop. The top half is going outtie and the bottom half is still an innie. I'm an inbetweenie. LOL The popped belly button doesn't bother me, really, but the in-between stage is irritating... and I've got a 20-month old that likes to stick his fingers in my belly button, too. That could stop now!! :)

If you haven't had this, don't get it. It's wiping out my region right now and is highly contagious. I've never puked this much in my life...don't get me started on the "bad poops"...this is insane.



 

that so sucks. we all had that earlier in my pregnancy. it went around our house twice. puking and pooping while cleaning up after the 3 younger ones who couldnt make it farther than their bed or floor. it was awful. i couldnt even drink water. it had to be broth, only broth. i eventually got up to veggie soup. hope you get better soon!

 

 

belly buttons- mine doesnt pop out. i always wanted it to bc i thought it looked cute but then i heard how irritating it can be rubbing on your shirt. mine just flattens out. not in, not out, just flat. like i have no belly button. i will have to take a pic for you when it gets there so you can share in the weirdness. lol.

Haha...I'm an "inbetweenie" too! Top half CANNOT be hidden....a cami, tank, shirt PLUS the stretchy top part of my mat pants and the thing is STILL visible through all my clothing!

 

An unstoppable inbetweenie!

Does not deserve it's own thread, but must be said... I'm so freaking edgy! Everybody just CAN'T say the right thing. I don't even know what the right thing would be, but what everybody says to me (about anything) is NOT it!!! ARGH. It's not even a sensitive to DH thing, it's work and the students and the coworkers and just WHAT IS WRONG WITH ALL OF YOU? splat.gif(clearly its not them, it's me, but I'm still freakin so irritated!)

 

Okay, about belly buttons. I have the deepest innie imaginable. It can never be an outie - ever. At 40 weeks it was flatter, but still at least a few centimeters deep. At least I got to clean it out though! (eww, so gross and yet so funny at the same time). lol.gif

I hear you! I am sooooo close to snapping at everyone for everything. I'm trying to keep it under control but... really my DH is a saint to take the brunt of it.

 

I was even telling him today that I hope our neighbours start partying late in their trailer next to our kitchen window again soon (happened everynight last summer), so I can use some of my Grrrr for an actual real reason. I've decided this year I am not putting up with it anymore and am going to start complaining to their landlords and the bylaw guys as soon as it happens this year. I'm going to have a hard enough time getting enough sleep as it is this summer without being woken up at 2 with bad drumming and crappy music. I would have complained more last year but I really love their Mom/Grandma (yah - these aren't kids but a 50 year old man and his 21 year old son with no sense of respect for anyone). What makes it worse is that the old guy has some medication issues and took a hate on for us last year that led to me not feeling very safe in my home and having to start locking our doors all the time. Just yelling obsenities through the window and standing out front of our house staring/ glaring at it/us for long periods of time but...

 

We did make a report to the police and talked to his Mom about it, and it seemed to mellow out a bit but I worry about what will happen when we start complaining about the noise this year... This is a scary big guy and I am often alone here with ds. At least he seems a bit scared of my dog. Though another thing he did last year was throw old meat and bones from his freezer into the back corner of my yard last year (right next to the sandbox!!!) because he thought he should be 'nice' to my dog. What was really scary is that I was letting a neighbour's dog come and play everyday then. (My dog has some food issues when it comes to other dogs and if I hadn't found it before the neighbour's dog and KIDS came to my yard it could have been very serious) .

 

Man, now I'm all GRRRRR just thinking about it.

Ugh, I caught the boy's cold.  It's mostly just being all stuffed up.  But that with being so tired and having to mouth breathe this dry air is a little irritating!  I'm hoping it is as quick as it was for him!

Random rant of the day: WHY does my 3 yo son insist on waking up EARLY every day and having to POOP first thing?? I usually don't even know that he's up till I hear him yelling from the bathroom that he's "all done!!!!!!!!" which means my day begins EVERY morning with wiping poop off my 3 yo's bottom. ugh... I'm not mad/upset with HIM over it, I just would much rather deal with poop AFTER I've woken up a little.

Yeah, my three year old is driving me crazy with poop, too...except it's not about wiping first thing...it's that she WILL NOT tolerate her poops being flushed before her father has a chance to see them. redface.gif She is generally VERY satisfied with her poops an will call me to come see "Hey, HEY....MAMA...come see, this one is HUGE!!! Oh, god, it's STINKY MAMA, come here!!"  - and you know, staring at her poops is what I live for...so I come and see and make whatever comment will appease her while she nods, a self satisfied smirk on her face, arms crossed...tapping one toe. Then, always: "I can't wait for Dada to see. DO NOT flush this, DO NOT, Mama, OKAY!?? Don't pee on it, either. PLEASE do not mess around!" - now, this is not a big deal if it's 4 o'clock in the evening and her father is due home from work soon, but if this is a 9am BM, essentially what this child is asking me to do, is let her poop sit in the toilet for eight hours undisturbed. Yeah, needless to say, this is an ongoing issue.

 

ROTFLMAO.gifCan I just say....three is the BEST age. I love how they are still babies, but they have these adult sized attitudes and a very intense sense of exactly what suits them in their little brains. My DD is so much fun right now. I love that we don't "fuss" about things like shoes and "don't throw blocks" so much any more as things like "why can't I drive to the store, I want to...I will be careful" - you know? She feels like such a big person inside, I can tell....and she takes things more seriously now. It's wild...three has been a real trip! I can't believe she turns four so soon (on my due date, actually!).

My 3 yo will be 4 in May. He's definitely got an adult-sized mentality in his little 3 yo head! A couple weeks ago it was a drawn-out discussion of why he couldn't ride into town sitting straddling the open front driver-side window of the van... and why he had to sit in a carseat bc cowboys don't sit in carseats... and how old does he have to be to not ride in a carseat ... and, the most important thing, how old does he have to be to ride to town in the window? LOL I told him riding in the window was never a good idea, no matter the age, and he launched into a retelling of the Bible story of Eutychus and how he fell from the window bc he fell asleep bc Paul was preaching too long. I love, love, love that kid!! <3

Three is awesome.  So entertaining.  I love it!  And DH and I both love the stage around 1.5 when they are just starting to talk more and communicate and are so freaking adorable as they explore every aspect of the world around them.  It's nice to hear parents loving the ages and stage their children are at, instead of bitching about the "horrible" "terrible" ages I usually hear. :(

I love the ages and stages of young ones for the purity of their thoughts and way of being. They are so honestly and purely who they are, it's marvelous to watch their little personalities unfold like flowers.

 

I never understood the "complaining about terrible two's, three's" or whatever. Some things are tough about different stages and ages and some things are sheer joy...but that's true from cradle to grave! Every year of a persons life, they offer some positive and some negative to the "worldly mix". You don't hear people complaining about the "terrible 72's" - because old people get grouchy or whatever. It's life. People are complicated. At least the little ones are adorable while they're at it!

4 is enchanting! Just wait! And then 5 is luminous! These little people years are so precious, so insightful. I can't even express what I have learned from each of my kids when they were in this phase of life. My four year old is the wisest, sweetest little soul on the street.I say that and then my 22 month old says his first two word sentence, and my heart sings.  I love being a mama!

I'm just now catching up to the belly button popping thing.  My boyfriend made a good point.  My belly button never pops until I get right near the end.  He said it's like the little pop timer they put in turkeys and whole chickens.  His big joke is, "That's how we know the baby's done cooking.  The belly button pops, that means the baby's done!"  Of course, with how huge I am this pregnancy, all bets are off!
