I think my belly button is about to pop by about the end of December, by my newbie guess (I have never been this pregnant before!) The uterus is about 2 cm above the button, and the button is shallower than I have ever seen it ( I have always been an innie)! it feels both fun and is also a confirmation that 'someone' changing my body from the inside out (and therefore exciting and a little scary)!

Anyone else want to share their experiences?

Mine will be popping this month, I think. Not yet though. And frankly I wouldn't mind if the tummy growth part slowed down a bit. I think it has, since I popped really early for some odd reason.

Mine didn't even really pop with ds - the top half kinda popped, the bottom half just got a little shallower. So I'm not expecting it to fully pop this time either.

It's doing something. dunno if it will pop or flatten...we will see. Probably by the first of the year it will have changed significantly

I have a deep 'innie' belly button and so, even though I was pretty big, mine never popped! It just flattened out! LOL That is probably what will happen again this time!!

Mine never really officially 'popped' in my first pregnancy. I do remember alot of itchy, tight skin around it at about this point last time (I guess I'm stretched out enough that won't happen this time ). I have a really deep belly button but it did get super shallow/fairly flat by the end. There was a few times that with shift in the baby's position that it would pop out (wow was that freaky!) but it wasn't like that all the time. My uterus is measuring a little behind (still within normal limits, and I'm sure on my EDD because of charting and early u/s) so I'm not really having any belly button issues yet. Its definitely shallower though!

This is my first pregnancy where my belly button fully popped (and it pretty much popped by 14 weeks!). With my other 2 (successful) pregnancies, it did the half pop thing (top half popped, bottom half kinda flattened out). I attribute my extreme poppieness to my separated ab muscles (it's pretty bad I think).

What is belly button "popping"? Never heard of this, i'm 38 weeks and my button is pretty flat. There was a short time when it was poking out sometimes, but it stays flat now. Can anyone explain?

*giggles* Well, given your screen name, I'd say that's an ironic post

Mine hasn't popped out yet (turned from an innie to an outie), though it's widened quite a bit....
