When does your tummy button ping out?!

Post by rachel r » Thu Nov 20, 2003 8:17 pm

Hi everyone<br><br>My tummy button is still as it always was - i thought it would have pinged out by now? Im 26 weeks tomorrow - maybe Im just a slow coach!<br><br>Bought Herbie (who will be Max) a v. cute little outfit yesterday in Next, couldn't resist and although i know it;ll probably be in the sale after christmas, i couldn't take the chance it might get sold out! Little beige dungarees with a bear on the front and a long sleeved t-shirt with a giraffe on one cuff and a teddy on the other. Its for up to 14kg, so unless im having an absolute bruiser, they should be ok for him!<br><br>Hope your all ok and your tummy buttons are pinging out as i type!<br><br>By the way, do any of you ever hear a click-clacking noise in the distance? Well, that'll be the army of people my mum's lined up for knitting - its the needles going at 90 miles an hour - poor child will be in knitted gear until he's about 18!<br><br>LOL<br><br>Rachel<br>x

Hi Rachel,<br><br>Even though I carried two decent size twins (6lb 2 and 6lb 4) to 39 weeks, my tumy button never popped out so don't worry about it too much!<br><br>And we had no 'freshly' knitted stuff so obviously your little one is making up for my two.<br><br>Jules

Rachel<br><br>Like Jules my tummy button never popped out either!<br>i guess they do or they don't. a friend once told me that if they haven't popped out by 24 weeks then they wont - but who knows!<br><br>Good luck anyway<br>Eve<br>xx

Hi Rach<br><br>I am now 31wks mine as changed a little and it does have a little bit of a lip at the top but its not come out properly. My Mom always says to me that if it stays in its a boy and if it pops out its a girl (another one of those old wives tales I reckon) how are you apart from asking about your belly button?<br><br>Love<br>Shell.<br>-x-

Hi everyone - I'm 24 weeks and mine hasnt popped out yet!! I hope it doesnt cos I dont like it when belly buttons show through clothes - if mine pops out I'll put some masking tape over it or something !!<br><br>I am fighting against buying clothes at the moment cos I think I just might as well leave it til after christmas (due 17 March). Seen so many gorgeous things - in Mothercare there's a range called "Humphrey's Corner" and there's this gorgeous little cream velvet suit with an elephant sweeping up leaves on it - AAHHHH!! it's just SSOOOOOOOOOOO cute - it might be Alices "coming home" outfit!!<br><br>Lots of love to you all and your bumps. Jo. XXX<br><br>

Hi Jo<br><br>I also like the items in Mothercare with the elephants, I did buy the little one a baby gro in that and it;s lovely. I am just deciding what I will need to put in my hospital bag.<br><br>Jules I totally agree with these saying some of them do make you laugh, I don't want my belly button to pop but if it does it does, but I don't reckon it will now.<br><br>Love<br>Shell.<br>xx

Hi girls<br><br>Thanks for your replies. Saw the midwife today for my 6 month check (!) and heard Herbie's little heart. I'm carrying really low (no sign of a bump above my belly button, its literally all below) and I asked her if that was normal and she said the baby is still in breach which is why im low, and to prepare myself for a c-section. Not thinking about it, or worrying for that matter, as I've another 14 weeks, and Herbs may well have moved by then. Lovely to hear the heart and think i will now hire a doppler so Rob and granparents and aunts etc can have a listen too.<br><br>I've seen the humphreys corner stuff, its so so cute!! Going to mothercare tomorrow for a little mooch (and probably spend!)<br><br>Lots of love to you all!<br><br>Rachel<br>x
