Random pregnancy question

Posted by Lissa on May 28, 2009

Why is it that being pregnant makes your belly button poke out?  Like, visibly-so?  Is that only if you have an outtie?  Or does that happen even if you have an innie?  Does it turn inside-out?

A rather-pregnant co-worker got into the elevator today and it was all I could do to keep from reaching over and poking my finger at the protrusion — after all, it poked at me first.  It was truly like she’d stuffed an over-full beach ball under her shirt and the air spout was jutting out.  Doink!  The thingie was practically waving at me.  But I didn’t poke it back because that would be very bad manners, as well as unprofessional.  Also, I’ve never actually been arrested and I’d like to keep it that way.

This very interesting discussion is brought to you by my recent discovery that people were taking bets at my wedding on how quickly I’d start popping out mini-Lissa’s and mini-Mikes. 

(Note to Jenny — it’s not gonna be Q3 next year.  Sorry, but it’s just not.  That would mean that Mike and I were knockin’ boots around Christmastime.  You *do* remember how psychotic and stressed and tearful I get that time of year, right?)

    The belly button pops out for the same reason Butterball puts those little pop-outs on their turkeys … means things are almost done!
