do you believe in the belly button timer?

that its like a turkey timer, it pops when it's done. i never did but i'm almost 36 weeks and my belly button has become convex, not popped, but it used to be an innie and its rounded outward. i'm thinking it will be popped within 2 weeks. so do you believe in this myth?

  • myths have been confirmed. i mean i guess it depends on the size of the woman as well. i think a skinnier woman would pop like that cause she has less skin

  • lol I think it is just a myth. My belly button never popped out with my first. I have a really deep belly button though, it got pretty close though. I think it really has to do with body frame too and how deep your belly button is to begin with.

  • I don't believe in that I believe when the oven is bundle of joy is done cooking then the juice will flow and the oven will shut down. The baby is the only one that knows when s/he is ready to be done cooking.

  • if a myth was proved correct then it is not a myth

    a traditional or legendary story, usually concerning some being or hero or event, with or without a determinable basis of fact or a natural explanation, esp. one that is concerned with deities or demigods and explains some practice, rite, or phenomenon of nature.
    stories or matter of this kind: realm of myth.
    any invented story, idea, or concept: His account of the event is pure myth.
    an imaginary or fictitious thing or person.
    an unproved or false collective belief that is used to justify a social institution.

  • I was pretty small when I got pg with my ds, and I was bigger when I got pg with my dd (my ds was 6 mos old, so I wasn't back fully into shape).

    This didn't happen with me with either kid.

  • Only the top half of my belly button popped and that was around 35 weeks. It looked silly.
