  • My belly button never popped all they way out. It just got flat like it was even with my big ol belly. It varies from pregnancy to pregnancy, some people's belly buttons never pop out at all. You can become dialted early and not go into labor for awhile. I was dilated to 2 at 7mths and stayed there till the day I delivered. There is no sure way of knowing.

  • My belly button never popped out during either pregnancy. I don't think it has anything to do with the baby being ready, it's just how your body is....

  • I'm eight months (32.5 weeks) and mine hasn't poked out. I had a severe innie before I got pregnant, though, and I can see my belly button for the first time EVER in my life :D It's so awesome, I never knew what it looked like lmao. I'm not sure if mine will pop out. My mom has an innie too, and she said hers just got really flat when she was pregnant.

  • Mine never did with my first, and with my second, it kind of poked out about 4-5months along...strange, huh?

  • I'm 39-1/2 weeks and mine only sticks out when my baby pushes it with his feet. It kinda hurts so i'm absolutely fine if he doesn't do it... (when it pokes out it looks like a pig
