The star of bellybutton

I’ve been watching my belly a lot recently. It’s fun watching Little Elvis do his calisthenics, especially at night when I can expose my belly and watch it wiggle without cover.

The other night while Little Elvis was getting his usual workout, I noticed that the skin around my bellybutton looks different from the skin on the rest of my stomach.

I have an inny and it’s still just a little bit in. I’m kind of hoping it will stay the way it is now, because I think it would hurt for my bellybutton to poke out.

Back to my topic, the skin that used to be in is pinkish and it’s shaped in a star pattern around my bellybutton. It’s also hairless. It kind of looks like a pale pink star tattoo.

I don’t think there’s anything wrong. It seems to be the bellybutton skin that has never seen the light of day.

Have any of you noticed this?

I've notice the same thing with my belly button. I'm 30 weeks, although I'm apparently measuring 34 weeks. My belly button is hanging on by a mere thread and I keep bumping it into things, which kind of hurts! I'm just surprised at the sensitivity of that area.

It hurts? I'm sorry. It seems to me like it would, but I wasn't sure. Maybe the rest of mine will stay in.
