angles & innies

When I showed my grandfather my belly via skype a few days ago he said: i gseh nüüt. I see nothing.

(The Muffin, 22 weeks.)

If I had only the above photo to go by, I’d say I see nothing, too, and then I’d go buy my pregnant self a high-calorie snack.

But it must be a matter of camera angle, because this was taken the next day:

(See? The Muffin at 22w1d is taking up space after all.)

The Muffin likes to grow overnight, and every morning I wake up a bit bigger. It’s really amazing. I saw my sister a few days ago and she could hardly stop staring. She said something like: Ah! Your belly! Nobody told me! Wow! (She knew I was pregnant, I suppose she wasn’t quite prepared to see me pregnant.)

I’ve been reading that my innie will most likely turn into an outie at some point during this second trimester and it’s not a pleasing thought. Belly buttons are revolting not my cup of tea freak me out, especially my own. Having a protruding navel for months is not a pleasing thought, I don’t care that it will go back to its normal position after birth. So give me some hope: Did you get to keep your innie during your pregnancy? Or do you know anyone who did?
