Return of the Belly Button

A lot of weird things happen to your body when pregnant. Some things are more publicized than others, probably to ensure that the human race continues to propagate. :-) One of the changes that freaked me out the most was having my belly button pop out. I know - pretty irrational. But for some reason I felt vulnerable having the little guy sticking out when he should be sticking in. Maybe it stemmed from watching The Matrix too much. (Come on, I'm sure you remember the belly button scene.)


All of this gives you context to understand my relief of the past week as I noticed that my belly button is indeed returning to his "innie" state, just like everyone told me it would. I guess I had to see it with my own eyes to believe it.

P.S. Hmmm, I just realized I call my belly button a "he." Is there a literary term for assigning gender to a gender-neutral object?

LOL -- with my first pregnancy, I used to try to push it back in with band-aids. This time I just didn't care. =)

At first I was wondering why you had a lizard on your stomach. (However, I was going to commend you on your courage to reveal your tummy so soon!) That reference to the Matrix was a little creepy...especially since I can't stand to even touch my belly button!
