so this is not the greatest but it’ll do, 30 week bump shot my husband took of me. I noticed there’s still a flat spot and my belly button has not popped yet.
I did some reading online and it says that this could most likely mean my little man is facing up instead of towards my spine. Last ultrasound he was still breech but has anyone else had a “sunny side up” baby? I hear it makes for a longer and much more painful labor. Crossing my fingers he flips over in the next 10 weeks!

My sister didn’t have the belly button pop with any of her pregnancies and the babies were all in the normal position. Go by what the ultrasounds say instead of what Dr Google says.

my belly button was flat but never popped out.
if you are worried about breach. there are a lot of yoga moves you can do, also check out spinning babies website, or see a chiropractor who specializes in webster technique

komatsuPC600 : my baby is in position at 36 weeks and my belly button still hasn’t popped. I rather hope it doesn’t, actually, though it’s growing like a tiny volcano. You’ve got time, and there are techniques to help the baby flip (with your medical professional!) if need be, though I hear it’s uncomfortable at best.

Hey there, I’ve never been pregnant, but my mom has told me my whole life that I was a sunny side up baby. She said when I kicked, it felt like I was going to explode out of her abdomen (she compared it to the movie Alien…). If you feel this sensation, it may indicate that your baby is facing up. During labor, her obstetrician flipped me over and delivered me vaginally without complication.

sparkosity : that’s awesome to hear. And that’s a good description haha
skunktastic : I’m up for anything they suggest. My one friend wasn’t aware and her baby got stuck and had to be vacuumed out so I was looking to avoid that lol
redmango : ultrasound does show him facing out and breech as of two weeks ago

To answer your sunny side up question: I had a sunny side up baby 10.5 years ago. The labor was long! I pushed for 3 hours. Epidural did not for pain, just made my left leg numb. I didn’t feel the urge to push just horrible back pain.
However, after all was said and done he is totally worth it! I had a second baby 2 years later and labor was a breeze!

My belly button never popped – thank god.
My baby was in the right position my entire pregnancy

I’m 33 weeks with baby in correct position, and still have a flat spot and my belly button hasn’t popped out. I wouldn’t worry too much about the aesthetic things, but maybe ask your doctor if there is anything you can do to get him out of breech position. I think there are a lot of different techniques you can try now!
