Bellybutton fun!

I noticed this weekend when I was trying on some clothes that the hole my bellybutton ring was in was getting stretched. So I decided that it was time to take my little friend out.

I've never taken my ring out in the 11 years I've had it. It's amazing how naked my poor button looks now when I look down at it. Really, really strange!

Phew...I thought this was going to be about bellybutton-popping, which makes me uncomfortable.

I'm sure after 11 years of bellybutton ringdom it must look strange to you. Just think, soon enough there will be no ring, and an outtie belly button! Ew.

I am belly button phobic. The pregnant ones make me sick to my stomach. I hate the bumps they make in shirts, like on TomKat. (Well, I just hate them, period.) I can hardly stand to touch my own.

With that said, I got mine pierced years ago. EROTIC. LOVE IT. Must be some S&M thing.

well, it's worth it for what you've got inside. Will you get it re-pierced afterwards, do you think?

I have a big ol tatoo on my abs that is now strained to insanely large proportions. My husband loves to watch it grow. Phred's a little cutie!

Can they stitch the hole after you give birth? I think a friend of mine (with a belly button piercing) mentioned that as a possibility . . .

T- it's definitely worth it! I hope I didn't come across as complaining - that wasn't my intent at all. Amusement is really my overriding reaction!

I think if it closes up while I don't have the ring in I'll just leave it be - I'm not wearing quite the same outfits in my 30's as I was in my 20's, so there isn't really much point anymore. But if it doesn't close I'll probably put it back in. Remind me of my "wilder" days :-)

Ouch!

That sounds painful. I don't have one but I like them.

If I had known that you had a ring, I would have asked to see it!
