belly buttonsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
I thought that when everyone was born their stomach was actually just wide open. Then the doctor would take your stomach, put a twist tie on it, like the ties on bread, and your parents decided if they wanted you to be an innie or an outtie.
If you were going to be an innie, the doctor would just poke in your belly button! This lead me to think that if I wasn't careful, my stomach would just unwind and all my blood and organs would fall out!!
when I was about four, my daddy used to tell me that my belly button was a seed under the skin. I used to try as hard as I could to push it into my stomach so you couldnt see it.
When i was younger my friend told me that since i was a gilrl that i had a baby growing inside of me. and that if i pushed my belly button it would stop breathing and die. i beleive that theory for a long time until i relised it wasnt true S:
I used to live next to two girls who had red hair and a ton of freckles. When we went over their house for a pool party I would see them in their bathing suits. They had these huge outies that actually scared me! I thought up until I was 14 that redhaired girls with freckles had outies.
I remember being slightly confused and maybe a bit jealous that my 2 younger brothers had 2 belly buttons...while I only had one. I wish my parents had explained the difference between males and females a bit better... because then I would have known that the second belly button was a penis! I'm not sure why I thought it was a belly button...it was just the only logical explanation in my young mind!
I have an innie belly button.When I was a kid,I thought the little bit of skin in it was a baby inside me sticking his finger out,and he'd be born when i was "grown up".
when i was about 8, i thought if i pressed in other peoples belly buttons they would explode. when i went on a field trip the beach i would run up, touch someones belly button and run away, then i tried to do it harder until the teacher yelled at me.
my grandpa had a hole in his belly button from surgery that didnt heal and it looks a lot like a piercing hole so he always told us it was pieced and would put grandma's earing in as a gag. me and my sister loved it and grandma would get embarassed.
When I was 7, I asked my mother what a bellybutton is, and she told me that the bellybutton was a little hole that would open if you weren't well mannered; and a little after she told me that, I freaked out, since my belly button sticks out, and then I asked my mother what happens when the hole opens all the way, and she told me that a little fairy would pop out from the hole, who was resting in the stomach, and the fairy would cast a spell that gave you freckles.
After she told me that, I was afraid of kids with feckles, but then I found how silly it was..
when i was 6 i went with my little sister (5) and my uncle and aunt fishing. my aunt had a belly button ring (that she didnt wear around kids) and when we weren't looking, she put a fish ook into the hole and told us that our uncle wasn't good at fishing and that it accidentally got stuck their. my sister was terrified but i pulled up my shirt when he would cast off (i wanted a belly button ring) my sister still is afraid of fishing.
i used to think that people with innies and people with outies hated each other. i had a weird sort of outie belly button and my mom said it was an inbetweenie. i thought it was up to me to solve the differences. i even tried to push peoples belly buttons in.
when i was little, i had my ears pierced with a needle and i didnt remember it hurting, so i believed belly button piercings, wut i wanted all along, didnt hurt. i had an outie and since i didnt know where it went in, i placed it at the top of my outie and pushed through. it hurt
i used to think you were either born wit a belly button ring. i was horrified when my sister came home with a belly button ring that she didnt have when we were kids. i thought that was why mom yelled at her :)
When i was 6 i used to belief that if you put your finger into your belly button deaply you go to sleep for 10 days and you wake up with a baby inside of you. Now i still kinda belife it and have an irrational fear of people poking my belly button. i dont want to be pregnet. And im 14 and a boy and have a fear of belly button poking. how embarising.
I used to think that If someone touched my bellybutton I wouldn't be able to breathe. And even to this day I don't let anyone touch my belly button,.
i used to believe that if you poked your belly button you would become invisible
one time when i was about 4 i poked my belly button then ran outside in the nude, until the girl next door (about 9 at the time) told me that she could still see me. I ran back inside very quickly.
I used to believe that men urinated out of their belly buttons. I even tried it once.
I came to believe after a few trips to the beach when I was little, that only little kids had outie belly buttons, and when you grew up, it would go in. I really freaked out when mine didn't go in after a few years, and my friends all had innie belly buttons!
I went to visit my best friend at her home a few years back. We were getting ready to go to dinner and I proclaimed that I wanted to change into a dress because my pants were making my belly button hurt. My friend asked me "What does it feel like?" I replied, "Like a pinch I guess." She then ran over to me looking at my belly button. Puzzled I asked her what she was doing- This is what she told me " Kevin (Her fiance) told me that when they cut your cord they put in one stitch, I already pulled mine out-Looked like on little thread. Somtime if its in there to long it starts to hurt, I bet yours needs to be pulled out." I nearly hit the floor laughing. I told her that I had already pulled mine out and that wasnt the cause of my pain. -I didnt have the heart to tell her. Sad thing is.... We are alot older than the age of a person you would expect to her this from lol
My little sister who is now in her mid-twenties is not the brightest star in the sky. When we were in our early twenties I saw that she had some dirtyness in her belly button and asked her what it was and why it was so dirty. She said, " Oh that's just my umbilical cord." Apparently, she never washed out her belly button thinking that the nastiness was her umbilical cord. How gross is that?!
