Well. It’s kinda hard to tell when I’m looking DOWN at my belly, so I didn’t think I was sticking out much. Then the other day we were waiting to cross the road, and I noticed my shadow. And yep, there’s a definite bump there. No pictures, because the camera batteries are nearly dead. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it. 😉
Oh, and the baby’s latest hobby? Dancing on my bladder. Not quite as uncomfortable as having a cat stand on it, but only because he/she is only 1/6 the size of Calico, and 1/12 the size of Biscuit. And the kicking is strong enough now that Darrin can feel it too, which he’s pretty happy about.
We’re just past 21 weeks now, or almost 5 months. 20 weeks is considered halfway, but given that first babies tend to come late, I figure 21 weeks is closer to half. And the 3 kilograms I lost in the first few weeks have all come back, and each one has brought a friend along. So I guess my net weight gain so far is only 3 kilograms, and I’m far from finished, I’m sure.
So in a nutshell, everything’s going well, nothing unusual happening. I’ve finally found some maternity clothes I can put up with, which is really good since even with the Belly Belt, my normal jeans feel a bit too tight in places.
