I must admit I now started to draw some attention to myself and my belly and I actually find it to be a lot of fun! It’s very enjoyable and everybody is very kind 🙂
I now started to feel my belly and it’s in the way when I want to tie my shoes or lean forward for a longer while. And the baby girl is kicking almost constantly which is very pleasurable most of the time, with the exception being when I really want to sleep!
Also, I weighed myself and I gained 11 kg (24 pounds) which is quite a lot for somebody whose pregnancy a nurse found surprising at 5 months!
