Before getting pregnant, I never imagined how it would totally throw your body a curve ball! It's almost something out of a sci-fi movie. Feeling another little person kick and headbutt you from the inside is hard to imagine if you have not felt it before. Little Phoebe is quite the active thing. She'll probably end up like her dad - constantly on the move, even in her sleep. But with each passing day, motherhood becomes a little more real and my belly seems to become even a little bit bigger. I'm finally starting to get pregnancy questions from people I don't know well, like "When are you due?" "Is it a boy or a girl?" "Can I touch your belly?" This belly touching will take some getting used to. I'm only at 21 weeks now. I can't imagine how many people will want to feel my belly when I'm in my eighth and ninth month. It is helping me get over my remaining personal space issues that is for sure. But for the record, if some person I've never met before asks the belly question, the answer is definitely no!
