I also found out I couldn't bend over and pick anything up with the baby on my belly. Another odd observation was that I found myself attracted to other pregnant woman like a magnet and wanted to compare my belly to theirs. I didn't want anyone touching mine and thankfully no one tried, but I think mine was too stiff compared to the real thing. I will post the photos tomorrow, but there is one with me and two other pregnant women, like we were in some secret club or something.
I was most amused today running into two friends out and about today who are both aware of the project but still expressed some degree of surprise about seeing me pregnant. I was hoping all day to see someone I knew just to gauge their reaction. I'm pleased.
I'm was also very pleased to take the damn thing off. I can't imagine nine months of that thing on me plus the weight of a baby sitting on my bladder. How do you ladies do it???? I'm glad I had the experience for a day and that was enough for me.
I'll write more later as I post the photos.
