My pregnant life is now 5 months. YEY!! Everything is going well so far.
Last weekend I’ve got maternity girdle from my grandmother and my anty. There is practice that 5 month pregnant-woman go to a shrine with maternity girdle to pray an easy birth on the day of dog which is a lucky day of childbirth. A dog’s delivery seems not so hard and Japanese people follow the example of it. They day comes every 12 days.
My anty already went to a shrine to pray for me, so I don’t have to go there myself. May 16 was the day of dog and I put maternity girdle on. This one has removable bands, so when I sleep, I take it out . This weekend I have an ultrasound ! I really hope I know the sex of baby.
