Fun Things To Do With Your Pregnant Belly!
Were you proud of your pregnant belly? I was in the beginning, especially with my first child, not so much at the end, just days away from delivery, but it was still nice to capture all the memories and look back at them now.
While I’m not pregnant now and not planning to be again, I do remember that special time (not counting the morning sickness days) when I was fascinated by my growing belly. What reminded me and inspired this post is a friend who is about to give birth any day now. Check out this fun photo.
I know, they are too cute, right? Yes, that is really her belly. She said, “I just wanted to have fun with the pregnant belly. I'm not sure I will ever be pregnant again so I want to document my belly growth every month or so, and I wanted to include my husband as well. It is amazing to me to see my belly. It literally looks like I have a ball stuffed under my skin...so crazy. I think the pictures are great and it will be fun to look back at them later in life.”
She also did this one about a month ago!
While not all of us will look like we just have little balls stuffed under our skin there are a lot of fun ways to embrace your pregnant belly.
I took this one in Hawaii at sunset!
For both of my pregnancies I took photos every month in the same outfit in front of the same wall so I could show the progression. Here I am in the first trimester. I can’t believe I thought I had a belly then.
Here I am at the end of my pregnancy.
I was able to see the gradual changes month to month and kept them in a scrapbook. I’m glad I did. I think documenting your pregnancy is something very special and even though you may not always feel like it, I don’t think you’ll ever regret taking too many photos.
