Rockin’ the Bump

posted in: Pregnancy Shots, Rockin' The Bump 0 comments

40 weeks, I was thinking, at least 30 pictures. One a week.

I’m talking about the baby bump of course.

No, I did not have 30 weeks worth of baby bump belly shots. I had pictures for weeks 14, 15, 17, 23, 27, 30, 36 and 39. See the pattern? That of inconsistency and laziness?
I’m grateful I managed to get any shots in at all. I’ve only ever emailed these pictures to maybe two friends? And couple of relatives.
So of course I would want to show them off on my blog.
*Gulp*
Only because of this fabulous lady: Shell at Things I Can’t Say. She had a great idea of getting mamas out there to show pictures of themselves rockin’ the bump. Since I couldn’t pick just one, I have a few here.

My very first baby bump photo. It’s hardly anything but I was super excited! I happened to be wearing white, which I decided was going to be my theme color for all by baby bump shots, for easy comparison.
*****
I skipped weeks 15 and 17 here as they weren’t very good pictures (vanity haha!), so here’s week 23. Notice the new hairdo – it was super hot and I was well, super hot. Tee hee! This is one of my favorites as I had actually made an effort to get dolled up that day.
*****
Skipping week 27 pictures, here’s week 30. I look tired. I must have been. That bump is getting big. And heavy. And it’s the same top as the one in week 23! I love maternity tops!

December 23, 2009. 6 days before Monkey was born, at nearly 39 weeks. We were in Perth, Australia in a rented apartment. I forgot to bring my white top with me. It was the middle of summer there and burning hot. I hadn’t had a haircut in 6 weeks. I was just large, tired and hips-a-hurtin’. However, that baby bump? I like to think I was rockin’ it.

Do you have any gorgeous pictures of yourself rockin’ that bump? Or are you currently rockin’ it? (jealous!) Yes? Well, please link up with Shell! The link is open from June 13 for a week. Look forward to seeing all those lovely bump pictures!

    Could you BE any cuter??? Only your belly grew. I had total chipmunk cheeks…as in, actual chipmunks living in my cheeks. It was out of control!

    You looked adorable. Loved your hair, too.

    I actually did take a weekly belly shot every week from about 13 on up to 38, when Lil' Bit made her debut. Aside from occasionally posting them to FB, I've never done anything with them. But they're there for posterity and for me to look back on. Which I do. 🙂
