Did you take pics of your pregnant belly?

I wouldn't let anyone the first baby and I regretted it later big time. The second time I actually posed and let dh take some lol.

  • Yes I did, even nude ones for the hubby and I. I got my pictures taken 2 days before I had my baby....I was swollen (and didn't look like a model because I was on bedrest with high blood pressure and gained 56 pounds---I weighed 186 and I am 5'3), but wouldn't take anything for those pics. I loved the belly--and one day I will share some of those pics with my son. You may not share the pics with anyone, but they are nice to look back on...Nice to remember the joy of pregnancy. I have friends that regret not getting some done. I never took pictures throughout my pregnancy or have week by week pictures and I am ok with that! Here is a pic that I love--they were not proffesional, but I edited them for myself.

  • Yes, not every week like some women do. But yes, this is my 3rd and final pregnancy so I definitely want to take all the pregger belly pics I can.

  • With our 1st DS we did 5 sittings. The 1st was when we foud out that I was pregnant, the 2nd was at 3 months, 3rd at 6 months, 4th at 9 months and the final when the baby was a week old. In all of the pics DH and I both wore silk PJs and we used the same poses,except in the last one we had DS in either a cloth diaper or nude. It was a great way to see the changes as my pregnancy went along. Unfortunately, the photographer who did these retired before our 2nd DS, but we did the best we could to do something similar at home.They came out great, but just not quite the same.

  • I am so sad because I didn't. And now I don't think I will ever have another baby and I have NO pics from when I was pregnant. It really makes me sad when I think about it :(

But I never took any with my shirt up really showing my belly & I kinda wish I would've. & a friend of mines sister offered to do professional pics for me & I refused but I deff regret that but I do plan on having another in the near future (hopefully) so I will deff do it this time!

  • I'm so glad I did! I had DH take some periodically, but I have a friend who does photography, and I had her take some a couple of weeks before I was due. I plan to have some taken with each pregnancy. I wore jeans and a tank top, and then some I used the Bella Band as a bandeau style bra with jeans. I was all about rocking that belly!!
