I’m not sure how I feel about these photos. Honestly, I feel so… unprepared. I spent a lot of time planning out exactly how Pip’s belly photos would be taken. I purposefully left a blank white wall in my living room to use as a backdrop. I had a special font picked out. I had an elaborate set-up in my living room for shooting the photos. I had a special belly shot filter set in Photoshop so each photo would match.
This time, though, I have nothing planned. Since Pip, I have filled that blank white wall with a large piece of art. The emptiness of the wall became this daily reminder of the emptiness of my womb and it killed me every morning to see it. So I bought a piece of art (that I could not afford), framed it in a large frame, and had the Professor hang it with a French Cleat so I could not take it down again and torment myself (as I seem to fancy doing).
Fast forward to this pregnancy. I’m in the second trimester and… just don’t feel like taking photos. I know I’ll probably regret not taking them though. Hell, I already regret not snapping a 6 week shot of my once flat belly and toned bum!
So here are my half-hearted 13 week belly shots. I don’t think I’ll be taking them weekly… maybe bi-weekly? Maybe just when my muse pays me a visit?
