13 Weeks (and 3 days) Photo

Belle

Wordpress sort of photo bombs you with the first photo of every post in the Reader. This has ALWAYS bothered me when it comes to pregnancy posts so I'll start each belly photo post with a cat photo so you get photo bombed with fuzzy cuteness and then can CHOOSE if you want to view my butt in all it's full-screen glory.

WordPress sort of photo bombs you with the first photo of every post in the Reader. This has ALWAYS bothered me when it comes to pregnancy posts so I’ll start each belly photo post with a cat photo so you get photo bombed with fuzzy cuteness and then can CHOOSE if you want to view my butt in all it’s full-screen glory.

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?

    So cute! I have not taken a single picture of my stomach, I only did one belly shot at 29 weeks for my last pregnancy. Just do what you feel! I did do photos with my husband in the ninth month, fully clothed, I don’t even remember what week I was in! You look great, you look really fit and healthy, I’m jealous! Have a Merry Christmas!

    You look great! Take the photos when you want. At some point I started looking to the right instead of the left and I’m never wearing the same clothes and I didn’t take then perfectly on the day I became officially one week further along. I am glad I took them, though, and wish I had taken a 34 week picture, or at least my 33 week in a better shirt, but whatever haha

    I have to say, I love looking back to my earlier pregnancy shots when I wasn’t so huge and seeing how little peanut has grown. You are adorable.

    Cute photos! Both the kitty and you.
    As the other two said, take photos as you feel up to it. Or, take more photos and only post those that you feel up to sharing with us. 🙂
