Belly cast

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Did anyone do one/planning to do one? I wasn't all that thrilled about it, but my doula offered and so I took her up on it. It was AWESOME! Not only is the cast really cool looking, but the experience was fabulous. I felt like I was being pampered because my husband and doula were both doing the cast together. Plus my husband had a lot of fun. And holy moly, I can't believe how big my belly is now that I see it in 3D! These are my belly at 38w2d:

Me in the belly cast.
That's quite the belly!

I love how it got the nipples and belly button too! It's very cool. Anyone else have experiences/photos to share?

I did one last time but not this time. I am thinking about getting some pictures done last minute since I got some last time and loved them.

For those that have done them, what did you do with the belly cast afterward? Did you paint it or just hang it or what? I have no idea what to do with it now!

I did one. H did a great job with it, just need to do a bit of re-inforcing. Never managed to get around to it yet.

We made belly casts with both pregnancies - though I think I did the first one earlier on (I don't think this one is SOOO much bigger . . .).
We just have them "au naturel" and hung on the wall. I think maybe when the kids are bigger, I will ask them to help me decorate them - but I have to decide on the right age, so they will be something both kids will like. Or maybe DH and I will decorate them in a parenting celebration at some point . . .I'm not sure!

We have done two belly casts. The first one was about a month ago. I was so afraid of going early that I wanted to make sure I had one. The other was just last night...we did a very artsy one that looks like two cresent moons and a full moon, very cool. I'll post a pic when it is officially finished. I am using them to make birth sculptures for my birth sanctuary and I guess eventually they can go in the baby's room when we make one.

I am covering one with pictures of birthing goddesses and I think the other one we might paint and then light really uniquely.
