Oh wow, your belly looks amazing NewMumJoy!

 

Last week (32 weeks) I sat for an art drawing class, and got this picture out of it (sorry for the nudity - I was wearing pasties!):

36 weeks with a bare belly!!! I forgot to add that I'm wearing my birth necklace from the birth beads I received! My son and I strung them today (I added a big stone in the middle).

I haven't posted any belly pics because up until recently my belly has not been at all impressive!  About two weeks ago baby must have gone through a massive growth spurt, or maybe my ab muscles just finally decided to give up.  Here are two shots of me and my wonderful husband on our farm at 33 1/2 weeks:

Everyone is looking amazing! Penny, what a wonderful keepsake of your pregnancy!

 

Here is the bump at 36 weeks, 1 day. We are having a maternity photo shoot on Saturday, which I won at a maternity expo. The photographer suggested a flowy solid or white dress, but I don't really have anything that combines the 2. Any opinions?

 

The white dress is actually a stretchy thing I wore to our city hall marriage ceremony (the only one we celebrated) 11 years ago....

And this is a dress from motherhood, but it's not solid:

Here I am (back in my work bathroom) at 37 weeks.  Feeling better at 37 weeks than I did at 36, which is weird and slightly disconcerting.  I thought things were moving along!  *grumble grumble grumble*

ETA: Andaluza, you're a genius!  That totally worked, however weirdly.  Thanks!

Thanks, Tizzy, for the opinion! I sent a pic to the photographer, but I also found a nice flowy linen skirt and top at Macy's on sale, so I think I'll bring the stretchy and flowy options. Photographer thinks both will work.

 

Lily, cute bump! That happened to my second picture (iphone, right?). I had flipped it correctly after downloading it from my iphone (since they always do that on my windows laptop). But I noticed it had flipped when I previewed the post, so I saved a flipped version of that one, uploaded it, and it showed up right. Very weird and no explanation, but maybe a work around?

andaluza--I think the white dress looks stunning!

 

Everyone else looks fabulous too!

jenna ok dish! I want that dress even not pregnant- where can I get it :)

 

You all look so happy and healthy and have such nice single baby bellies :) LOVE the photos.. keep them coming. This will be over so quickly and I'm already wondering why I didnt get some decent shots of me not in the bathroom mirror :)

My sister in law put that dress in her give away pile last summer, and somehow MIRACULOUSLY it still fits me!  I was beyond thrilled when I pulled it out from the back of the closet and even with the belly it fit!  I'm having to get more and more creative with outfits.  Some days I am more successful than others. Single baby bellies are adorable, true, but twins-bellies are amazing.  :)

While I was visiting FL this weekend B and I had maternity photos done.  We haven't got all the pictures back, but the photographer posted a sneak peak for us.  This is at 34w4d

Rebecca, that photo is just lovely.  DW and I have been fawning over how beautifully lit it is.  Are you in the baby's nursery?
