I love the photo series where pregnant women have nearly identical photos except for their growing bellies. I decided to start one--hopefully I keep it up! My plan is to take a photo every 5 weeks. I'm a huge scrapbooker, so I can't to put them all together.

 

My first photo:

Who else is doing photos? Please share :)

Wow! That looks incredible, so professional!  No, wasn't going to do this, but you're inspiring me now!  Do we need to have photoshop in order to do something that looks as great as yours?

Yes, I am. I didn't take belly shots at all with my last pregnancy - depressed and embarassed by my body. This time, I'm definitely taking pictures, embracing my body and the beauty of pregnancy in all shapes and sizes. My shot definitely isn't as nice as your shot, but perhaps I'll figure out a way to make them pretty by the next photo.

Thanks! I hope future photos turn out as well as this one. I've spent the past week trying to figure out a place in my house to take the photos. This morning I finally got the idea to just take it in the bedroom against the dark green wall. The lighting isn't so great, so that's why I edited it a little bit (seventies action from Pioneer Woman).

 

If you don't have photoshop, you can easily adjust colors, add text, crop, and touch up photos at http://www.photoshop.com/home.

Both of you ladies look lovely. And I do think it is a great idea.

 

dandy lion- Do you plan on keeping the text in the same spot throughout the entire series? If so, you might need to move it. I'm thinking you might run out of room. ROTFLMAO.gif

I think it would ROCK if you can't quite see all the text at the end LOL. 

 

I did this last time.  THe beginning several weeks all look the same because I am quite overweight.  We'll see.

After 6 kids my belly is not worth taking pictures of. Its all battle scared and flabby. I think I will spare my posterity.

I do, but I think it will be really cool if my belly covers up the writing a little bit!

I plan on doing them, but not showing my actual belly. I have stretch marks from previous pregnancies, plus I always wear a one piece and we live a block form the beach in florida... so my body is significantly tanner than my stomach, LOL lol.gif

 

But I plan on wearing a maternity shirt that I can wear throughout so you can watch it grow. I bought a cute tight black tee that is long and I will be able to wear throughout the entire pregnancy. I'm starting them at my 9th week on Tuesday.

Great photos so far!

I've taken two already, and am hoping to take one every week until the baby comes.  I'll post them eventually.  It will be fun to see everyone grow!

10 weeks?  ok, I'm confused.  I'm due 29 Feb and not even 5 weeks yet.  How can you be more than 5 weeks further along and still in Feb?  By my calculations Feb only has 4 weeks and 1 day in it next year!  Tell me my preggo brain in playing games with me!
