Oh, you all look so beautiful! I'm already kinda missing my belly but I'm excited to see how quickly it's going back to normal! I'm within 13lbs of my pre pregnancy weight and will be taking a pic of my PP belly to share this weekend. For now, I took a pic after I showered the day I had Ally Rae since I thought it might be the last day I had a belly since ctx were regular at that point. I wanted a final pic!

great pics ladies. I've taken some the past two weeks but haven't felt like uploading them....maybe i'll get out of my "why isn't baby here yet" funk and do that I know if I don't do it now, I won't do it. Tara, I'm glad that you decided to go ahead and do your belly cast!

My DH took "official" maternity photos of me today at 38w 1d. I really wanted to hire a professional, but the money just wasn't available I do really like the way these turned out though--take a look!

Those aren't professional? Wow...I wish my DH was that good at taking pics.

Yes, they came out beautiful. I have to ask my DH multiple times for each 1 he takes, it's like pulling teeth. :

Thanks, you guys, for the nice comments on DH's pictures! He's absolutely beaming now

Yes, it has slowed down since so many babies have been born lately!

Heddy, your belly looks great!

yogamonkeyjo, I absolutely love the picture of your belly that's kind of on the diagonal! So cute!

Just for some Halloween fun (cuz I guess this baby could be born on Halloween - who knows?):

My partner and I "dressed up" in Halloween garb -- well, me in my orange T-shirt and her in her airline pilot outfit from last year. She added the jack o' lantern effects digitally.

I very much enjoyed watching all of your bellies grow. I never got any of my belly pics on here, nor did I take many. Still, I wanted to post one from my maternity photo shoot, and the final belly pic from when I was in labor, now that I have an easy way to post.

I wanted to post a final belly shot I never got to post before this ddc closes.
This was taken right before we left for the hospital when I was in labor.

And this was the meal that started it ...labor inducing Szechtuan my friends! I highly recommend eating this super spicy cuisine with the numbing peppers when you want to go into labor. This was taken around 9 pm and my water broke at 3 am as my contrax kicked in...

^You look amazing in that photo! I never would've guessed you were in labor at that point! I know I didn't look attractive by the time we left for the hospital (5 hours after I took my last belly pic)!! Gorgeous mama!

This is another thread I have so enjoyed. Thank you mamas who participated and also those who commented on my growing belly. It really helped keep me feeling good about my changing body and gave me confidence to wear a bikini all summer!
