If you decide to omit the breasts, you will end up with a belly "bowl" that would be very cute for newborn pictures! You can even plaster in a coaster over the middle of your belly to make sure the bowl will sit correctly. Then you decorate it and stick the new baby in it for a cute photo op!

I was really nervous about showing my breasts on my belly cast because I've never been particularly fond of their shape.. But I just went for it and called up a lady who works here locally and the experience was peaceful and the belly cast looks amazing. She made my boobs look great and yet still like mine! I'm so happy to have done this and I would recommend it to any of you who are still hesitating because it is really a great way to remember your pregnancy. Go for it while you still can!

I did mine last week and I ended up doing two b/c I wasn't totally happy with the first one. For the first one I was sitting semi reclined and I didn't think that my belly looked as big as it really is. So we did another one where I sat up straight on the edge of the chair and I think it came out way better. Now I am going to put on another layer of rigid wrap to make it stronger and then I am going to paint a big mandala on the belly and seal it with an acrylic finish. I am going to hang it on the wall in my birthing room and use it as a focal point during labor.
