The title says it...

I did henna last time and loved it, so I'm doing it again. I am just doing it with some friends--nothing professional. I ordered the "expecting kit" from henna caravan and hopefully we'll have a lot of fun. It's supposed to be enough henna to do my belly plus a dozen or more other smaller designs.
Last time I was having a hospital birth, and the week after I got my henna done I was at the OB for my regular appt and when I pulled up my shirt for him to do the doppler/measuring he got the weirdest look and asked what was on my belly. Clearly he had never seen henna before

I've thought bellycasting would be fun, except that then I have no idea what I'd do with the big plaster belly...so I suspect I'll always just stick with henna.

ETA, I forgot to mention belly photos...I've never had those done (not professional ones at least) and I think they'd be fun but I just have never gotten around to it.

I meant to make the poll multiple choice but I think I forgot. i'm going to try to edit it but if I can't then just leave your answer in a post.

I'm attempting belly casting on Sunday. I will for sure let you know how it goes. I actually look really cute pregnant, but I shied away from belly photos cuz I notoriously hate my belly.

We're making two casts: one of just my belly to eventually be turned into a bronze bowl when I have an extra crapload of money to spend (http://www.mamasbelly.com/galleries/edges/index.html), and another of my boobs and belly to be collaged upon as my young'un and I make memories together.

Should be a trip.

I ain't doin' nothin' this time!!!! With dd #1 I did the "take a picture of me every week" thing. With dd #2, I did a belly cast. With ds, I had 3D ultrasound pics taken. With this baby....hmmmm, let me think, oh, that's right, NOTHING!!!! I've got a few pics of me, looking giant, with one of my other children, but nothing nice. I will most assuredly do a baby book for her and keep it updated, just like I did with the other three, but unfortunately, I have lost the ability to do anything extra!

I did a belly cast at my blessingway. I figured it was my last pregnancy, might as well. I have very few belly photos or anything like that with this one, it's just been too busy. So that was my special pregnancy thing, I guess.
