I am thinking about doing one this week (if I have the extra $ for supplies) and thought it would be cool to have hang on the wall in the nursery. I am going to paint it white and place our family's handprints in yellow (the nursery colors) on it. I will be 38 weeks on Tuesday & thought it would be the perfect time to do it.
Anyone else doing one?

Be sure to post pics! I love belly casts, but have never done one.

I did belly casts with my first 2 kids (I'm at week 38 w/my 3rd). I really like that I did them, but I haven't done anything with them yet! My ds is 3 1/2 & dd is almost 2. I think I'm going to have them decorate them now that they're old enough, kinda giving it their personality. I did ds's on my due date (he was 5 days late) and dd's a week or so early (and she ended up being a day early). This one I was planning on doing last week but plans fell through so I'm not sure when I'll get it done! I'd recommend doing it; it's so easy. I got the little "rolls" of plaster-type stuff from Michael's (it took 2 rolls to do my whole belly/chest) & did it the cheap way instead of buying a kit. And I agree, post pics if/when you do it!
