Two of my dearest friends are driving up here to NY today from Maryland for my baby shower tomorrow, and one of them is going to henna my belly tonight!<br>
I'm very excited!<br>
I will post pictures once it's done. Yay!<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bellycast.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bellycast"><br><br>
Has anybody else done any kind of special belly love projects?<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bellycast.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bellycast"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/stillheart.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stillheart"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bellycast.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bellycast"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/stillheart.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stillheart"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bellycast.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bellycast"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/stillheart.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stillheart"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bellycast.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bellycast"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/stillheart.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stillheart">

That sounds SO neat! I would love to do some henna artwork on my belly, but have never done it. It will be fun to see your pictures!

I'd like to see your pics. No, I've never had the opportunity to have this done.

Ooh, cool! Some friends of mine will probably be helping me make a belly cast on Tuesday, if I'm still pregnant then (which I probably will be.) I'll let you know how it goes!

I had my belly Henna'd when I was pregnant with my twins, and I LOVED it. Have fun tonight!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">

That sounds awesome!<br><br>
No, I've never had anything like that with any of my pregnancies. No one to do it for me.<br><br>
Enjoy yourself!!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I had henna with my second and I have done a belly cast at 39 weeks for all 3 of mine so far. I will post all of them(they hang on the wall in my bedroom) when #4 gets done in a few weeks. It is so cool so see how differently I have carried each pregnancy.

Awesome!! I really wanted to do this, but wasn't sure where to get SAFE henna, so didn't get to it. Please make sure your friend uses the genuine stuff that turns brownish/orange/red, not black or other funky colors, which may not be safe. Have fun! And post pictures!!

Here it is with the henna still on and drying -- it will look different tomorrow once the stain sets in<br><a href="http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=2709810&l=8837aaba2f&id=703462542" target="_blank">http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...f&id=703462542</a><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

We're doing my belly cast on Tuesday as my going away present at work (My last day was this week)- I'm really excited to see how it will turn out seeing as I work with artists!

Here's the belly the next day, once the henna paste is off -- the design is more subtle and very pretty <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br><a href="http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=2715145&l=9690c25ba1&id=703462542" target="_blank">http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...1&id=703462542</a>

Don't worry it will darken considerably. Not super dark, because belly skin is thin, but It will go from orange to brown in a day. It needs time to oxidise. It's very lovely!<br><br>
PS I friended you on FB <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">.

That is so cool! I love the idea of it, but have never done it. I'm too shy regarding my belly. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">
