The wonderful women in my local AP group had a Mama Blessing for me tonight, and boy did I ever feel pampered and special! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
We started with a lovely spread of food... then moved on to henna on my belly. One of the moms is a henna artist (and I think a MDC mom too!) and she came to do my belly. I've never had anything like this done and it felt so cool and I enjoyed it very much.<br><br>
Here are a few pics of the process, and I guess my almost 38 weeks belly pic, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br><a href="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3138/2603447816_f96567ca8d_b.jpg" target="_blank">http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3138/...6567ca8d_b.jpg</a><br><br><a href="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3181/2602627415_3a2af7d096_b.jpg" target="_blank">http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3181/...2af7d096_b.jpg</a><br><br><a href="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3169/2602627913_df6d374d1e_b.jpg" target="_blank">http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3169/...6d374d1e_b.jpg</a><br><br><a href="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3194/2603458746_7067d6c56d_b.jpg" target="_blank">http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3194/...67d6c56d_b.jpg</a><br><br>
And the completed belly-<br><br><a href="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3025/2603414598_caa5936fbe_b.jpg" target="_blank">http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3025/...a5936fbe_b.jpg</a><br><br>
I can't wait to see how it looks after the paste comes off <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
btw- she asked me what kind of design I wanted and I said to do what ever she felt like, she did all this free hand <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I love henna and how relaxing it is! That looks great and you'll have to post pics after the paste is off. I am getting some done on Sat. but it won't be as good b/c I'm having family do it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
