My dear friend Nicole did take official maternity photographs of me at 36 weeks, but I had in mind that I wanted to do a few maternity self portraits at 38, 39 and 40 weeks of my bare belly. This is VERY much WAY out of my comfort zone, but I figured what the heck. This is our first child and I might as well go for it, right? :-) You can never go back. This is a one time thing. And I can’t be a hypocrite as I ‘preach’ the importance of documenting special moments in life and not follow through in my own life. And I’ve worked pretty hard to not ‘let go’ during this pregnancy by eating right and exercising in hopes to have the best birth possible. So, today with the help of something called ‘self timer’ on my camera, I took a series of shots of myself and the bump. HA! It sounds so funny when I call it that.
Here was my favorite from today, stretch mark and all because I’m keeping it real.
