It was soooooo fun, and looking back I’m totally astounded by how much my body changed! If you are pregnant or hope to be sometime in the future, I highly recommend taking periodical photos! It also has the added benefit of keeping family that are far away up to date with your pregnancy (in fact I got many phone calls from my mom reminding me to take the photos because I kept forgetting!!)
It was incredibly easy – I wore the same top each week, just stood up against a plain white wall, and we marked a spot on the floor so that we too the photos from the same place every week. That’s it.
And though I adamantly denied it both times, my shirt colour does mean something. When I found out I was pregnant with my daughter I wore a pink shirt in all the photos because I was so convinced she was girl, and this time I wore a blue shirt because I was sure it was a boy. I was right both times – of course it could just be that I got lucky with my guesses twice (there is a 1 in 2 chance!), but I’ve decided to believe I had some sort of mom intuition!!
Anyway, can you guys believe how much my belly grew?? And that my 9lb little boy actually fitted in there?? It’s amazing!
