I don’t even want to dwell on the fact that I may never be pregnant again. I loved being pregnant. Both times. Nausea, cankles and all. It’s such a short and special time in my life and I wanted to document it as best as I could.

When I was pregnant with my son I had a couple of maternity sessions. Including a boudoir session. I also took my own selfies once a week to document my growing belly. I had quite a few people ask me how I made these images and I promised I’d do a tutorial. In case you missed it, here’s a quick recap of my pregnancy letters project with Big T. It’s also a great demo of going from looking great to grungy, but whatev… Weekly Pregnancy Love Letters

5 weeks pregnant

Ready to be completely bombed with photos of my pregnant self? This isn’t even the half of it when you consider all the maternity sessions I’ve had done too… I’ll be sharing of those soon. So I kinda have sucked at documenting this pregnancy on my blog. Like sucked super bad. But I’m glad I’ve still been journaling for this little one to read some day. It’s just been a process getting them all edited and posted in the same week. I’m finally caught up and ready to do a big pregnancy update! Hopefully weeks 33-41 (I’m expecting to go late) I can share on a weekly basis.

A couple other things… Remember that New York trip I went on a while back that I couldn’t share more info about yet? Well, now I can! I’ve partnered with The Birds and the Bees to talk about Today’s Modern Family. I was on a panel with four other amazing women (including Rosie Pope!) to talk about family planning, balancing home life with career, and why I decided to take the plunge and become a mom at a young age. The other women have had different experiences and journeys but all have a special story to share. You can read all about them and watch out interviews here.

Also, you’ll see in my letters to Leechie that our gender guesses have been all over the map! My husband is now team pink (as far as guessing, though he tells me he hopes it’s a boy) and I’m still team blue. If you’d like to make your guess count (sorta), you can join our pregnancy pool over at WhatsInMyBelly.com. They’re featuring Little Leechie’s pool and sponsoring a $50 giveaway for the winner who gets the most points in guessing the gender, birth date, weight, etc. I’m also trying to see if I can line up another sponsor or two to sweeten the deal a little more, maybe for a 2nd and 3rd place winner. They also did a Q and A with me, and I shared some of the craftiness I’ve been up to with the take-home outfit(s), which I haven’t had time to share here. SORRY! I’m such a boring blogger these days. Part of it is because I’ve been re-hired as a BabyCenter blogger (I’m currently giving away $125 to Target, so go enter!) and that takes up a bit of my blogging mojo. I’ll try to do better.

And finally, I haven’t written out the post on how I do these photos but I did make a video tutorial that I’ll embed in a detailed tutorial post soon, but if you just can’t wait any longer, here’s the video tutorial. Hope that helps a little. Now check out how this baby has grown over the last six weeks!
