Weekly Baby Bump Photos {How To Document A Pregnancy}

 Hey, remember that one time I was pregnant? Yeah, I'm about seven weeks late to the pregnancy party, but I still thought it would be fun to share the last bits of my pregnancy here on the blog. Just a little chance for me to reminiscence on the good ol' days of peeing every five minutes and looking like I swallowed a basketball. Sound good?!

As you guys know, I documented my pregnancy with weekly photos of my growing bump. Well, almost weekly photos. Sometimes the nausea and complete lack of willpower to stand in front of a camera and look cute meant we skipped a week or two here and there. So yes, a couple of these are fudged, but that's quite alright with me. Most of these were taken on time, from week five of my pregnancy until week thirty-eight, when I delivered.


Pretty fun to watch the evolution of the bump, right?! I love that I wore the same dress the whole time, which made the bump growth look even more dramatic. It was a pain to keep up with each week, but David and I are definitely glad we have these photos to look back on!

Here are the money shots: week five, week thirty-seven and week thirty-eight.



Isn't it funny how the look on my face goes from "yayyy! I'm preggo!" to "holy cow, I have a friggin' watermelon in my stomach" to "I'm so happy but can't keep my eyelids open because I'm so tired." Yeah, I'm still in that last phase, that's for sure!

I decided to keep the weekly photo tradition going with Baby H. Well, bi-weekly at least. I've been snapping shots of him with the same little chalkboard since his first week. It's so much fun to see how much he's grown already! Little man is going to be walking, talking, graduating college and taking his seat in the Oval Office before I even know it! What? My kid's going to be President, I know it.

I'll be sure to share H Dawg's bi-weekly photos soon. Speaking of... I've been meaning to ask. Do you guys like hearing about the bambino? Or would you rather me keep this blog all home decor + DIY? I've been curious, so I thought I'd ask.

Happy Monday, folks!

Pin It!

  23. You were such a cute pregnant lady. You looked great the entire time and I love the progression. I am still a little sad because I lost my hard drive at week 32 and lost all my pregnancy photos. I was taking them in front of our kitchen chalkboard. Sigh. I lived and learned. And now I'm just thanking my lucky stars I didn't lose all of Henry's photos.

    Also, of course I wanna hear about the H man. (We totally call Henry the h man, too.) and if you don't tell us about him, I'll be very disappointed and judgey about it. ;)

  30. I love these baby bump shots! I recently found out I am pregnant and hope to do the same kind of thing. Where did you get the dress you are wearing? So cute!

  31. Wonderful idea! May I ask what dress you got that stretched to Week 38?

    ReplyDelete
  32. For those of you asking, the dress is a t-shirt material dress that I scored from Old Navy last winter! I'm sure they have something similar in the stores this year : )
