Because after all, it truly is art.

Pregnancy is art no matter which way you look at it.





My belly at 21 weeks, 5 days.
One more day until we found out just who is resting in my belly
and two more days until I turn 30.

This is an awe-inspiring picture! I am sure that you will never regret documenting your belly. I have two teenagers, and was oh so very young when I was pregnant. I didnt think to do anything like this and now I really wish I had.

We all cannot wait to find out who is resting in your belly! I bet you wont sleep too well tonight in anticipation!! :) (I hope its an early appt. for your sake!)

I am so glad you had the courage to post this because it is beautiful! I can't wait to find out what is making such a beautiful belly.
I have a photo that I took of me naked, holding a naked Luke, just last week, but I can't find the guts to share it. I'm proud of you.

I'm very proud of you and you should be very proud of yourself. This is nothing short of wonderful.

To me? These photos scream "CELEBRATION." There is much to be celebrated.

Such a gorgeous picture! I took a similar one when I was about 28 weeks along and it's one of my favorite from my pregnancy.

Have fun at your appointment! Can't wait to find out who's in there. Thanks again for sharing your journey with all of us.

Pregnancy is definitely art. I didn't take pictures but I have belly casts from my second and third pregnancy. It is amazing to see what my body did to support my girls!

Thank you for sharing. Good luck tomorrow that the little one is cooperative.

When I opened this up and saw what was before me, I got goosebumps all over my body. Girl, you are beautiful and should be so proud, and to share it with us, makes me so excited to be sharing in this miracle. You said it all, it is Art work at it's best! Move over Demi, C.E. has arrived with baby in tow! I am so excited to hear if it will be ruffles & bows or bats & balls....Anticipation! And, what a great picture to end with before turning 30!!! Proud of you!

What a beautiful picture! I wish I would have taken some pictures like that when I was pregnant. You look amazing and what makes it even more beautiful I think is the fact that you realize how gorgeous you look with that baby growing inside of you. That is awesome. I can't wait to find out if you are having a prince or princesss!
