I know that some people don’t take many pictures while pregnant, but I tend to be one of those who likes a belly picture taken every months or so. I only had two pictures taken when I was pregnant with Noah and I’m really glad I have them. I have read on other blogs, etc. that in pregnancies following loss, a lot of women choose not to take pictures until they are sure the baby is going to “stick.” I would definitely choose to take them regardless, because I am very grateful to have some visual reminders that yes, I WAS pregnant and with a very real baby.
Taken at about 6 weeks pregnant (I’m in my bathing suit, not underwear!):
And at about 12 weeks pregnant–see, I had a little bump 🙂
I asked Mark to take a post-miscarriage picture too, because I wanted to remember how pale I was (I’ve never seen myself so pale) and how the circles around my eyes looked (they don’t show up in the picture really though). This was 3 days later.
