From bump to baby Theo

This blog post is a little different. During my pregnancy I recorded the growth of my bump by taking pictures in the same spot. I intended to do this every week, but more or less ended up every couple of weeks! My bump was pretty small to start off with, so I didn’t start taking pictures until I was 23 weeks pregnant.

I hadn’t thought of doing bump pictures until my friend showed me hers. I instantly thought what a fabulous idea! And then went on to do my own. I’m so, so glad that I did this – as it is amazing to look back at how my bump changed throughout the weeks. I was even able to see the changing shape of my bump, and when it dropped at around 35 weeks.

As a first time mum, I remember wondering how big I would get on certain weeks and constantly searching through other women’s bump pictures. That’s why I thought I’d share my own. If at all useful to anyone, I will be happy! And if not, it is the most wonderful keepsake of pictures for me to look back on in the future! Enjoy!

I never actually managed to get a 40 week bump picture as he came on his due date! So, the final bump picture I got was this selfie just four days before Theo was born.

Once Theo was three months old, I FINALLY managed to finish my little bump update collage off – but with him this time! Below is the final result.

Looking back, I really enjoyed doing my bump pictures. As well as being fun at the time, I was able to compare how much I had grown each week and whether the shape of my bump had changed. Sean also became a dab hand at being my photographer (sorry Sean!). I would definitely recommend doing this sort of thing if you are pregnant – I love being able to have these pictures to keep forever and to show Theo one day.
