Remembering the Bump: Celebrating Our First

I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t pregnant. I’d watch in envy women in body-hugging dresses and skirts and be reminded of my own collection that I haven’t been able to touch for months now. And probably won’t for the many months to come. And now that I’m nearing the end of my third trimester, with an ever sprouting bump, I find myself wearing the same few pieces over and over. Just because nothing else fits comfortably anymore. And being a size petite, I won’t lie this freaks me out a little bit. But I pat myself on the back for having gone this far without buying any maternity clothing.

People I meet would always comment how “small” I am, surprised to hear that I’m this far into my pregnancy, and how I have a “belly-only pregnancy.” I suppose my belly is still relatively manageable, despite bumping into the fridge door on a daily basis. Every woman experiences pregnancy differently, and I’m grateful for a relatively smooth ride so far. No serious cravings, impulses, mood swings, or drama to brag about.

And hey, even though I can’t slip into just any dress these days, I completely embrace my pregnant body and I dig the bump! Which is why I wanted something to remember it by. So we did a photoshoot with my brother in my thirty-second week. The whole thing was ultra-simple, and we even took some of the photos right at home. And I absolutely loved how they came out! Here are some of my favorites:
