Photo Tag: Bump!

Here's two of my favorite preggy belly pics... please share yours by using the Mr. Linky below! (Updated to add... please include any expectant adoptive parent photos, too!!) Also updated... since this is so popular I'm moving it to the top for now!

This first one was taken back with big brother-to-be Noah (16 months old here) in July '02 when I was almost due with Carter. It's hard to tell with the white shirt & white background, but the belly was b i g ! He ended up being my largest baby born a few days early at 9 lbs 12 oz. Almost all natural, but my water broke with an early leak & I 'wasn't progressing' so we did pitocin via IV... no complications for me, but he did break his poor little collar bone coming out! He was big!




And this lovely bare belly pic is me at 36 weeks pregnant with Grayson in September '05. He was my smallest baby at 7 lbs 5 oz born
completely au natural and without any IV or medication or anything... (yes, I am proud of this!) and his entire body came out in one push!

And I can not look at all these beautiful belly pics without thinking- isn't it amazing, these babies we love so much... they were in there!?


Start looking for photos for next week's tag... the theme is Possession. Could be something current or from your childhood. A material thing you treasure.

It's Party Week... are you there?

  1. Hey Stephanie, How do I get that thing at the bottom of your photo tag so other friends of mine can sign up on my sight and pass this photo tag on?

  3. You were SOOOOOO cute pregnant!!! I am sad because I don't have very many belly pics of me w/ my kids. I don't know why we didn't make that more of a priority. =( And the ones I do have..are AWFUL..LOL...not sure I wanna share those!!!!

  6. How fun! Ah, those were the good times. Or not. I couldn't stand being pregnant, does that make me a terrible mother?

    ReplyDelete
  7. OMGosh I am soo copying that pic! I'm gonna get my pic when I'm big with theBeast!! You may have to remind me, since I'm very absent minded! LOL. I love that pic!! How sweet!! I don't know if I'm gonna link my post, I think I'll just skip this tag? Tell me what you think, I really want to keep my recent post up till tomorrow evening.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Oh, and it is weird thinking that they were in there isn't it? Even when they first come out you look at them and think "how did you fit in there?" LOL

  9. Awesome pics and BTW is that a new haircut?? You're HOT! I would kill for that bob but I just don't have the hair for it. I've tried.

    ReplyDelete
  10. BTW I'm gonna join in on this one just as soon as I dig up some pics.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I am reposting the one from just a couple of weeks ago. Sadly ... it is the only pregnant belly picture that I have. For some reason, I could never find the time to get a photo done.

    Love yours! Have to say that you look absolutely amazing pregnant!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Look at that bump!
    Are you ever not gorgeous? ;)
    Yet another great photo tag, love it.
    Too bad I have no pictures of my bumps :( really, none.

    ReplyDelete
  13. You look so beautiful! I'll see if I can find some pregnancy photos that I like to post!

    ReplyDelete
  14. You're pictures are great! I love your proud mamma belly in the bottom pic!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I think I've seen that one of you pregnant with Gray before. I love it. You look beautiful. I'm not sure if I have any good preggo shots. We weren't that great at taking belly pics. I'll have to look.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Those are great pictures! Fun photo tag!

    ReplyDelete
  17. You look adorable in both pictures! :)
    This is such a great idea...it's been a few years but I'm posting mine!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Your hair looks so cute long, too! I am envious of your versatility. :) Great pics and I think I'll play along with my one lame shot.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'll find my picture and post it for Monday's bump shot. I love your second picture - that's quite the bullet and button!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Look at glorious, radiant you! The photo of you and Noah is so cute and the last one pregnant with Gray you are just too cute! I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Stopping by for the blog party!
    I have to tell you, you could be my friend's twin... you look just like a good friend of mine.

    ReplyDelete
  22. You are adorable!!!! I love these pictures! My son was totally natural too and I was totally surprised when he came out all in one push too (not my first push but you know what I mean!)

    ReplyDelete
  23. K, I decided to post it early. It's up.

    ReplyDelete
  24. OMGosh, you were the cutest pregnant woman, EVER!!! I love the little popped out belly button :)

    I'm off to post mine - but they're not half as cute as yours!

  25. done, and done. i woulda done the mom one, but she's weird about her picture, and it just wasn't worth the hassle. but this, i could do. so there it is.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love how your belly button popped out! Mine popped a little with #2, but never with #1. lol Both mine were natural too. :)

    Thanks for doing the tag, it's been fun. I need to go dig up a pic of me with #1.

    ReplyDelete
  27. With both of my pregnancies were a breeze, a couple of pushes and they were out, no drugs, no nothin. Don't you just love bragging about that. What tolerance we have LOL!!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I was vain. And dumb. So other than being strapped in to a million monitors (so it felt), I only have 2 bump shots. whahahahahaha!!! I'll try to dig them out, but when do I have to post it by?

    ReplyDelete
  29. this is fun! Thanks for doing this. Love the belly button! Mine never popped out even with a 10lb. baby!LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I really have enjoyed this. But my scanner is down...I have all my preggo shots of me and Miller in the floor and cant get them scanned.....dag nabit. Sorry ....If I get them done I will email them so you can see them. Until then I will enjoy everyone else's. Madison is kissing my belly in some....they are all in black and white too. So sweet.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Cute pics, Stephanie. I'll have to look through mine. Hope your Monday is fun and uneventful!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Mine are up! Oddly enough, my hair is always ratty looking in my belly pix. If I have another baby I'm going to doll up before taking belly pix. LOL

    You are such a cute preggo! :o)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Such cute pictures! I am enjoying seeing all the adorable mommies. Thanks for hosting a fun tag!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thanks! I don't remember where I got the idea to get my belly painted. It was probably some PG magazine. A good friend of ours did it for us. Actually she did a test round the day before and painted this crazy face with a big tounge on it. lol

    ReplyDelete
  35. This looks so fun but I don't have any good ones to post. I wish I had thought to do something professional when I was pregnant but it never occured to me :(! I have enjoyed looking at the pictures from the Mr Linky.

    ReplyDelete
  36. No problem--glad to help when I can! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love seeing all the cute belly pics. I wish I'd had some professional pics done, those are really beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Found you through the blog party! Great site! Don't know if I'm brave enough to share my belly pics but I think it's phenomenal that you all can celebrate it like that! Keep up the good baby work!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hey Stephanie-

    I haven't posted my picture yet but I wanted to let you know that I mentioned this photo tag on the Moms of Grace forum for writing prompts and memes. I know how open minded you are since I read your blog and I wanted to be inclusive so I added that adoptive mommies should participate too if they have an "expecting" photo. Like maybe on their way to pick up baby? I hope that's ok with you.

    Blessings-
    Jennifer

  40. Great idea! It's so fun to look back on those days.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I haven't taken one this pregnancy yet!!! lol.. I suppose I should! I'm too lazy to dig out my old ones, and still trying to get through the party trail lol

    ReplyDelete
  42. Well, I wanted to post some pics but my brother is changing around the way I upload photos on my new blog so I can't do it right now. Poop. I had some yummy shots for you. Let's just say I did not look nearly as gorgeous as you in yours:)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Everytime I look at these picture I have to smile. You're just so photogenic! I totally wanted to do a pic of Leelee with me when I was expecting Lex. But she went through quite a lengthy time of being camera shy and refusing to have her picture taken so alas, the only one I have is of the two of us sitting on the couch and you can't even tell I'm pregnant.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Those are great pictures! My belly-button popped out by my fourth month and stretched flat by the end!! This is such a great idea!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I did have beautiful professional photos done when I was pregnant with #4, but I don't have a scanner... Bummer! I don't yet have much of a bump this time (well, maybe a little one!), so I posted a pic of bump #5!!

    I love seeing the beauty that only baby bumps create!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. So this isn't my favorite photo of me pregnant ... I don' think I have any fun photos like you guys all take. However, this post at least explains a little bit about how I love to have a healthy pregnancy.

    Happy partying! You are a superb hostess!

    ReplyDelete
  47. What fun! This is the first time I've done one of these link things, so I hope I did it right!

    ReplyDelete
  48. What a great idea to play Belly Tag! Thanks so much! =)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Just baring my big bulge to the world.... LOL :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. You look beautiful!!!

    I cannot find any pregnant pictures of me. I always hid from the camera :)

    I know there is one (somewhere) that I'm am within days of my due date. It's Christmas time and I'm sitting on Grandma's couch Christmas Eve with a huge plate of food on my huge belly. That one would be good. I will try to get that one up if I can find it.

  51. Great photo tag! :o) You looked adorable pregnant!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Wow! You look great pregnant! Me, not so much. I'd post pix but I don't have mine on my computer yet. I still need to scan all my old photos and get them on here. I'm way behind.

    ReplyDelete
  53. You have such a cute little belly. I got huge with all mine. Great photo tag although I can't believe I posted photos of my big bad self!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Great picture. I never had a belly picture taken - my kids are 23 and 21 and it's not something we did back then. I wish I could join this particular fun event. There is always next time.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I've loved wearing all my babies, and toddlers too! Best way to keep 'hold of a 3 yr old while 9 months pregnant and grocery shopping!
    Good to meet you!

  56. I think pregnant belly's are so cute - I always wanted to do a belly cast, but didn't get around to it, and now that opportunity has passed - oh well. Fun to look back at my pregnancy pics for this!

    ReplyDelete
  57. You were gorgeous! I almost forgot to post mine, but better late than never, right?

    ReplyDelete
  58. Before each of my pregnancies (I'm halfway through #2), I had great hopes of taking weekly photos so I could do a stop-animation of my growing belly.

    I guess life just gets in the way. But you did inspire me to take a pic this morning.

    ReplyDelete
  59. OKay, okay! It's up..not the one I was searching for, but pictures nonetheless.

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  60. Hi Stephanie! Thanks for stopping by my blog doing the party rounds - I would post a preggo pic but I wasn't wearing anything (okay so all the "bits" are covered, lol), ack! ;)

    I'm a babywearer too, still have my slings and swear to god, just used one last week to wear my 2.5-year-old while bike riding with the bigger boys. I wasn't sure he'd fit, but we used it more as a butt-hugger than a full-body sling and he LOVED it. :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. I have no idea where any pictures are at. I wish I did. Happy Party Hopping.

  64. I finally posted mine. Such a fun idea!

    ReplyDelete
  65. What fun! I loved seeing belly pics!

    ReplyDelete
  66. hey girl - i haven't forgotten this - i was wondering - can I post my pic for WW? I will still link back to this post - I just can kill two posts with one stone? (actually I am going use one of Sue cause WAY back when I was preg with Jackson I didn't have a digital camera and I am just too busy to deal with my crazy scanner right now.)

    ReplyDelete
  67. I HAVE to go through all these bellies. I just love preggo pictures!

    Mine's up

    ReplyDelete
  68. Cute idea... hope I'm not too late for me to participate!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I hope I did this right. Everyone is so beautiful pregnant! Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  70. This is why it's not a good idea to have most of your preggy photos in a scrapbook! Everyone has wonderful tummies!


    Nice to meet you! Your blog is great!

    ReplyDelete
  71. wow that is some belly... im not that big but i am expecting in june.. you can check out mine when you have time...

    This is so much fun!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Awwww....... GREAT photos! I love preggo bellies!!

    Your scarves are lovely!! I am adding them to my "wish list". :o)

    So... How long do you "wear" your babies? My hubby uses the front pack, but I think we'd both like the sling better. ;o)

    Blessings, Beckie

  74. Aw, your bump pictures are so cute! Wow, no IV/meds at all?! I'm impressed! I'd love to particpate but I'm not a mommy/expectant mommy yet. I just hope I look as cute as you when I've got my belly bump! =)

    ReplyDelete
