    Anyway, beautiful!

  28. I knew you'd get comments on "size", but I have to say that your belly is not that big in person. Everyone should be telling you how great you look!

    So glad we got pics of this, it was a very special moment for me there with you two (three). Thanks again.

    ReplyDelete
  29. AMAZING! Really.

    (Can you imagine what it would look like if you kept it through childbirth? That's making me giggle right now. Sorry. I didn't get enough sleep last night.)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ah, that is beautiful.
    I henna tattooed my belly during my last pregnancy. It's such a celebration.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Beautiful! And I love the way you celebrate your belly and baby...precious.

    ReplyDelete
  32. LOVE THIS!
    Steph, this looks incredible.
    This alone makes me want to get pregnant again, lol. I better stop looking! ;)

    (btw, do you have NO stretch marks?!)

    ReplyDelete
  33. That is so beautiful. I'm sure it was hard to wash off, I would want to keep it forever.

    ReplyDelete
  34. That is AWESOME!!!!

    How long is it going to stay? I'd be afraid to bathe, it's so gorgoues!

    ReplyDelete
  35. WHOA haha. thats neat! u should do a henna one ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Wow! That is absolutely breathtaking. I'm not so sure that I'd ever want to shower again if I had something that gorgeous painted on me--of course, your perfectly rounded belly makes a great template.

  42. That is so gorgeous!

    I wish I'd thought to do something like that while I was pregnant. :)

    No, no, I am not having another child just so that I can paint my belly gorgeously like yours...

    Although it is tempting.
