I was pregnant for approximately nine months three times in my younger years, yet this is this only picture I have to show for it. I can’t explain why, since I fully embraced that experience. These days, impending motherhood is celebrated in graphic ways, creatively photographed for posterity.


The first time I saw this pose, I thought it was sweet.


But pretty quick it creeped me out.



I like it a lot better when mama wears clothes.


And this is a whole lot of fun.


Son John snapped this “maternity” shot.


Well, we tried. My arms just aren’t long enough.

    I’m with you re. belly shots of pregnant women. Mom, and maybe dad, feel a baby in there. For the rest of us it’s just a big belly. Sorry, I think they’re gross. But don’t tell anyone, please. I have family who have posted them for all the world to see. So this will be our little secret, OK?

    hmm…was this inspired by some photos you saw recently–taken facetiously???
