New pix

At the beginning of my pregnancy when someone suggested I get "belly shots" it was an easy, Heck No! I am very self conscious because I was so overweight for a very long time and my ENTIRE stomach is covered in stretch marks just due to being fat...so the last thing I wanted was to show them off, and I wasn't sure how much weight I would have gained by then.

I changed my tune when Vanessa asked to take pix for her photography class, because she shots had to be "meaningful." She also joked with me constantly before my 20 week mark that I needed to hurry up and find out the gender so she could live vicariously through me.

So, she researched and found poses that she like and Eric and I accommodated. Since these are for a class, she developed the film herself in the darkroom at school, and I scanned the negatives onto my computer and played with them a little. Here you go!
