Wanting to know you Wens : Baby Bump Virtual Date!

me at 30 weeks with our baby girl Felix (expected birthday 9/17/2012 *soon!!!)

Even before i was pregnant, i always loved seeing photos of baby bumps. I'm excited for this virtual play date because how pretty were/are you all rocking your bump? 

Lindsay was 26 weeks pregnant with her twin boys (whom she calls Peanut and Lovebug on her blog. Seriously, they are so adorable!). This was at her baby shower. 

Holly at 31 weeks with her first baby, a baby boy named Jonas. I am so glad I found Holly's blog since our due dates are close together (she's currently 38 weeks). 

Christina (my brother's girlfriend) when she was 38 weeks pregnant with my beautiful niece Marisol. {I had to include this sweet photo of my brother laying on them}

Jaimie (my girlfriend back home) when she was 33 weeks pregnant with her son Justin Bryant.

Jessica when she was 38 weeks pregnant with her son Reeve, who was born on March 21st. I have to share this sweetness from her email:  Being pregnant was the best experience of my life. I enjoyed every day and prayed that my hands would know what to do when they could no longer rub my belly. I was so sad that they would miss that joyous, personal experience. How naive was I to think that was something I would miss? Having my son in my arms, holding him, rubbing his soft and fuzzy head, his skin, tracing his cheeks....THAT is what my hands were meant to do.

Claudia (who just celebrated a birthday - happy birthday!) when she was about 36 weeks along with her first born Sophia, who will be 11 this January. 

Erin when she was 32 weeks pregnant with her second son Sawyer (pictured with her then 2-year-old son Dylan). She was 37 weeks above. From her email:  I really looked like I had a giant basketball under my top, didn't I? Sawyer was a big baby (9 lbs, 5 oz) but that was getting to be a bit ridiculous! And would you believe I went 5 days past my due date with him? Oh my, was I ever uncomfortable! It was worth it though. So worth it. What they say about labour is true. It hurts like hell, but you'd do it again in a heartbeat to get that beautiful baby.

Lottie who is currently 29 weeks with her first, a baby girl (name, yet to be decided).

Karina on the day she endured 18 hours of natural labor to have her now 9 year old son Miguelito. I told Kary her expression says it all :) 

Skye when she was 37 weeks pregnant with her now 5 month old daughter Ever (how i love that name!)
Elaine at both of her baby showers : L- almost 8 months pregnant with Dylan (November 22, 2008) R-2 weeks prior to having her second son Kaelan (dated April 4, 2011). I love this from her email: Go figure, I had cake on my hands both times! I was a fanatic for sweets my whole pregnancy. It's a wonder I only put on 17 lbs for Dylan and 14 lbs for Kaelan! 

*i on the other hand can't even admit out loud how much weight i've gained in this pregnancy, it's so high!

Cassie who is currently at 33 weeks pregnant with a baby girl (she's also has triplet step daughters). 

Thank-you to everyone who played along and shared a photo of your sweet baby bumps. We'll have to do a follow up virtual date of mama + baby soon xo

Love this post! Thanks for putting it together. I don't think I've checked out any of these blogs before so I'll have to do it right now. Every day I think about how much closer you are to your sweet baby Felix. I can't wait so I can just imagine how you feel!

Oh how I love baby bump pics! I only have my work computer or I would have sent you one of me with my Thomas... I don't know how to link to a blog like you do...but here is one of me and your Twinkie and Jilly & Katy too!

Micaela said...

Lindsay, sweet panic but excitement knowing she'll be in my arms SOON! <3 i can't imagine how you feel, getting twice the love every day. So special (i can't get over that photo of one of your boys crying at the window for you on instagram. i know he's crying but how it warms my heart at the same time)

Tiffy, that was such a great photo of you beautiful girls! how i wish i could have been there (so hard living so far from home, especially now as you can imagine). Miss you! xo

Holly said...

yay! thanks micaela :)

Claudia said...

I love seeing all the baby bumps! yes follow up momma and bay!

Oh God I loved Kary's face!! that one cracked me up!

Claire Kiefer said...

These are very sweet pictures and so fun to look at. :) did you know I met Holly once? She's friends with Summer and she lives in the East Bay, so we met at a bbq at Summer's mother-in-law's house once. :) She's so cute!

Erin really does look like she has a basketball under her shirt! and Kary hardly looks pregnant, much less 9 months . . . how did she do that?

Can't wait to see Felix's little face :)

Jessica Renee said...

This is such an adorable post!! I'm glad I found it through Lindsey's tweet. I love baby bumps and kinda miss mine from a few months ago! haha. Congrats on your upcoming babe ;)

Mrs. Easton said...

So pretty -- that lovely radiance Moms-to-be have :)

So sweet! Wonderful baby bumps - I couldn't share mine because I hid from the camera with most of my pregnancies. They just made me look really round no pretty bump.

Barry said...

I absolutely love maternity photos! I've been fortunate enough to have two of my friends write blog posts for me about experiences with their pregnancies, which was amazing.

I've never had a desire for children of my own but it's amazing how protective I feel around women who are expecting. Always takes me by surprise, it's that paternal instinct I guess.

Skye said...

It's fun to admire all the beautiful baby bumps....thank you for including me!

Rhianne said...

Megan said...
