37 & half weeks

These will be some of the last pregnancy belly shots I'm going to get in before the big day comes. I was lucky enough to get my great friend Julie (you all remember the super fantastic photographer) to take some shots. We kept trying to get out and take these photos but Ontario weather is quite schizophrenic and were delayed 3 times. The day previous to these photos the 4 feet of snow was washed away with rain and plus 8 degrees C. Then the day we shot, it was a snap freeze of minus 8 degrees C! All within 24 hours... it started snowing again that evening so it's back to winter wonderland. These photos might look like fall, but let me assure you I was freezing my pregnant belly off. Not to mention the ill effects it had on my boobs. We would stop periodically so I could warm up in my coat and Julie could melt her fingers. I even had to keep her battery warming up against my back in the elastic part of my maternity pants. Yeah, yeah it doesn't compare to Nunavut. But cold is cold! Minus 8 is darn cold on the boobs be you in Nunavut or the southern tropics of Ontario. The shots turned out amazing, displaying a very glamorous side of pregnancy. Tomorrow I might just show you some stretch marks so we don't stray too far away from reality.

Yep, I love the fishie picture, but honestly I love them all. Funny that you didn't mention (although you hinted around it) that some pictured needed photoshopping due to excessive "pokey outies". :)

You look amazing Jen (even if there are stretch marks under there - they will go away....it's ok to lie at Christmas, right?:)sen

I'm going around letting people know that I'm now at www.snowcoveredhills.com. If you could update your link to my site, that would be great.

Great blog. Quite creative. I love the photos, living vicariously through those elsewhere and/or abroad.

All the best for that day that will change your life!
