Soooo….as we all know, my Bestie, Mariah is expecting.
She should deliver within the next few weeks.
She is currently on the cover of the April 18, 2011 Life & Style Magazine sporting her pregnant belly.
Not sure when they shot it, but her belly looks tiny in comparison to the tweetpic she posted last week.
I did belly shots with Mo (Demi had all us moms thinking we were shooting with Annie Leibovitz for Vanity Fair). I couldn’t tell you where the pics are though.
I thought it was a great idea at the time….ooh, look at my big fat tummy, check out that cool equator line from my sternum to my pube, so great to have a chin to represent how many months I’ve been pregnant, wow-my chubby feet are so SECK-C….umm, yeah, once I delivered him, I never wanted to look at those pics ever again.
I get it….I’m not saying being pregnant isn’t a beautiful thing, it is. And many women say the same thing:
1. They feel sexy pregnant- Umm…the last think I was thinking about pregnant was being sexy. I didn’t mind being pregnant, I just liked to eat and kept focusing on the fact that once I delivered I would be badazz in a few months…THEN take some pictures.
2. They wanna remember the experience- There is this new invention called a journal. I can document my thoughts and feelings in there and remember the experience just fine.
3. They plan to show their child the belly shots when they grow up- COME ON! Do you really think your 15 year old is gonna wanna see his mama half naked? They don’t even wanna mom give someone a peck on the cheek, much less their mom trying to be a SI cover model while knocked up.
Well, needless to say, by the time I was preggers with Bronson, there were no belly shots. However, I do recommend a belly cast. It makes great art and they are fun to make. I did one for both pregnancies and they make great baby shower gifts. The best part is that there is no air brushing or Photo Shop required.
P.S-if the Life & Style folks wanna shoot me when I’m preggers with my 3rd I might would consider. But only bc Mimi did it!
