Baby Picture Sundays: Buddha Bellies

Darling Debi at Who Says 8 is Enough? hosts a weekly baby picture retrospective on Sundays, always with a thematic incentive. This week's call to action "Buddha Bellies" made me giggle -- realizing I have NO images of our twosome displaying their tummies that are suitable for web-consumption. Similarly, I am not too certain this photo of me with my belly full of babies is entirely viewer-friendly, so please feel free to avert your eyes if you must.

While I enjoy looking at other women's pregnant abdomens, I was not a fan of having my picture taken while expecting. This is the only bare belly shot we have (and this is the first and only time I plan on sharing it)...and for that, I am thankful!

Now for some far more appealling images of rub-worthy Buddha bellies, go visit Debi!

Hope you had a great weekend - Kellan

You are too fabulous for words!
Thank you for "baring all" just for me :)
Ahhhh! I can feel the love!

You look beautiful... big belly & all! My belly was that big with only one baby at a time - I think you look great!

Barbara Manatee said...

You are a brave woman! Although I was ok with having pics taken (covered up!!), I was never brave enough to do the full exposure! Some mommas have cute bellies...I never once thought mine could be described that way! haha!

MommyJ said...

your belly full of two babies looks way better than mine ever did! I seriously looked like a walking circus show. SO MUCH BABY!!

Thanks for sharing. I think you look great. :)

beautiful pic cheryl! i almost posted a similiar picture... I have 1 of me showing my belly. I too hated having pics of my big belly!

Though, I found a worthy bare belly pic of the twins... thankfully!

Jenni Jiggety said...

Awwww! Look at that cute belly!!!

Your belly looks GREAT! I bare my belly with my first pg and I wished I would have, so when the twins came along, my belly was well documented!

what a beautiful belly. I'm almost too late but I'm gonna have to dig up some bellies of my boys. No bare belly pics of me from when I was preggo. Not very many covered up ones either because I did not have a cute belly though now I wish I would have taken more.

LOL! You look awesome! I hate my pictures being taken while I'm prego as well. You are braver then I because I won't even pull up my shirt for a bare buddah belly picture. I'm not even sure mine looks buddah at all. I feel more like I look like a Sumo wrestler. LOL! You look great in your picture.

Maybe you didn't love it at the time, but aren't you SO glad you have this?
You really do look amazing...and happy.

Threeundertwo said...

Isn't it amazing? I wish that I had measured my girth at my biggest. It's just such an incredible miracle that two babies can fit in there.

beth - total mom haircut said...

Oh, I love it. How far along are you though? I totally had you beat and I was carrying one both times - I was way bigger than that really early on. My mom compared me to that woman with the show who has sextuplets with the saran wrap around her belly. I really appreciated that. Yeah.

Jenny said...

Your belly looked good! Mine was funny looking with stretch marks and near the end my belly button tried to pop out. I don't think we have any bare-belly shots of me, although we do have a video of us making a plaster cast of my belly. It turned out to be, well... X-rated, because it's hard to stay covered while having plaster gauze strips hung all over you. No one's seen it and no one ever will.
