I had a lady offer to do this for me for free just so she could use the pics for her portfolio.
I would do it if i really wanted the pics. There will be nurses in there that you dont know too and will prob never see again, so whats the differance. And you will have some amazing pictures that will give you lasting memories forever! You hubby will be able to totally concentrate on you and wont even have to worry about pics. I think its a win win. You wont even know shes there, and those make for the best pics when you dont know they are being taken.

your dates seem to match up. my last period only last 3 days and also very light (usually im 6-7 days at least) but after actively trying for months my periods got a lot shorter and lighter. I had my last period on oct 10th. Im due July 17th.
So yours sounds about right.

I'm probably in the minority on this, but I wouldn't be able to do to that lol. I'm very particular about who is in the room though, or at least I was with DS.



However, if this type of photography is what they do for a living, chances are they've seen plenty of births and would forget the details as soon as their job is done just like the nurses do. If they were able to stay out of the way and not call attention to themselves maybe you won't notice them and will get some great pictures out of it!

Here is a couple pics.
Almost 33 weeks <a href=321day_zps10551f29.jpg" />

IDK, I think the only reason I am considering it is because DH wants it, and I want him to be happy. I am kinda a photo nerd as a photography major, so that kinda helps too... other than that, I am like HELL NO lol

1 kg = 2.2 lbs, so you gained just a touch over a pound a week - at this point in the game, I'd say you're doin pretty darn good! lol

I'm strangely jealous of you ladies lol....I'm still 3-5 lbs under where I was when I got pregnant. I got back up to my starting weight one week, but it dropped off by my next appointment. I get a lecture at every appointment about it.

totally not the goal...I WANT to put on some weight. I feel bad about it anyways, and then the doctor keeps asking if I'm dieting and it's just....ugh.
