I am linking up with Shell over at Things I Can’t Say who is hosting a link up to show off your baby bumps.

I had a bit of a rough pregnancy. I threw up for 7 months straight and had to be put on meds in order to make it through the day. I was hospitalized for kidney stones in the middle of it and had Harlan 3 weeks before planned. {It was all worth it though!}

I took a picture of my bump every week to see how much it had changed. Here are some of my favorites.

This is my bump at 30 weeks after a long day of housework.

Here is my bump at my baby shower. I was 32 weeks pregnant.

These are my favorites from my maternity session with Andrea Rodman Photography. I was 34 weeks pregnant, 3 weeks shy of giving birth!

  1. Your pictures are beautiful! You are the first Mommie Blogger I’ve met that also suffered from Hyperemesis Gravidarum. No one really understands it unless they’ve also been through it! I’m not sure if you’ve blogged about it before but I’d love to read your story.

  2. You’re adorable! And TINY! It’s amazing how differently women carry. Har was so low. And you really were all belly. I’m so jealous!

  3. You were absolutely gorgeous! But I should have known that you would be beautiful pregnant because you’re pretty darn beautiful not pregnant!

    Those pictures are amazing! I was too overwhelmed & sick with pregnancy to be organized enough to get something done like that. But now I’m much more confident & not as busy, so I hope I’ll do something like that with the second one!

  4. Wow those are some unbelieveable pics! You were all belly…and carried low…I’m sure people told you that you were having a boy just like people told me I was having a girl b/c I carried high. Ha ha but they were wrong!

  5. you were one cute pg lady! I love love the picture of you and your husband! You can feel the love and happiness in the room!

  6. Lauren, your pregnancy portraits look so beautiful! WOW! And you look so tiny! It looks like someone put a little basketball under your shirt. LOL.

    I too had a rough pregnancy and was throwing up for the first and second trimester. But kidney stones… you poor thing! It surely was worth it though.

  7. Oh, you were so tiny! All belly!

    And those professional shots are gorgeous! Though, being sick for that long of your pregnancy had to be ROUGH!

  8. I love your maternity shoot photos! I had hoped to do that with my twins, but I was admitted early and on strict bed rest. If I have another, I’m definitely going to do it. 🙂

  9. What great photos! Sad to say that after 3 pregnancies, I have very few photos of being pregnant.
    You definitely Rock the Bump!

  10. Oh my gosh…you had such a cute bump! I especially love the one with the frame. Awesome shots! Sounds like it was quite the pregnancy!

  11. I’m so sorry to hear about the rough pregnancy. I had kidney stones after I had my second daughter and they were terrible.

    Your pictures are all adorable. I love the frame around your belly.

  12. Beautiful pictures. I also had a rough pregnancy (with my oldest) I don’t have any pregnancy photos that I know of. The one with the picture frame is beautiful.

  13. Oh, I’m so sorry you had such a rough time with your pregnancy! Mine wasn’t a piece of cake, but throwing up for 7 months definitely beats my issues, you poor thing! On the bright side, you looked absolutely adorable. Those pics are beautiful!
