Does this belly make me look fat?

How many people take pregnancy portraits? I understand the reasoning but is it something I’m going to regret if I don’t do it?

I’m referring to the portraits people get professionally done. They can be cheesy or really nice. There is a fine line. A friend swears I’ll totally regret it if I don’t schedule a professional sitting.

So far, I’m pretty happy with my weekly belly shots taken by my husband. I guess I can get a friend to take a few pictures of hubby and I but don’t know if it’s really something that needs to be done by a professional.

Still, I suppose a photo is more rational than paying $800 for a belly cast bronze bowl. I mean, where would I put it? At this point in my pregnancy, unless decoupage has some magical massage properties, I’m not sticking that cold stuff on my belly. Mind you, the next pregnancy hormone rush that passes through will change my tune; I’m sure. “Honey, it’s like spackling but on my belly. Get the putty knife.”

Don't be surprised if you come to pg's home and I serve you appetizers off my belly bowl or you see a life size mold hanging by my foyer.
