Accepting Myself (Anonymous)

February 16, 2009

The pictures I’m attaching are of my 3rd pregnancy due March 2009. I never let anyone take a picture of me while pregnant because I was ashamed of my body. This is my last pregnancy and I didn’t want to let shame prevent me from documenting such a beautiful experience. I changed the pictures to black & white because I think the contract is so much more striking. I am 30 weeks pregnant in the pictures and took them myself using my Nikon Coolpix digital camera on a timer.

    You look great, I am due in March as well with my last baby, and have made myself take lots of pictures too, I refused during my first pregnancy and am so glad I am keeping up with this one. Your belly looks so cute and round!

    The pics are nice ~ I think you meant CONTRAST, not CONTRACT. It’s important to take pics while pregnant ~ I didn’t want to take many either, and now I regret it.

    You look so happy to be carrying your baby. Like you’re really connect to it. And even in the black and white pictures you can tell you’re glowing like crazy!
