I have really mixed feelings about posting “belly” photos. I have lots of friends and family whom I don’t see regularly and want to see the progress of my pregnancy, but I also have friends longing for babies themselves that may find the photos hurtful. Some of them long for a spouse, some of them are struggling with infertility, some of them have reasons I’m completely unaware of. I told God before we got pregnant that I would be ok with adoption if that’s the path He wanted for us. We tried for several months to get pregnant, and even in that short amount of time, I felt my heart ache a little more each month. I know it’s nothing compared to what others go through regarding infertility, but I do get what it’s like to long for a child. For some reason God has blessed us with a growing baby, and I will not take my pregnancy or my baby for granted – we both thank God for what we’ve been given.
I know that once our baby is born, I’ll want to post photos of him or her on facebook and my blog all the time. Yet I want to be sensitive of those around me, so I’ll try to limit my posts. Please know I never mean to boast about what’s going on in my life, nor do I mean to hurt anyone when I share my photos.
With that being said, please click here if you’d like to see my most recent “belly” photos. My husband and I did an impromptu maternity photo session near midnight in front of our Christmas tree right before the holiday.

Celebrate!! You are creating a miracle. Blessings! Brenda
Hi, very nice photos, guess what, my wife is pregnant too and will soon meet our baby in Feb. It was not easy for us to have a baby as we struggled for around three years. But I completely endorse your thoughts on having a baby. You guys look great, Congratulation 🙂 and all the best … God bless 🙂
I appreciate your comment. Congratulations to you! We’re just a few weeks apart – I’m due March 10. 🙂
Thank you and All the best 🙂
We’re so excited for you both. Having a baby (babies) is the best thing we’ve ever done. It’s such a miracle. You look beautiful Lindy, great pictures. Love your Christmas tree too.
Thank you Christina, I miss you! I hope you and your family had a fabulous Christmas, and Happy New Year!
I feel that way too sometimes, as far as posting pics of our family on facebook or whatever. It’s not to show off. but just a small way for those who live really far away from us to see our baby and kind of get to know him/us a bit. Plus, my friends who don’t have kids are always putting photos of their travels, so…..I figure that evens things out..right? .hehehe! 😉
