    I can’t answer this but ooooh you’re going to look so CUTE!  Go ahead and get a bump going on for May 11th so we can all ooh and ahh over it, eh?  πŸ˜‰

    Get some pro pics then and then have a friend take some later?  Would be sort of nice to have multiple sets with different bump sizes!

    i think 26-28 weeks should be fine, but if you could wait until the bump is slightly bigger, thn that would be better!Laughing

    But don’t do it too late else the stretchmarks would creep up ur tummy making it looks like an watermelon instead πŸ™

    I wanted to do a maternity shoot, but didn’t have the financial capabilities back then.. But I’m definitely doing one for my next pregnancy along with my Darling Husband and little girl!

    Most women I know were showing by 25-28 weeks. In fact, they were in the cute bubble phase, not the massive boulder phase. 

     

    The exception is if you were overweight or obese when you began your pregnancy–sometimes it can take longer to show. I’ve already got the extra padding I’m 20 weeks and although I can see the difference in my stomach, I’m afraid that on me, it sadly looks like I had a few too many beers! πŸ™

    I don’t know what’s typical, but I’m having my photographer Brother-In-Law shoot some for me on our family beach trip the last week of June. I’ll be about 33 weeks.

    So cute!  We’re being super frugal, so I’ll likely set up the camera for some self-timed shots when the bump is really out there!

    We are getting maternity photos and our photographer said the best time to do the pictures was anytime after 30 weeks.  Not sure if that’s true, but that was what she recommended.

    I believe I was about 34 weeks and I had a good size bump and very few stretch marks at that time.
