On occasion I find myself impatient, just wanting her to get here already so I can meet her. But most of the time I'm perfectly happy being right where I'm at. I like having her inside of me. I giggle when I rest the laptop on my belly and she starts kicking at it, like "Hey, it's crowded enough in here without you smooshing me!" I like feeling her wiggle and tickle and move, even when it hurts.
And yet, I have never heard a mother wistfully say that she misses having her child inside of her. It must be that much more awesome to have them on the outside, because I think I will kinda miss it.
We will never be as close as we are right now, when we share a circulatory system...
(Yep, I finally went and got maternity photos taken.)

That is a wonderful picture!
I'm surprised you've never heard anyone say that. I LOVE LOVE LOVE being pregnant. I have terrible pregnancies (I get so sick the entire pregnancies I have NEVER gained a single pregnancy pound, I was on bedrest for 19 weeks, etc.) and I would do it again, if another baby were in our futures.
Having them in your arms is amazing. I would choose that over being pregnant, but there are times when I miss having them inside me. It's the single most amazing thing I've ever done.

I've never seen a pregnancy photo like this one before. So simple and effective. And reminiscent of iPod ads, even though you don't own one!

What a great picture!
I LOVED being pregnant both times and find myself missing it once in awhile. I enjoyed having my kids 'all to myself' tucked away inside, feeling all of the elbows, kicks and flutters. Now that mine are 14 &12, I'd like to put them back in so it will be quiet around here

Oh, FABULOUS picture!!
. . . I think I've only heard mothers wish the baby was back inside, when it was to keep the baby safe and protected from all the dangers of the world . . .

I do miss being pregnant sometimes, when I get irritated that I have to "share" the kiddo with somebody. When she was first born, I'd watch her move around and think how just a few days ago, I'd be the only one who knew that she'd done anything.

You will treasure these photos. I wish I had thought to do something like this where it was more artsy.
Can't wait to see all of these.
