Waiting for Baby Mac - Pregnancy Book

It's no secret that I absolutely LOVED being pregnant with Mac.  Maybe it was because it took us so long to get there or maybe pregnancy just suited me.  Either way, I loved nearly everything about it.  So, I wanted to do something special to document my pregnancy.  I love the weekly bump shots, but I also wanted to incorporate what we were doing each week of my pregnancy, document how we were feeling and capture all the milestones and little things that we might forget.  I got the idea to do a maternity photo book from this site.  Her book is absolutely amazing and the photos are incredible.  Mine's not quite so spectacular, but I'm pretty proud of it, nonetheless.  It's a week by week account of our lives in the 40 weeks leading up to Mac's birth; from the moment we found out we were expecting to the time he entered the world screaming.  I used Blurb to print it and now I have a beautiful hard-bound coffee table book to remind us of just how excited we were for this baby.  It's so special to me and I hope one day he'll enjoy looking through it as much as I enjoyed making it.

  6. Ok, so, I started crying when I saw the picture of the pregnancy test because I will never forget that day when you told me you were pregnant and I called you at work screaming.

    THEN. I cried harder when I saw the stuff about NYC. That was the best trip ever and I'm so glad that you and I were able to celebrate our birthdays and the little baby you were carrying. I can't wait to meet him for real.

    Love you forever.

  13. LOVE this! I did a book for both halves of my pregnancy with Elyse...both pre-gender reveal and post! It's nowhere near as fancy, but I love it!

  15. You are so creative! Wish I would've thought to do something like this while I was pregnant. So much better than weekly belly shots, because with how awful I was feeling, the last thing I wanted to do was pose for the camera.
