Celebrate Your Pregnancy – Make Some Memories

This is a special magical time in your life. And it is a once in a lifetime experience that you cannot live through ever again. Why not think about doing something to memorise these nine months, something a little interesting, something clever, something quirky and always something fun to commemorate the best time of your life.

Make your memories last a lifetime with some interesting, memorable keepsakes. I have a few things listed here that you can do to capture and keep forever the memory of this very special time of your life. Keep it for you, your partner and your little treasure.

The first and most common one is photos. Your body changes almost every day, in many amazing and wonderful ways. Capture all the changes and stages with professional photo shoots.

With this one you can start earlier, but the ideal time to start is from your seventh month of pregnancy. This is the perfect time as you will still have enough energy, you are glowing all over from all those pregnancy hormones, and you have a lovely prominent bump.

One of the most beautiful things in the world is a woman’s pregnant bump. A true magical miracle.

You can have lovely shoots in a field of flowers, outside in nature. You can be very creative here, but you can also choose to be more formal and do it in a studio. Luckily it is all your choice, your memories.

Another great idea is to cast your belly in stone, with belly casting. This is a newly popular way to immortalise your beautiful big belly. If this is your first pregnancy, you can believe me or not, you will definitely miss your belly once your baby is born.

The artist makes a plaster cast of your belly and breasts, and once it is dried and hard, you can paint it yourself or have it painted to your own style and choice. You can use it as a sculpture or even a wall hanging. There are DIY kits available if you want to do the casting of your pregnancy belly yourself, but you can also get a professional to do this for you.

This one that you can do from the first day that you find out that you are pregnant, throughout your entire pregnancy up to the end. Create art. You do this by taking a photo of yourself in the same position in the same spot wearing the same clothes. You can do this every week, every two or three weeks or just how you choose.

The idea behind this is that you can see the bump grow with every picture. You arrange the photos from first to last, then Photoshop or colour them as you want then you can create an artwork that you can print on canvas or a big poster to display where you want to.

Rocker Alanis Morisette did belly art. She had her belly hennaed. The believe is that Henna protects and bless the mother and child from evil and malicious spirits. These spirits are believed to be near during delivery and this is then done to keep mother and baby safe during birth.

Belly art is an ancient practice done mainly during the third trimester of pregnancy. Henna and stork parties can be combined to give the pregnant mother a day of pampering and greatly deserved relaxation from friends, family and loved ones.

If you like scrapbooking you can also use this to put together a memory of your pregnancy. You can include your pregnancy test, scan photos, photos you take of your growing pregnancy belly as well as document other special memories. These include the first kick and all moments that makes you feel so special. You can collect a lot of special things during your whole pregnancy to document this way.

You can get yourself a DIY kit and do it all yourself, but if it is your first time you may want to consult a specialist at your nearest scrapbooking outlet.

These are great memorable fun things to do to share with your precious little treasure years down the line.

Every day holds the possibility of a miracle.
