WEEKLY PREGNANCY PHOTOS CAPTURE WHAT WE DON’T SEE
For my third pregnancy, I decided to document my belly growth. I also wanted to add little notes and things that happened during each week. From 10 to 41 weeks I documented the entire pregnancy. In each photo, you can visibly see my belly grow as well as a size comparison of the baby and little things that happened along the way.
These weekly photos really help capture the progress that isn’t as noticeable as we think. They make a great addition to your baby’s photo album and are very easy to make. Learn how easy it is to make your own weekly pregnancy photos after the slideshow below.
The first and last are my favorite photos in this gallery. The last photo is the end product of all this, a handsome new addition to our family! A beautiful bouncing baby boy.
HOW TO TAKE YOUR OWN WEEKLY PREGNANCY PHOTOS
The best results come from consistency. I used the same wall in my house, and wore the same outfit ( just for the photo) in each picture. This allows the focus to be on the changes happening. I had my husband take the photo leaving enough room on one side so I could fill in my stats for the week.
To make each photo I used a graphic design program called Canva. They have a free account you can use to put the shape blocks and text on. The only thing I used that they don’t provide is the fruit and vegetables for comparison.
For that I found “png” images on google to use. I would search “cauliflower png” and find an image to use. Uploading it to canva and positioning it over my shape block.
The Complete Steps For Making These Are:
- Take photo with room for text
- Upload to Canva
- Design and style your photo using the free graphics in canva.
- Add text and SAVE the design in Canva
- Also save the design on your computer to use later.
Once you save your design to Canva you can easily make a duplicate and swap out the photo and text. That is how I am able to have the text boxes in the exact same places for the majority of the photos.
I hope you enjoy the weekly photos of my belly bump and the fun pregnancy facts too. Let me know what you think in the comments. Feel free to share this post by pinning the image below.
