Maternity Photos!

Postby sugarplum1922 » Sun Jul 13, 2014 6:17 pm

When is the best time when you are having twins?

I am overweight, so I obviously want to wait long enough until I have a noticeable baby bump, not just a fat bump...LOL! But, because I am already on the heavier side, I'm afraid I'm just going to look puffy, and huge. I regret not getting them done when I had my son though---I had a clear round baby bump, and it was just silly that I felt unworthy of maternity pictures.

When are you planning on doing yours? Or when did you do yours? If you have any please post!!! I would love to see!

I asked a photographer in my area, and she has had twins. She told me to get them taken around 30 weeks. We shall see though--I've also read that around 26-28 weeks is also good for mama's that are having multiples. Around 30 weeks with my son I was already getting big--and with twins we will be even BIGGER, so I'm not sure I'll wait until 30 weeks. I think I will gauge it around 25 weeks. I think it also depends on how comfortable we are---when we are feeling good and cute, that is when we should do it!

Okay, so this was with my DS at 31 weeks--

And this was with my DS at 36 weeks--Image

I know they say you can measure at least 6 weeks ahead of a single pregnancy, so if that is the case, I will look like my 36 week picture at 30 weeks, give or take. So, I'm thinking I will probably get pictures done about 2-3 weeks before that. By 36 weeks my stomach was uncomfortable!

Thanks everyone!

And your picture is beautiful dun2895! I guess I will just gauge on how I'm growing---I know every pregnancy is different too, so I might not carry the same way as with my first.

I believe I did mine at 28 wks. I was big enough they turned out great. I was so worried about missing the opportunity to do them. I would say by 30 like everyone else has said.

Congrats to all the new twin mommas. I never get on here anymore but it's great to see so many new moms!!!!!

Im doing mine around 30-32 weeks. Which will be Early October for me. Perfect whether in San Diego. Cannot wait. My photographer is already making plans and scouting potential spots. It is the same photographer that did my wedding so they are super excited to hear bout my pregnancy especially that its twins. I have a very creative team of photographers!!!! Cannot wait...

Can't wait to see yours Navy--I'm sure they will be great!!!!!!!! I may get mine around the end of October early November, and I also think it's the perfect time--I'm in Florida, so hopefully at that point it won't be 100 degrees!
