Congratulations, you’re making a human! Pregnancy is one amazing journey. And trust me, you’ll want to remember these moments. You are cute AF right now, a glowing goddess of motherhood, nausea, swollen feet and all! Here are creative ways for documenting your pregnancy in pictures. Take pics monthly—or wheneverly, whatever schedule works for you.
It’s not a food baby!
Celebrate your growing bump with these super adorbs fruit tees. This three-piece set includes one shirt for each stage of your pregnancy, with a fruit that shows baby's size during that time: peach (12 weeks), eggplant (24 weeks) and pineapple (36 weeks).
Available at producetees.com, $105 for three-piece set; individual shirts are $35.
Simply Sophisticated Selfies
A weekly side-selfie of your growing bump is gorgeous. Add black and white and you’ve got pure elegance.

You are all about the details. We have a great way to document all the things: a weekly board to update your progress! This handmade board makes it easy with fun prompts about baby's size, your cravings and other news of the week.
Available at Etsy store Barefoot Barnwood Shop; $28.
Simple (and practical!). One stretchy dress for every photo. I love this one; I wore it through both pregnancies. It’s a perfect fit for all maternity stages, and even postpartum. The 3/4 Sleeve Shirred Maternity Dress from Ingrid & Isabel comes in seven neutral colors and cute stripes.
Available at ingridandisabel.com, $59.99.
We Are Family
Get your family involved! What a great way to help prepare a soon-to-be big bro or sis for the exciting times ahead. We love this idea from Momtastic.
Pregnancy can be hilarious. Chronicle the fun stuff with a letterboard, your bump and the truth! Laughter will follow, promise.

Fun and Games
The couple that plays together, stays together! We love this idea from Anette Dittgen. For a series, just draw the loading image further along each time. It's the perfect way to commemorate this gift that's worth waiting for.

"Monthly milestone marking." Try saying that three times fast! We are loving these cute stickers! In addition to showing how many weeks your bun has been in the oven, they give fun facts like baby's size and when they develop certain skills (17 weeks—baby can hear music you play!).
Available at amazon.com, $14.99.
