David and I recently took maternity photos with my fav gal, Jessica Janae, and I wanted to share some from the first look we did! I am finally 37 weeks which my doctor said is full term but some people say 38 is who knows really but I am ready to meet this guy so I like to call it full term 🙂

I have been lucky and have had a really great pregnancy so I can’t complain, but I will say these last weeks have been pretty miserable! Between acid reflux, restless leg syndrome, back pains and kicked ribs, I pretty much don’t sleep at night – I am literally nocturnal! Poor David too because he refuses to let me stay up by myself so that means sleepless nights for him too and often times we have to go on walks at 3:30am because my restless leg gets so bad! Husbands of pregnant wives deserve an award, it takes a lot to put up with us – or at least me haha. Love that man, he is pretty great.

Hope you all had a good Memorial Day weekend xoxo

THIS TIME LAST YEAR

  1. Absolutely Stunning! and so unique… your creativity is never-ending! all the best.. x Kate

  2. Your pictures are absolutely adorable! Love your pink dress!! You’re such a beautiful pregnant lady!!

  3. Getting so close Amber! I love you in the pink dress! I think those late nights are good prep for being up with baby boy! Can’t wait to meet him

  4. Amber, if you have restless leg syndrome you are likely going anemic you need to increase your iron ASAP. My husband is a blood doctor specializing in maternal medicine and he recommends Bloodbuilders Natural Iron supplement from beets found at places like whole foods market. Seriously, go today and in about 3 days you will be able to sleep. Have your ob gym check your iron levels, too. Good luck!!!

  5. You are literally the CUTEST most PERFECT human!!! Who looks like that when they are pregnant! Goodness! Love your blog too its giving me inspiration for mine! 🙂 Good luck!!

  6. Wow absolutely stunning Amber! These pictures look like they are straight out of a magazine. You have to be the most beautiful prego ever. What size did you get this dress in? I’m in love!

  7. These pictures are gorgeous, and you are so stunning! I have to say though, the serious face is throwing me off. How about a smile? I feel like you’re trying to be super sexy or something? Pregnancy is a beautiful thing, but I don’t think I’d consider it sexy. I dunno- just my opinion. I have 2 babies and while I felt beautiful and loved my big belly, I think it’s too special a thing to be “sexy”, which is what I feel you’re trying to be in these pictures.

    1. These photos are very special to me so unfortunately I don’t agree with you. I was not trying to be ‘sexy’ at all and I don’t appreciate you telling me my photos are not special just because you have a difference in opinion.

      1. I didn’t say they weren’t special! You look great, the pictures are beautiful! I just think you should smile more!

  8. I’ve been reading your blog for a while but this is my first time commenting. I just wanted to say these pictures are beautiful! I am 15 weeks pregnant with my first and let’s just say I wish I looked as good now as you do at full term haha. You seem like a very genuine person and I enjoy your blog. Not gonna lie, I’ve been checking it every day and your Instagram to see if your baby boy has arrived yet. Wishing you guys the best!

    1. Aw thank you so much!!! And girl I am sure you look FAB! Its so funny because you always feel huge and so not cute and then when people tell you otherwise you’re thinking, “yeah right!” haha but its only cause youre the pregnant one, I bet you are a gorgeous preggo!! xoxo

  9. You are actually so sooooo flawless Amber!! These are just gorgeous, Jane did an amazing job. Helps that she had amazing subjects though 🙂 hope you enjoy the last little bit of your pregnancy!! <3 xxxxx

    1. Aw you are so sweet, that is so nice you!! Thank you so much Cleopatra!! xx

  10. Hang in there the last trimester is the worst…….. but you look stunning 🙂
    Congrats to you both! Hope to see this little guy on your blog!
    XOXO

    1. Thanks girl!! And yes he will definitely make an appearance on the blog so you will see him!! 🙂

  11. Hang in there the last trimester is the worst…….. but you look stunning 🙂
    Congrats to you both! Hope to see this little guy on your blog!
    XOXO

  12. Restless legs is the WORST! I remember waking up and doing pregnant lady squats to make it go away…argh. I asked my doctor about it and he said that he didn’t know what I was talking about. What?! Go on any pregnancy forum, doctor! It’s almost over, so hang in there. I found the last few weeks to be hard cause that baby is doubling and tripling in size.

    1. Ahhh so glad you know what I am talking about!! I swear not many people know what it is and its so hard to explain but its horrible!! The only thing that makes it feel better is if I punch my shins as hard as I can haha I am sure I look like a crazy person doing it!! I will have to try those squats!

      1. Punching, eh? I’ll have to try that if we decide on having baby #2. Ha! I remember crying once because of the restless legs. Such a weird side effect of pregnancy!

  13. This pictures are so stunning! Although you are at the end and feeling a bit tired and ready to meet your little guy at least you will have these beautiful photos to always remember your special pregnancy. Wishing you all the best!

  14. These are classy and beautiful! Hope the rest of your pregnancy goes by fast. Hang in there!

  15. These are seriously amazing! You both look great!! And you are so close! I know what you mean about the acid reflux and the sleepless nights. I went through the same thing. I also had lots of Braxton Hicks contractions, which made me it hard for me to tell when I actually was having contractions ha. It is all worth it though 🙂

    1. Thanks so much!!! And ah yeah I have had those too haha the first time I had those I could have sworn I was going into labor! And yeah its all worth it for sure! 🙂

  16. These are SO beautiful Amber! You both look great. It’s a very different approach to a maternity shoot and I LOVE it! Jessica is one talented, creative photographer. I’m sure you are very happy with the results! Thanks for sharing 🙂 I totally agree—those husbands that are completely supportive and helpful throughout their wife’s pregnancy are something special for sure! That’s so nice to hear that David stays up with you 🙂 Have a great day Amber! xo

    1. Thanks Brooke!! You are the absolute sweetest! And yeah Jessica really is so talented – she kills me! Hope you are having a good week! xx

  17. Seriously the most gorgeous maternity shoot Amber! I love classy, stylish shoots like this versus the typical maternity pics. You’ve been such an inspiration on how to be fit and fashionable while pregnant 🙂
