20 awesome (painted) pregnant bellies

Often, I read advice on how to grow your blog followers. It invariably suggests sticking to a theme and not straying far from it. It seems the key to success is being known for SOMETHING not EVERYTHING.

I am not very good at sticking to a theme. Especially when I am fatigued from two days of Royal Baby Fever.

So I’m going completely random today and cheerily present … body painting for baby bumps …

It’s kinda inspired by the last two days of madness, as I’ve been reading so much about the new Royal mum and dad. No baby bump painting for them, I’m pretty damn sure.

One particularly poignant article I saw discussed how Prince William and Kate got 4 precious hours after the birth when the baby was THEIRS before it became OURS. The announcement he’d been born was held back to give them time together as a regular family. It made me incredibly happy and terribly sad at the same time.

And now the rest of their lives will be anything BUT regular. I felt so sorry for Prince William putting the bub in the car seat. That’s hard enough for a first-time dad when no-one is watching, let alone the world.

And then all the criticism started pouring in about how he hadn’t done it right …

There you go, I’ve even managed to go off topic when I’m being off topic. There is no hope for HouseGoesHome. No hope at all.

On with the bellies …

Looks like this womb needs a stronger wifi signal …

Tori Spelling celebrated her her fourth pregnancy with son Finn by getting her kids Liam, Stella and Hattie to put paint handprints on her belly. “I think it turned out so well! They had a great time participating and the picture will look amazing hanging in the baby’s room,” she wrote on her website. It wasn’t the first time, her kids also got creative during her pregnancy with youngest daughter Hattie. 

If you were going to paint your belly (gawd knows WHY) – what design would you want. I’m thinking something glittery. I’m a sucker for glitter.
