#RockintheBump: Moms, I Know You Did This, So Join In!

This weekend, as I was working... yes, I can call reading/writing the latest celeb gossip "working"... I came across this darling photo of Jewel, who is expecting her first baby.

Photo: Twitter
Jewel had tweeted that now that she's pregnant, she's been wearing fun clothes, instead of her normal sweats and workout clothes. "#workinthebump" You can read more about that HERE.

It made me think about some of the cute maternity clothes I had. Or some of the clothes that I wore that I only got away with because I was pregnant!!!

I thought it would be fun if we would all show off pics of our baby bumps!  Share a pic of pregnant you! It can be wordless or you can tell a story to go along with your pic(s).

Only, you know what? Y'all are so fabulous that I know you didn't just WORK the bump, but you ROCKED the bump. Or are currently rockING the bump, for my pregnant friends out there. So, we'll do a #RockintheBump linky!

To give you time to get a pic ready, the #Rockinthebump linky will go up next Monday and stay open for a week!  I hope that you will join in!


 Huge thanks to Kristi at Creative Kristi for making a button for this when I was a total pain and asked for it at the last minute. She does fabulous and affordable blog design! Be sure to check her out!

Something else fun for this Monday that I wanted to be sure that you knew about is a flip-flop swap over at Alexis's blog.  I had really wanted to organize one of these, but y'all know I'm lazy, but since I saw that Alexis was hosting one, I figured I'd just join in with hers and I hope you will, too! Head over and check it out.


A flip-flop swap and #RockintheBump .... yes, it's a fun Monday!

This is a cute idea. I have very few pictures of me pregnant so I will have to hunt around to see what I can find.

Sounds like fun. I avoided cameras like the plague while pregnant. I did not rock the bump very well. Actually looked like an apple with legs. Oh well, I see what I can find.

Well dang their is one I can't join in at...no Baby Bump pictures. That's right 4 kids and no pictures of my baby bumps.

Thank goodness I'm past that stage. I have lots of old bump pics up on my blog though - with twins I was huge!

What a fun link-up! I'll have to look through pics tonight...I didn't take a lot of me - I just hid behind very large things. I'm sure there's one or two to grab.

I don't think that I have any bump pics either! Let me take a look ... super cute idea Shell, always fun over in your corner of the blogosphere!

I love this idea, definitely joining but, unfortunately most of my "bump" pics are of me laying down because I never make it long before being put on bedrest.

June 6, 2011 at 8:14 AM  
Blogger The Random Blogette said...

Awesome! I really didn't take a lot of pics when I was pregnant. Mostly because I was so ill all of the time. I will have to see what I can find!

Ooh what fun! I have bump pictures WHICH I'VE NEVER SHOWN ANYONE. Think it's time? :)

Sounds like fun!! My bumps from both pregnancies are so very different!

I bet you get a huge turnout - I was amazed by #SeniorHottie.

I wasn't a pregnant woman who refused to get in front of the camera - I have LOTS of photos of my bellies!

Thank goodness I still have one picture on my digital camera. This sounds like fun.

This sounds like so much fun!! Wish I could join in but no one in my life takes pictures of me so no baby bump photos exist :(

I did NOT rock the bump well so I won't be sharing. LOL :)

June 6, 2011 at 9:17 AM  
Blogger Evonne said...

I don't have a lot of pictures of my bumps because I was usually the one behind the camera. I did find one the other day that maybe I'll share. Only because it's one when I was pregnant with my daughter - I didn't get nearly as huge with her as with my son!

What a great idea. I'm gonna do it. Still need to get some mileage out of the maternity clothes investment...

I need to dig out a pic of the end of my pregnancy with the twins- where even the XXL maternity shirts didn't cover my belly! And I'm short!

June 6, 2011 at 10:14 AM

I will totally rock the bump tomorrow. :)

June 6, 2011 at 10:20 AM  
Blogger Heidi said...

Cute idea! I don't think I have any pic's though. I'm the only one in our house who ever picks up a camera so there are very few pictures of me period.

Very fun idea and an easy Monday post- will definitely join in.

That is a fun Monday! Last time I "rocked a Bump" was 9 years ago. Clothes were not nearly as cute back then:)

No baby bump, but I could take a picture of my regular fat bump!

June 6, 2011 at 11:36 AM  
Blogger Holly said...

Great idea! I was on the beach~in a swimsuit~ the day before giving birth to my last child, and my hubby snapped a pic. I'm not sure that photo would qualify, it was more like a mountain then a bump!

June 6, 2011 at 11:47 AM

Maybe I'll take a pic of my food baby, I can totally rock that!

I'm doing the flip flop swap too! :) Maybe I would get to exchange with you!

Love this! I'll join in but, I wouldn't say I "rocked" my bump. I look back at my maternity wardrobe and shudder because, it was so boring! Next time around, I'll be cute. ;)

What a super cute idea! I unfortunately don't have many (if any) pictures of my bump... but I look forward to the link up anyways!

Sounds like fun! It has been almost five years since I last rocked the bump, but I tried my best to do it all four times. I'll have to scour my archives for a good one... :)

My youngest is now 14 and unfortunately, I still have the bump so no photos here. (LoL)

I never really "rocked the bump". I was just so happy to wear clothes and not have to suck in. I remember going from wearing maternity jeans for months to regular jeans. Now I know why my grandma wears elastic waist pants.

I may be one of those rare people that even those I turned into a WHALE...and thats really no stretch of the imagination...I was a WHALE! I took tons of pictures. I loved everything about being pregnant! Looking forward to seeing the link ups to this!!

As a mom who was a very overweight pregnant woman, it'd take some serious courage to post my pic. But I'm happy to oblige if other "big" mamas follow suit!

Blogger Tiffany said...

I did not like my baby bump. :( I only have a few photos from each. I'll have to build up the courage to post some from my pregnancy with my son. We did not have a digital camera with my daughter so none are on the computer.

I went out of my way to NOT be photographed when I was pregnant. I was young. And grossed out. I think I'd react way differently nowadays.

Well, here is something I might actually join up to. I'm going to see if I can dig up and scan any bump pics! Such a great idea Shell, and love the button too. Super cute!
