Fun and Easy Chalkboard Month-by-Month Pregnancy Photos

When I found out I was pregnant, I was so excited to document the journey. I’ve always taken pregnancy pictures with each of my pregnancies, but this time I wanted to do something special. Chalk it up to Pinterest and its extensive pregnancy photo pins. I knew I didn’t want anything elaborate. Just something sweet and simple that would be easy to complete each month. I found the perfect little chalkboard that made it all possible. Notice how I wasn’t limited to one location with my fun and mobile chalkboard prop for my month-by-month pregnancy pictures.

    Just days before I found the chalkboard, I thought I’d just hold up the corresponding number of fingers to document my progression.

    With San Francisco as my background, I started my pregnancy journey.

    Just about to board the plane for my overseas stay with my in-laws in Palestine. With the hustle and bustle of trying to get through the airport, I was lucky to snag this picture in time.

    I relied on online photo editing programs to add the numbers.

    Staying in Palestine for nearly 3 months, this image of me standing in front of The Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem best captures that time of my pregnancy.

    After my stay in Palestine, my awesome husband surprised me with my dream vacation! He booked a ticket for our entire family to visit Spain and Morocco.

    This picture was taken in Casablanca, Morocco.

    Finally back home after months of traveling, my little baby bump begins to show.

    My baby bump makes it’s social media debut during month six.

    Having a personal blog, two Facebook pages, an Instagram account, and blogging on DisneyBaby, I have no idea how I was able to avoid sharing it for so long!

  • Month 7

    Month 7

    Somehow, month 7 slipped away without a proper chalkboard picture.

    Luckily, I was able to at least have a pregnancy picture from that month.

  • Month 8

    Just weeks before my due date, my family and I took a very spontaneous babymoon. My husband and I took our little family back to the same location we celebrated our first anniversary, Vancouver, Canada!

    In the final stretch, we finally took the family pictures I had dreamed of taking for years! My husband suggested we wait until our little one joins, but I’m glad I decided to document this time in our family’s journey. Plus it gives us an excuse to take a new set of family pictures with our newest addition.

  • Due Today!

    Due Today!

    On my due date, I walked to the park with my girls. By the end of my walk, I found myself feeling very fatigued with what I was certain were contractions! Luckily my best friend’s house was only a block away. “This is it!” I told her.

    She quickly snapped this picture before we left back to my house to prepare for my home birth.

    False alarm! I ended up going 10 days past my due date!
