Really early thinking w/ Maternity photos....

    I'm having them done around 21 weeks because that's when the photographer wanted (she's new to maternity photography and wanted to use me for her portfolio ....cheaper for me!) I also am having twins and am showing already at 11 weeks
    TTC 2 years- Me and DH (28) with (severely) low sperm count- less than 40 total (last 2 SA showed only 5 and 6 sperm each)
    IVF #1: ER 1/23/13- 4 eggs retrieved, 3 eggs fertilized; ET with 1 embryo 1/28/13 2 frosties beta #1 2/5 was 4.8- beta #2 2/7 3.5; BFN
    FET #1- transferred one beautiful 4AA embie. Praying this is my take home baby. Beta 5/7/13- BFFN!!!
    IVF #2: ER 7/17/13: 6R/3F- transferred 1 blast and 1 10 cell embryo 5dt.   Beta hell.  #1 2.5, #2 2.2- BFFFN! REALLY?
    IVF #3: ER 12/1 and only 2 retrieved.  1 fertilized with ICSI.  Was planning on transferring one fresh and one frozen....fresh was only 14 cells at day 5...CANCELLED and devastated due to 5cm blood filled cyst in ovary and blood in uterus.
    IVF #4: Antagonist protocol with endometrial scratch day one of stims.  ER 4/21: 6R/4M/3F- transferred 2 beautiful blasts (5dt) and one was hatching!  No frosties but hoping we won't need it!  Beta 5/4/14- 444(8dp5dt), Beta #2 10dp5dt 1002!  THIS HAS GOT TO BE IT!!!!!!!!!!  First US 5/15 we saw two of the most beautiful gestational and yolk sacs I have ever seen!  
    ****FINALLY PREGNANT WITH DI/DI TWINS!!!!!!!  

    BRINLEY AND RILEY LONG.  Born November 20, 2014 at 32 wks 3 days.  4lbs7oz and 4lbs5oz.  1 month NICU time for "B's" and growing and feeding.  Now healthy, thriving, beautiful little girls!

  • I think that would be a good time, because you will not be super big at that point.  You might have more energy than you will have after 32 weeks, etc.

  • 25 weeks would probably be good. I felt pretty decent around that time and my double chin wasn't too bad by then. B-)

  • I'm having mine done tonight and I'm almost 25 weeks. At this week's appointment I was measuring 6 weeks ahead so yeah, I look full term. I wanted to do them early enough that clothes still fit me and I'm still comfortable but late enough that I'm visibly showing. And boy am I showing, LOL.

  • I did mine at 29 weeks and I like how they look… I don't think I would have felt "big enough" at 25 weeks.  But it was my first pregnancy too.  It was good we did them at 29 weeks because I delivered a week later.

  • I did mine at 30 weeks. I felt huge but didn't think I was overly huge yet. My photographer wanted to wait a few weeks because she usually doesn't take maternity pics until 38 weeks but I told her I definitely wasn't waiting that long! I think I had them taken at a good time!
