Interesting how the new mother has already lost her identity. All she’s good for in this picture is a pregnant stomach and French tips. A sign of things to come? Also, sepia and photoshop put this in a Far Side of its own.
This photo just made me want to eat my own face in SHEER TERROR. I’m a 23-year-old woman who’s still freaked out at the thought of human beings growing inside other human beings, and this is NOT helping.
1. Horrible idea. I mean, really. It’s freakin’ gross, for one thing. It’s stupid, for another. And to top it off, it’s about your pregnancy. PROTIP: Nobody but you gives a shit about your kids. Really. We only pretend to care to be nice. People who post that kind of crap on Facebook end up getting blocked or hidden by most everybody else.
2. Horrible execution. Babies don’t lay that way in the womb, the photoshop job is pretty terrible (use the fade tool, you jackass), don’t wear a d-bag shirt next time… Just a generally poor job.
Everyone is saying their photoshop skills suck but not everyone has downloaded a pirated copy of Photoshop.
This looks like they threw it together in 5 minutes using Microsoft Paint. It could be improved slightly to make it look less creepy, but not to the extent of fade and rotating it in a non-90/180/270 degree sort of way.
And to the people that are saying that she doesn’t have an identity because her face isn’t in it? Lighten up. The album is “mommy’s belly”, so I’m sure the rest of the 18 pictures are all stages of her expanding belly, probably JUST her belly.
I actually think this is sweet. My only problem with it is the way the baby is lying, since that’s clearly not accurate. You people saying its “gross” need to get over it. There’s nothing gross about a life being brought into this world. You used to be in your mother’s uterus, you know. And you will probably have babies of your own one day, as well.
It’s not Gray’s Anatomy (and yes I mean the medical journal, not the fucking TV show) and she isn’t a diagram. It’s not only physically wrong, making it look like the baby’s going to shoot past her spine and out of her back, it’s also terrible and cheesy, and the french tips make it that much worse. The sepia tone doesn’t help in any way, idiots. There’s no class to be found here.
Goddammit, that is unbelievably tacky. I don’t understand these pathetic lunatics who think that because something involves the glooooorious miracle of new life, we have to overlook how stupid and ugly it is.
Totally not lame… they’re parents that are proud of their kid, and they put up a (corny) picture to show how proud they are… the lame part is that some lonely fuck cared enough to post this on lamebook in hopes that some of these other fucks are as lonely as him. And trust me, when you’re gonna have a kid, people (who have gotten laid outside of a jar of peanut butter and the neighbors dog…I’m looking at you, Otto) hound you like mad to put pictures like this up…
so not lame… and just because your dad molested the shit out of you doesn’t mean that other parents can’t be proud of their kids.
@ Malnu: This is lame because it is tacky. Sure, you can say that the thought counts, but there are SO many things wrong with this picture. Tacky photoshop job aside, I’m pretty sure babies never lay horizontally in the womb.
I agree with Julie. The lame here is so fucking dense it is distorting earth’s gravity.

- the idea of the photoshop
- the execution of the photoshop
- the orientation (and scale) of the inset
- the pose
- the lingerie
- the name “missy”
- referring to your stomach as “mommy’s belly”
- an aging Vanilla Ice in his polo shirt
- fondling a man’s ear while showing off your engagement ring
This is reminding me of 7th grade Health Sciences project I did. I made a clay sculpture of a calf and foot, cut away to the muscle, and put in a clay tapeworm. Please don’t ask why I chose tapeworms as my project subject. I don’t want to try to analyze that.
…whoa whoa whoa, I don’t want to make the wrong impression here, it’s TOTALLY tacky but not lame. I guess what I’m getting at is that the parents have trumped us by being so damn proud of this kid that they couldn’t give a shit if anyone thinks it’s lame. This pic automatically enters the realm of anti-lame because it is made with blind love and not “look how awesome I am at photoshop”…or something. Does that make any sense?
…or maybe I just don’t think it’s cool to rip on happy people
Hahahahahahahahahahaha…I’m finding it hard to believe that anyone who doesn’t find this lame would be looking at this website. Being excited about being pregnant is not lame, posting any more than one or two unadulterated pics of your sonogram is fully lame (and even that’s not a number I’m comfortable with).
What a lame piece of uber-tack.
@ canuck: nothing, you missed nothing. Oh, except perhaps the fact that this is pic 17 of 18 in an entire ALBUM of ‘Mommy’s Belly’…
It is lame to me. Parents on here, getting knocked up isn’t actually that big of an achievment. It’s not a ‘miracle’, it’s how we are all bloody here! Sorry to be immature but this grosses me out, it’s lame, it’s tacky, and all of you people who think you’re the best in the world for having children need to realise that some people have different aspirations in life than to destroy our vaginas, get vomited and shat on a lot and give up our identity for one that revolves around watching shitty CG kids movies and talking about the size of our childrens shit. good day.
The baby is not in the wrong position. Sure, most babies are head or feet down, but my second was transverse… just like that pic. My midwife turned her while I was in labour, but she would only go one way, so she was a footling breech birth. Meaning, the feet were delivered first.
Anyway, the ultrasound pic in the belly is ugly. Take away the photshop and it’s a very nice picture.
wow i’m so embarassed for them this is the lamest, most losery photo i have ever seen. they photoshopped the ultra sound onto her belly and have his ear pressed up to it looking at the camera?? OMG this should be on awkwardfamilyphotos.com!!!
I don’t necessarily think it’s lame…it’s pretty creative. I’m sure the families appreciated the picture. Caveat…I might have had the ultrasound inset professionally done before I sent to family and posted on facebook. I like the black and white use of the pic…nothing is wrong with the short short panties…it’s probably as sexy as your going to get being prego and politically correct if you were to share with family/fb.
I agree that the picture would have been better without the sonogram. BUT! It’s…different!! I just can’t believe everyone is mentioning the French tips but skipping right over the weird stripper shorts. What ARE they? If I was a dude, I would not want my baby momma dressed like a cheap hooker who forgot to take birth control…
Um, They are boy shorts (underwear) she is in a bra and undies. They sell them for non-preggos at Wal-mart and Target and many other stores. They are a perfectly normal variety of underwear. Her’s are just made out of stretchy material because she’s pregnant.
Gee if babies don’t lay sideways then can someone please explain to me what position my daughter is laying in with her butt at my belly button and head at my spine (which is a rare version of transverse achieved generally before 28 weeks.)
What irks me the most about this picture is the dad with his face on her belly. That pose has ALWAYS bothered the hell out of me. You can’t hear the baby and the only thing you’re gonna get is a swift kick in the face, asshole.
I also think maternity shoots done in underwear are just downright tacky. Okay, yeah you’re trying to show off the belly. There are other ways to do that without just lounging in the studio in your bra and panties.
The photoshop job is bad too.
And black and white would’ve made the picture look WAY better than sepia, but then again I have a natural aversion to sepia tone. Nobody knows how to use it properly anyways.
