38 week bellly with henna tattoo


38 week bellly with henna tattoo, originally uploaded by PaulaK.

I had this done last Sunday. The big flower represents me, with 7 vines for my 7 children, and the little flower at the bottom is the baby.

I also asked the priest to bless my baby on the way out of church, which he did, and it is amazing how much calmer I feel, and less obsessed with when I will give birth.

Wow, how long did the henna take? How long will it last, and what will happen to it when you give birth? It will shrink down to nothing. It is way cool.

The henna took about an hour or a little less to put on, then 30 minutes to dry. Then she put medical tape over it which i was told to leave on for 6 hours so it wouldn't flake off. It should last at least 2 weeks. It is one week now and it still looks good. It looks smaller and darker after birth if it is still there, and I really hope I have this baby before it fades away!
