by Photo by Jessica Milligan From Apps to Gender Reveal Parties, This is Not Your Mother���s Baby Bump Having a baby ��� especially your first ��� is one of the most celebratory moments you���ll ever have. It���s everything from hearing ���Yes, the test came back positive��� to enjoying showers and well wishes from those you know and even strangers. More recently, it���s also the ���Likes��� and comments via social media and sharing sonograms with countless friends and family in cyberspace. Modern pregnancy simply isn���t what it used to be. People are having gender reveal parties and in-home ultrasound gatherings and using mobile apps to track the growth of their baby-to-be. Pregnancy and those ���baby bumps��� are being celebrated like never before. SPRING 20 1 3 By Jennifer Mitchell Parmley BALLANTYNE MAGAZINE 51
