Millions view time-lapse video of a mom’s entire nine-month pregnancy

I readily confess I am a pushover when it comes to time-lapse videos that “document” a baby’s development from the very early stages to delivery—and beyond. But, obviously, I am not the only one.

If you go here, you will see the original 1:32 video. If you visit YouTube here, you’ll read more about what’s described as “A Photo Every Pregnancy Day for 9 Months.” There have reportedly been well over three million views!

The mom decided, once she knew she was pregnant, she’d take a picture each day of herself as her pregnancy—her baby—advanced. It’s all very cleverly done.

Viewed from the side, she holds out a giant pink balloon and mimics inhaling the air. As the balloon decrease in size, she increases until the balloon is empty.

At the end, she has her back to the camera. She slowly turns around and— voilà —the mom is holding her baby girl.

What makes this video different than so many other?  Well the baby was delivered around Christmas. The background music is a cover of  ‘Let It Snow!’ sung in a very pleasant, upbeat way.

The mom’s expressions. I won’t describe them. Watch her and you’ll understand what I mean.

The message:

She has arrived. It’s a Christmas miracle

I hope this video teaches women all over the world that pregnancy is something very beautiful and magical. Have a blessed 2015 everyone!
