We shot a couple of more episodes of Soap Queen TV this weekend. We’re trying to store a few up so I can take some time off when the baby makes his appearance. That black apron + table does a pretty job of hiding my bump. But, believe me, it’s there.
To dress the set we use cute soap from recent projects, like these from last weeks CP gradation tutorial
I really wanted to wear this adorable cupcake apron but Amber (I like to call her the ‘SQTV producer‘ though during the regular week she’s our Marketing Guru) said it would be too busy and detract from the soap projects.
We did two really fun melt and pour projects. Here’s the sneak peak of both of them:

We are ready for the baby!!!
Me too! Me too! =)
LOL! No worries. I should have chosen a different subject line anyways. =) I LOVE that cupcake apron. I want to wear it all the time …
Thank you. They were fun to design. It took a while to get just the right loofah project for the shoot.
He definitely is getting a guest appearance on SQTV. We have his own little onesie with the SQ logo on it already. =) We are scheduled to shoot SQTV 3 weeks after the little one shows up but that is definitely flexible depending on how things go and how easy going he is. I am totally hoping for an easy going baby. Hoping, hoping, hoping ….

Wow!!! That´s great!! I can not wait to see next part of the history with our Bramble Baby neither.

OMG! You are adorable! Your baby will be here soon…how exciting! So when will you be putting him to work on SQTV? 6 weeks, 9 weeks…haha just joking. You are so going to be an AWESOME mommy.
Those loofah soaps are amazing!! AH MAY ZING!!!
Lovin the bump! Sorry to start a bombardment of questioning you and your word choice!! p.s. you look so cute in the cupcake apron.
Oooooooh a bikini? I did buy a maternity swimsuit so I could do water aerobics but haven’t gotten to the pool yet (scheduling is soooooo hard right now for me). Those Hollywood gals sure can get away with a whole lot of skin though. =)
He he. More baby bump it is! I’ll be sure and post some 7 1/2 months baby bump photos (that way you can see the growth in between 6 1/2 and 7 1/2 months) when we get there. Just 2 weeks to be there….
The Bramble Bump is indeed part of Bramble Berry for sure! I have the cutest little Moses Basket (a mini crib) at work, a high chair at work and a great rocking chair in my office already. I can’t wait to weave our little boy into the next stage of Bramble Berry’s history.
Fixed it! Thanks for the heads up. Soap is up! And the bump in the bottom picture definitely looks like a bump to me (but it could just be because it’s so new to me! Plus, I live with it all the time!) =))
I’m very happy to be pregnant =) The title of the post is just supposed to be funny. I’m really really excited to be expecting our first baby and I can’t wait to meet him. I’m wearing belly show-off shirts that are fitted and definitely have a little small watermelon showing right now. =)
He he. I love hearing stories like that. I’m definitely up those 20 pounds right now but not too worried. I’m working out daily, eating super healthy (with the exception of a few sweets weekly) and enjoying the excuse to be super selfish and focus on me and raising a healthy baby. At the rate I’m going, I’ll hit 28’ish to 33ish pounds and that was my goal to start with.
Thanks. I love the Cupcake Apron too and I’m determined to sneak it onto SoapQueen somehow!
You are as cute as can be and I love the cupcake apron!
Would it make you feel better if I told you I gained 60 (yikes) with my first child? You are in great shape and will lose it all quickly. No worries! 🙂
I too can’t understand the need to hide…..It is a blessing from God! It should be treated as such. Also, I can’t see the other pictures (Bringing Soap Ropes Back … in a big way! and loofah Fun!). I wish you and your husband many more blessings such as this one and strut your stuff!!!!
I can’t see the bump OR the soap pictures! No fair! (I can see the pictures of you, A-M, but neither picture of the soap. Boo.)
Claudia E says
You look wonderful with your sweet bump!!!! Please, don´t hide it. Remember: your baby is already part of Soap Queen TV, Soap Queen blog and Bramble Berry…..
God bless you and your baby.
It’s mostly a joke – but since I do want the episodes to stand the test of time, it would be great to have things not look too dated too fast. The table and apron hide the baby bump but it’s definitely there. =)
I’m flaunting it all over; you should see me waddle. It just happens! =)
It’s just a natural side effect of the apron and the table – you can barely tell I’m pregnant =) But since you’re about the tenth comment I’ve received similar to that, perhaps I should edit the blog so all the email-only subscribers don’t think I’m being all that serious. =)
Definitely not – I don’t mind shouting it from the mountain tops. In fact, I have to be really careful to not dominate my Twitter stream with baby baby baby talk! But, that said, the table and the apron hide the bump no matter what I do. =)
Not to worry – I’m showing it off all the time. You can’t see it behind the apron and the table no matter what I do =) So, we sort of made it a joke. But I love wearing my pregnancy clothes and am enjoying every minute of this experience.
I’m almost up to 20 pounds of weight gain so I’m definitely gaining it everywhere and all over. LOL! =)
I think it’s pretty fun too – especially now that he’s moving around so much. I picture him as absolutely adorable though my husband tells me that he’s handsome and not ‘cute’. LOL! =)
I love him more than cupcakes too! Though in all fairness, I did eat a sugar cookie tonight. I had a bit of a sweet tooth! =)
Why hide the baby bump? If anything, I want to see more baby bump.
You can’t help but see it when I’m standing in front of you =) And he’s kicking like a champ, especially at night.
Don’t hide him, Mama, FLAUNT him!
All the Hollywood ladies strut around in their bikinis at
9 months…hehe. Soap Queen must follow suit!
Show off the bump! There is nothing more beautiful than giving life, be proud of it.
Donna Maria Coles Johnson says
We love seeing the belly. No fair hiding Bramble Boy. We love him more than cupcakes.
Why would you ever want to hide your baby bump? I think pregnant women are beautiful and should show it off!
You…are…so…cute!!! And tiny! 😉 I agree with you. I love the cupcakes!
Oh, don’t hide the bump…it’s ever so precious
Dawn Kennedy says
I’m sure she doesn’t want to hide it, no pregnant woman does. I love baby bumps and it just adds to the reality of the soap queen. It’s an amazing time in which you shouldn’t have to hide.
Amy Kalinchuk says
I also wonder–why would you want to hide it?
Some of us have bumps without being pregnant :/ You my dear are adorable! Flaunt that bump!
Umm… why are you trying to hide your pregnant belly? I’m truly curious. Is it a continuity issue?
