Brooke Burke is now in week 39 of her pregnancy with herfourth child and first son, due in March 15th. Here, the 36-year-old actress, model, andTV host writes on her Baboosh Baby blog about sadness at the end of pregnancy and having maternity portraits taken.
I’m still pregnant! It will not be much longer though. This pregnancy has actually gone by really fast. Now that I am nearing the end, there is a bit of sadness attached, knowing that it is my last.
I cannot express how important it is to cherish certain moments during your pregnancy. I have really bonded with my son during the last few months. I will miss being pregnant even though I look forward to holding my baby

I know that being pregnant is an incrediblychallenging time, and most of you are probably not feeling so greatabout yourselves. But, if you can get past that and see the beauty inyour bump, it is so worth capturing.
I am talking about pregnancy photos. I had a great experience shooting with Linnea Lenkus, who is one of the best celebrity portrait photographers around, and she specializes in maternity photography.
It is such a personal thing, but she made it so comfortable andintimate that I have had two sessions with her during both of mypregnancies. I will return to her again to photograph my son. Myfirst session was with Neriah and Sierra while I was pregnant with Rain. I went back several weeks ago with Davidto shoot Rain and my growing belly. Once my son has arrived, Linneawill shoot him and then I will have a whole story. You can take a lookat my photo shoot at this address.
I really hope you take the time to capture yourpregnancy on film. It is priceless. Do not wait until the last montheither, because you could miss your chance if you go into labor early.That happened to me with Neriah and I really regretted it.
If you cannot book a professional session, at least have a friend take some pics, because before you know it, it will be over!
