The 5 Best Insta Moments From Beyoncé's Pregnancy

Beyoncé’s most recent and ongoing pregnancy has been nothing if not heavily documented in photos. In contrast to 2011, when she avoided cameras wile carrying Blue Ivy, Queen Bey has been regularly showing off her growing baby bump this time around. Ever the master of her own destiny and image, she has insisted on releasing pictures of herself before major public events, making her — and occasionally Mama Tina — the best source for pregnancy updates. Instagram has become the official headquarters for Bey bump watching.
But it’s bittersweet. For those of us with an attention to detail and an actual familiarity with the various stages of pregnancy, it appears that Beyoncé may be dropping. This is a stage when the baby — babies in this case — settles lower into the pelvis as pregnancy advances. This means that Baddie Bey won’t be pregnant for much longer. I get that the literal essence of pregnancy is that it’s temporary, and that Bey might be super uncomfortable and ready to cease sharing her body with two other people 24/7 — but still… I’m going to miss the glow of her pregnancy shoots.
In preparation of Beyoncé’s impending delivery, it seems only right that we relive some of the best IG moments from her pregnancy.

When She Turned Up With Solange After The Grammys

Just because she’s pregnant, doesn’t mean she can’t have a good time. Beyoncé switched out her sparkling red number for a flowy white gown at the Grammys after-party hosted by her sister. And from the looks of this pic, she enjoyed herself.

When She Proved She Could Still Be Sexy During Pregnancy...

If Beyoncé’s pregnancy had a theme, it would definitely be Gucci. She has been decked out in the designer’s clothes for public appearances throughout her entire pregnancy. However, this all-black-everything ensemble was a look.

This Footage Of Blue Ivy Kissing Her Belly

To celebrate her 9th wedding anniversary, Beyoncé shared a video with a snippet of her 2015 song, “Die With You.” It included home video footage of Bey and Jay's relationship before and after they had kids. The highlight was a clip of Blue Ivy delivering some transdermal smooches to her younger siblings.

The Announcement

Obviously, none of these moments trumps her actual pregnancy announcement. She broke the internet and Instagram’s record for the most-liked picture on the platform when she posed amongst a shrine of flowers in Agent Provocateur lingerie.
