are there any side effects of pregnancy or "belly" pictures? if a pregnant woman takes a picture does it cause any harm to the mother or baby?

Not : Not at all! pregnancy is a very special time and many women choose to document this time with photos. All a regular camera does is record the light reflecting off of the objects it sees. It does not emit radiation like an x-ray machine or sound waves like an ultrasound in order to get an image. Therefore, snap away!
