G'day "aladyforty"!

My opinion is that the first one looks best... background and exposure seems to match best in this composition for me... her complexion, hair colour and white clothes seem to blend best for that softer look... something more sweet about that.

But I would maybe just decrease the brightness a bit (but not so much as your 2nd posted photo).

This is subjective, but in my opinion the square frames / outline of the last two photos don't do the "pregnancy bulge" any favours. So steer clear of these, if you ask me.

Wishing all the best for the "waiting" mum& family, friends and of course child (or children if she's expecting twins, triplets, etc... I'm a twin...!).

I like the second, with a bit more contrast and shadow detail. Nicely done.

i like the third one if you tone down the brightness just a smidgeon..

the first looks more washed out than ethereal to me..

the 2nd one i like as well, but could use some contrast..
