Osher Grencel's husband Tomer, snapped about 1,000 photos of her during the 9 months of her pregnancy and used the photos for a stop-motion video.
The video shows when the pregnancy began only as a bump at two and three months and follows its growth transformation through five and six months when it accelerates and gets really big at seven and eight months.
A scan of the pregnancy at 4 months revealed the expected baby is a girl.
After Emma was born, Tomer spent a month assembling the images into a stop-motion video that told the entire story of nine months in just four minutes.
The video posted to YouTube in July, under the user name BachiRules, has received over 300,000 views. Encouraged by its success, Osher and Tomer have continued the photography project in a new blog, babyRules.me.
The video includes a cartoon sequence in which Osher appears to be dreaming about chocolates falling from trees.
The sequence sets the different stages of pregnancy side-by-side in a single frame that compares the early stages of the pregnancy to the late stages.
As Petapixel points out, this is not the first pregnancy stop-motion/time-lapse video posted online. Digital Journal reported in March, a similar project a couple posted to YouTube. The video summarized the entire nine-month period of the woman's pregnancy in 90 seconds.
The Grencels' project, however, includes new ideas such as showing different stages of pregnancy on the same frame
