Pregnancy Journal - are you keeping one?

I?m sort of a freak when it comes to being organised, so with pregnancy being one of things that I need to be as prepared for as possible with as much information and prior planning as possible I ordered my baby journal! I got the ?What to expect when you?re expecting? pregnancy journal which has each day of your pregnancy, each week, an exercise and food tracker, appointment tracker, birth plan, labour details ? so much fun for a freak like me!!

 

Have you/are you going to keep one?

      I am a "freak" (never thought of calling people like us that lol) also. I am keeping a kind of pregnancy journal. I have the BOOK "what to expect when you're expecting" but, not the journal. I didn't even know they had one. That's upsetting. Since I found out that I was pregnant, I have been writing my baby letters, I have been tracking how I am feeling and I've been taking pictures of my stomach every day. I am making a scrapbook currently with my first ultrasound picture in it and some quotes that my fiance and I have said that were funny, knowledgeable to the baby etc. that are glued on the side. I am very organized when it comes to this also, and here I am now.... getting gitty and excited to find another freak :) 

                Congratulations and good luck! (happy pregnancy planning)

    Lol sorry I don?t think that being organised is freakish I just feel like a freak with all of my lists lol.

     

    Oh wow I love the scrapbook idea, that will be an amazing gift for your little one when they are older and for you after baby is born as well!

    No, but I think I might start a blog. I won't share the address with anyone (except DH!) and it will be completely private but it would be a good way for me to include pictures and write stuff down that I/we can look back on. In a way it would be a digital scrapbook.

    The Belly Book is a good one. It's a weekly journal and you can add a pic for each week, ultrasound pics, info about appointments, etc. I used it for DD and have one now for this baby. I couldn't find anything that compared. It's nice.

    I have a blog and have been doing regular posts (I've been doing by weekly during the first tri) about how I'm feelings, symptoms, cravings, etc.

    I haven't officially come out to a lot of people, so I still have the posts pended, but I'll post them in a few weeks.

    Since I've had 2 m/c in the past, I decided I wouldnt keep one till im in my 2nd trimester and in the clear of m/c. Im going to make mine myself since im a little crafty diva lol. I will also be making a virtual scrapbook to send to my DH in e-mails every week, since he will be away for combat training with the Marines my whole 2nd trimester.

    Yep! I know I'll want to remember these little things later, so I started a pregnancy blog. It's in my siggy. I plan on sharing it with people that ask about it. If there's anything I don't want people to read, I can mark it as a draft or make a certain post private. 

    It's also nice to be able put my thoughts somewhere since we aren't really telling people yet.

    I kept one with Ds and I started one for this LO while I was still TTC. I wanted to share my thoughts/emotions while I was still hoping for my bfp. I don't know if I wrote them for me to look back on, or if I plan to give it to my kids when they grow up.

    I am also an "organized freak" and will be keeping a journal. Hallmark has a cute one I plan to pick up if we get a heartbeat tomorrow at our 6 week ultrasound. :)

    I started a blog, but I'm not really feeling inspired yet. I also bought "The Belly Book" and started writing in that which is really cute so far! I love little keepsakes like that and I think it will be fun to fill out with pictures and everything.

    I started a blog when we started TTC and it helped me through the m/c. We are taking weekly belly pics and I plan to make a scrap book after LO is born to include my weekly update, belly pics, all the ultrasound pics, and pictures of the baby.
