When I was pregnant with my first, I found this fun and funny pregnancy journal. I adored it.

This book includes pages for each doctor's visit, a monthly spot for cravings/aversions, ultrasound pictures, one page for each week with a spot for a picture and journaling, pages for why and how we chose his name, the labor and delivery story, and MUCH more.

Plus it does it all with a humorous twist:
Is the baby a girl? a boy? or a boxer?
What is my current disposition? sunshine and happiness? partly sun

I received this book as a gift and have loved every minute of recording my memories from this pregnancy, adding in pics of my belly and answering the thoughtful questions about how I FEEL about it all. I look forward to sharing this info with my daughter one day, years from now. I totally recommend this book for the pregnant women in your life! Great gift and great keepsake, and so easy to use and keep up with.

This is one of those books I bought because I loved the design of the book: the shape of the book includes a curve that reflects a pregnant belly. The book is divided into trimesters and has prompts ranging from the mama's reaction to the pregnancy test, first hearing the heartbeat, and dealing with body image in a humorous way. There is a lot of room for pictures and other mementos.

Great book for not only journaling your pregnancy, but also to put pictures week by week through pregnancy as well as ultrasound pictures. This will be a great book to show Baby when he/she is big enough.

This is the best pregnancy journal I've found - detailed, but not overwhelming and a wonderful keepsake when completed.

I loved having this book to help me remember my pregnancy! I would have never written anything down and I loved that it was more of a guide to the memories.

I have bought this book twice, one for each pregnancy and I love looking back at them both, great way to treasure memories of pregnancy.
