I need help with a pregnancy/baby journal

I am just finished making my own pregnancy/baby journal(I'll be using it for pregnancy, the birth, and then the beginning of baby-hood.) and I've never owned one before, so I don't know what types of things to keep track what questions, milestones, and all that jazz are typically in this kind of journal. Can anyone help me out with at least some of the basics...this is my first time so I need some help! Thanks

  • I have kept a pregancy journal for all 3 of my kids. I like to record things like how I felt during the first heart beat, how I found out I was pregnant, how I feel from day to day, how my family feels about baby coming.

    The names we think of, sometimes current events, if they are really big or interesting. I also write how much I love them and how I think about them daily. How I wonder if they are a boy or the brothers and sisters feel about them coming. My worries...concerns about labor or health of me and baby.

    My dr...where I go, how often...things I buy the baby and how much fun it is to shop :)

    I usually note the date and how far along I this May 14th...6 weeks 3 in the future I will know.
