  • I have one from DS. I also wrote a journal about the day to day prego things. It's nice for me to look back on and read. I think he will like one day too.

  • it's a good way to keep those memories, it can get a bit hectic though. just remember to take lots of pictures and write things down.

  • This is my 5th and I am doing it finally since I never did it before. I have a day by day pregnancy book and I jot down a little something every day so I won't forget. I also plan on taking a belly pic every week after I start to show and plan to take a picture of the baby every day for the 1st year. I'm only doing so much because I literally did nothing like it with my other 4. I'm also having a baby shower this time around and I've never done that before either.

    I did keep a weekly journal when I was pregnant with my 1st. Started around 30 weeks and I wrote until she was a few months old. I was a teen mom then and it's really cool to look back and see what my thoughts were back then. I allowed my daughter to see it last year for her 10th birthday. I'm sure she loved it because she kept it in her room long after I gave it to her. But my 1 year old found it and ripped some.

  • I got a great one from Target's; it's Carter's I believe. I'm not the scrapbooking type, and this book is pretty laid out. You just fill it in and add pictures! They had girl and boy ones...mine has a little elephant on it =]

  • I did one. My friend actually bought me a book that is like a baby book but it was for pregnancy. I kept all the cards from my doctor's office, everything they gave me, all my u/s pics...they are all in there.
