Did you journal about your pregnancy?

Hi Lovelies!

I'm pregnant with my first child and I'm really excited. I had a pregnancy app and one day it suggested to create a journal about your pregnancy. I thought it was a great idea and did just that :)

Did you journal about your pregnancy?

I created a blog instead so that I can share it with friends and family. Feel free to check it out!

Let me know what you think :)

I didnt do a journal until the last month of my pregnancy.  I just never thought of doing it-dont know why because I think they are a great idea.  My mom did a journal from the day she found out I was pregnant and she gave it to me when I came home from the hospital. It has all her thoughts and feelings about what went on with life around us, hurricane Sandy, weddings, how I felt, medical problems I had, the vacation she went on and all my doctors appointments.  She also has pictures of my baby belly for the first day of each month.  It is really cool and some day Angellina will love reading it.

I wish I would have taken more pictures too, I took a few but I really wanted to take one every week and didn't.

Wow that must be a great journal to read! I'm hoping to that one day too but now that I really think about it, it would've been nicer if I was having a girl. But I guess it doesn't matter. It's my first pregnancy and I wanted it to be special. Thank you for sharing :)

 I've never been pregnant before, but have been ACTIVELY TTC for over 3 years now, so I think a journal would be a great idea and I may even plan on doing one myself, thanks for the idea :) H&H9 months to you!!

I think that would be one regret I would have if I didn't take pictures. Actually I didn't even think about taking pictures. It was my boyfriend who mentioned it. And now that I really think about it, I don't even have a picture of us together with my pregnant belly.

I wish you the best while you're trying! I know my uncle and aunty are trying for their second one. She really wants a second one. But yeah a journal is really fun. I need to start adding more pictures though. There's too much text lol.


Thanks for commenting!
