What kinds of things do you write in it?

I did with my second pregnancy. I wrote in it every day. I kept track of everything from every doctor appointment. How I felt physically that every day. Anything exciting or crappy that happened. And how I felt mentally.

I'm no longer pregnant but I did keep one. I just wrote about how I was feeling and what baby was doing.

I have with all mine. I write about my day, special events, about appointments, put photos in there, anything I feel I want too.

I bought the Belly Book.  Most of what to write is laid out for you.  I love it :).  It is so fun to look back on.

Kind of. I keep pics of my belly and u/s pics. I also write letters to baby about how I'm feeling, cravings, how much he's loved, what's going on with him in utero (problems, est weights, etc). That journal becomes part of his baby book when he's born. I also continue to write letters to my children and keep them in their baby books.

I just had my baby a week and a half ago but I didn't keep a journal and I regret it all the time. The most I did was put each ultrasound pictures in an envelope an wrote on each envelope about that appt. I had 20 ultrasounds throughout the entire pregnancy because I was high risk. I am thankful I did that but I can't remember when things happened during my pregnancy. That part sucks.

I would recommend keeping a journal lol
