A pregnancy journal is a great way to both remember your pregnancy and share the time with your grown-up child. Keeping a pregnancy journal can be as simple as picking up a spiral notebook or as complex as creating an online digital journal.
Things You Will NeedTime to journal
Something to write in or type on
Step 1Pick the best way to journal for you. If you love to create online Web sites or blogs, an online journal might be best. If you're a traditional type of gal, a simple spiral-bound notebook will work. You can also purchase a guided journal. Search Amazon for the best reviewed products. For me, my momma-to-be blog is my pregnancy journal. Remember if you chose the online version to back up the posts you write or print them off so you'll never lose them.
Step 2Start journaling right away. Try to set a schedule, but don't worry if you miss a few days, weeks, or even months. Just start journaling again.
Step 3Keep the journal in a safe place so you can enjoy it for years to come.
Starting a pregnancy journal doesn't have to be difficult or time-consuming, but can be if you're looking for a fun project to pass your pregnancy. Use your journal as a place to write about both significant world events going on and how they might affect your child and minor every day happenings. One day you will be thankful you took the time to record your pregnancy.
Tips & WarningsThink about if you want this to be a private journal, or if you want to share it with the baby later. There might be some things you don't want to include in a journal potentially read by others.
