Question by Samantha: What is a good pregnancy journal to get?
I was thinking about getting a pregnancy journal or something to document stuff about my pregnancy. So I was wondering if anyone would recommend a really good one to get. I was looking at a couple on but I wasn’t sure if they were any good.

Answer by Katie T
This is my favorite:

it has day to day notes on what exactly is going on with the baby each day…it’s pretty cool
I highly recommend it

Sign of Pregnancy ? The Unmistakable Symptoms

The classic early sign of pregnancy is nausea that refuses to subside, the missed periods and achy feeling all over. Some women start feeling very hungry while some baulk at the sight of food. There is no checklist to determine the early sign of pregnancy as all the pregnancies differ from one to another. If you look closely your body tells you all signs of pregnancy long before the medical pregnancy tests confirms it.

Sign of pregnancy

There are several symptoms and signs of pregnancy experienced fairly early, even before the missed periods stage. Nearly all women go through it. Some women may overlook it, as they are not able to distinguish the early signs of pregnancy from similar health problems. While some women immediately sense the abrupt change in their body and take precaution. Some of these early signs of pregnancy are:

General fatigue: You may notice that you feel tired, fatigued and lack of energy. A feeling of laziness engulfs with no apparent cause. This fatigue is the result of change in hormones and body chemistry as it prepares it self to welcome a new life. The fatigue starts soon after conception and is generally the first and foremost sign of pregnancy. Do not resort to pep pills but instead get into the bed and sleep till later. Work off fatigue with short naps and relaxation as and when you feel low.

Tenderness of breasts: Raging hormones cause tenderness in the breasts, swelling and soreness soon after conception. Many women ignore this symptom associating it with PMS syndrome. Change in the breast is one of the early sign of pregnancy and stays till end of the pregnancy. It is the nature’s way to prepare a woman for impending motherhood and nurturing of the baby. Slight spotting before periods: It is a rare but important sign of pregnancy and happens before your due period date. This spotting or light bleeding or a pink vaginal discharge occurs when the fertilized egg implants itself in the uterus.

While nausea, missed periods and general aches and pains are the sure signs of pregnancy in early stages. It is best to record these body changes and early signs of pregnancy in a pregnancy journal. The journal records your experiences, feelings and thoughts that can be shared with family or friends either for their benefit or for enjoying your happy moments. A pregnancy journal has a way of taking away your attention from general pains and aches to make you a happier person.

Once the pregnancy is confirmed maintain a weekly pregnancy calendar to record the growth and progress of the embryo to babyhood. This also helps in keeping track of your due date, baby’s development and mother’s health starting from the day you discover the first sign of pregnancy.

Pregnancy Planner Review by Tracy Austin for My Pregnancy Journal
If you love to journal, this book is for you. The book starts you off with a small statement and gives you tons of room to respond. I found it to be a terrific way to document my pregnancy. I initially thought I would not find the time to write in it but I found the prompts made it so easy to write and I found journaling enjoyable (plus, it has helped me to mentally prepare for this baby). There are lines on each page which make it very easy to write. The pictures, of course, are fabulous. There wasn’t a page to document my weight gain nor my waist expansion but there are blank pages in the front and back of the book which is where I placed this info. I would highly recommend this book if you wish to provide your baby with a glimpse of who you were before he/she entered your life. Even my husband likes to respond to the “questions.”

This book is wonderful. It is divided by the three trimesters and each trimester has pages to fill out with your personal experiences. The photographs are precious with tiny infants in the palms of hands and in the smallest of places. It will be a great resource to refer to when having a second or third child. The page subjects (to fill out) are composed of what you find enjoyable/unenjoyable about the pregnancy to advice you have recieved, to what how you are feeling at certain points in the pregnancy and messages to your unborn child about how you are feeling about his/her arrival. I enjoy writing in the journal and there is plenty of space to express yourself. A great journal that I will enjoy reading the next time around and my daughter can refer to 30 years down the road when it may be her turn.

Pregnancy Planner Review by LUV 2 READ NJ for My Pregnancy Journal
This was the only book of its type that I could find. I had been trying to get pregnant for years, so I wanted to remember it all…the good, bad & ugly. Now that my baby is 6 months old, I decided to skim through what I had written. And indeed, it brings it all back! I think this will be a wonderful keepsake. I’d also like to share this with my own daughter if she has her own child one day – so she can see what Mom went through too! This book has become one of my most prized possesions.

I used to use a similar one from Hallmark. It seems they don’t make them anymore. Now that I’m pregnant with our third child I had a hard time finding something similar. This book is basically the same as the other one (just a little better because of the pictures and presentation). I am very happy with the purchase.

5 years ago, I had my first child. At that time, my husband & I found the Anne Geddes pregnancy journal. You can’t believe my excitement when I found that they are still made 5 years later to help celebrate another wonderful miracle. This book is so beautiful. The pictures are so precious and soft. The book provides just enough space to recap each special event & thought and includes every trimester for review! I can’t wait to hand this over to my daughter some day to watch her joy as she reads about her growth & birth!

i really like the what to expect pregnancy journal. it goes along with the what to expect when your expecting book. it helps a lot. there are places for pictures and places to write everyday and places to write about doctors appointments. then in the back it has a lot about planning for the birth and helpful info. i like that one.

I used a regular notebook but had the “what to expect journal” as a guide. I did a lot of things different than in the book so using the premade journal was difficult because there would have been too many blank pages.
