The Pregnancy Journal - Review
I must say, I absolutely love this journal. It is probably my favorite out of the three that I have currently purchased. To be honest, it's not really much of a journal, so if you are looking for something for chronicling your thoughts, fears, hopes, and dreams, this probably is not the journal for you. There are about 5/6 pages in the front of the book with guided questions and a couple lines for you to write on, and then through out the book there are small areas to write some notes, talk about labor, post labor, and record your weight and waist size.
So why do I like this one so much?
While most of the journals out there are divided weekly or monthly, this one actually is daily. If you know your date of conception, you start on that day (not the first day of your last period). If you don't know which day you conceived but you know your EDD (estimated due date), then you start from the back of the book, starting at your due date, and fill in the dates. Once the book is filled out you can flip to whatever day it is and see what is most likely taking place in your body, what you should be doing, and how your baby is growing. Very informative and a lot of fun! So if you are interested in what's happening daily in your body and not so much about journaling, this is definitely the book for you!
