Ok so I love making crafty things .. and with my last pregnancies I didnt get to keep track of much ( the first I was young and not thinking about all that and with the twins I was super sick) but this time around I want to keep track of everything little thing.

So I decided that I'm going to make a mini scrapbook or journal (not sure what to call)... it where I can keep track of things daily weekly and monthly

I'm thinking for daily I can keep track of my mood, weight, symptoms, etc
Weekly I will keep track of my belly size with mesurements and pics, etc
Monthly will be a some up of everything

What are some other cool things to keep track of when your pregnant?

Once I get it done ill post it and you can tell me what you think!

I'm not crafty at all! haha! I'll probably just take belly pics.

Make sure to write down any weird cravings or food aversions!

I bought a pregnancy journal and filled it out with DD. It will be nice to compare them this time around. I might make a cute shadow box of mementos after the baby is born to put in the house somewhere.

That's adorable! Maybe I'll start a simple spread sheet for the same purpose.

Bklynfinest77, that book you made is gorgeous.


I want to do a scrapbook eventually, but I have to finish all the ones I currently have going first. Getting to do a pregnancy one will be like a reward for finishing my currently unfinished ones.

I usually keep track of the big things like weight by the week, how I'm feeling physically and emotionally, and what new things are happening, and sometimes I look up how big baby is to compare like 'this week you are the size of a blueberry' or whatever... when kicks and things start, when doctor appointments are... and letters to baby whenever I choose to write them.

Cute!

I have no plans to do this kind of thing, but I like your book!
