This is my last baby and it is a little bitter sweet. I want to document everything, and at the same time I feel like it is still so early, and I have had losses that I am terrified to document anything yet.
With my last, I started a journal and I wrote to my baby a few times a week for my entire pregnancy and I also wrote down important dates, like my first BFP, first ultrasound, first time I felt movement, first time other people felt movement from the outside, my birth story, etc, etc. I also wrote in it every once in a while for a couple of years, but somehow I misplaced it when I moved when my son was 3. I know it is still here somewhere, but it is buried in a box that I am sure I will find eventually.
Anyone else planning to mark the time somehow? How and what are you going to do?
Cautiously expecting a little one sometime in June, and always remembering my 5 little ones that left too soon.
I've used a pregnancy journal with my last 3. I think I'll do that and since this is probably our last child, I plan on taking a belly pic every week or 2. I also never did a big gender reveal with props (balloons, pacifires, pictures, baby bottles, onesies, etc), or had a baby shower, so I think I'll be adding those on the list too. I might lose my mind trying to do everything I want to do but I'm probably never going to get the chance to do this again and I really don't want any regrets.

I journal about everything in my journal and then later, when I get a baby book, I start putting things in that - ultrasounds, special memories, baby's name, and fill in the information about family, what's going on in the world right now, what things cost, where we live, etc :-) I love doing it!
