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 took one belly pic so far. I think I will take a pic once a month to be able to see the growth. I really like the idea of writing down important dates!

Something a friend on FB did that was the coolest idea I've seen yet- she took belly shots with the fruit/veggie her baby was the size of. Example: profile belly shot with lemon in front of it.

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.

My BFF's DH is a photographer and he'll be doing my belly pics every 2w starting at 8w. I will probably do some key details on the pics. Similar to this For the Kids / without a pregnancy in my near future or at all... this would be fun to use for kids milestones or birthdays!

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!

This is my first and I'm not going to assume there will be another, so I plan on belly shots (like the fruit/ veggie idea), a journal and anything else I can think of.
