Are you ladies keeping any sort of pregnancy journal?

I have kept one with all of my pregnancies so I just went out and bought one for this baby today. Had fun filling it out and looking back at my others to see how they compare.

I keep updates of my appts and milestones or how I'm feeling in word on my computer. I did that when I was pregnant with my daughter and then when I had her I just printed it out and put it in her baby book. Nothing fancy, but it works! I've already went back and read hers recently because I couldn't remember when I started to feel her move.

I bought one and started it and haven't been writing as much as I wanted to. My daughter, now 12, loves that I did the journal for her.

I also did a time capsule at her 1yr birthday and had everyone write a note to her. I waited 10 years to open it. It was so neat to read some notes from people that had passed on since, like my grandpa. I'll do the same for this little one too.

No. For some reason I'm just too lazy to do it! lol.

For DD I did keep a journal for all of her ultrasounds. I'm planning on doing the same for this one, I just haven't gotten around to it yet.

I don't, but it is more out of fear than anything else. Since our first loss was at 19 weeks I struggle with having the "reminders" around. All if our momentos and u/s pics are in our safe right now. I don't think I have opened it in almost 2 years.

I wish I could be more positive, but until I have a baby in my arms I live in fear that it will b taken away from me.

No pregnancy journal here...but I have a pregnancy book where I can write notes on every week about my pregnancy. I did that with dd, and I'm also making a little ultrasound picture journal. I'll probably have 5 u/s's with 4 pictures from each like I had with dd, so that's 20 pictures.

No, I didn't with my first two either. I was on this forum so I can go back and look at some of the stuff but it seems some stuff was deleted when the '05 boards were merged.

I haven't looked into the '08 board yet to see what's still there from pregnancy #2.

I haven't yet, but was just thinking about it today. I like looking back (I also blog). I have one for DD. I didn't completely fill it out, but I did put a lot of the important things in it. So I plan to pick one up this weekend for this LO.

I have done it with my last 2. Funny story (sort of...lol), I went to order one last week and it arrived yesterday, well, apparently I ordered a baby book by accident, I don't really keep up with those well, but decided to keep it since my other two have partially finished ones, this one might as well I ordered the pregnancy journal today, should be here Thursday.
