If there’s anything I’ve learned through all of my pregnancies, it is that all pregnancies are not created equal. And this one proves that more and more each day.
I love writing down all of my thoughts during pregnancy so that I can have something to look at when I am older and my kids are older. There are often times that I ask my mom questions about her pregnancies and unfortunately she didn’t write anything down ( and we all know that we suffer from a little pregnancy amnesia after we have the baby,) she doesn’t remember much.
Although I write much of my pregnancy journey here on Babble and on my personal blog, there are a lot of moments that I experience during my pregnancy that I want to remain private. Thoughts and emotions that I would love to only share with my child one day.
Fortunately there are many ways for us to capture all of those thoughts and emotions that we experience during pregnancy. With modern technology, the simple download of an app on our phone can have us journaling away. Or if you prefer the old school method of pencil and paper, there are plenty of options out there that allow you to write down those words.
I am on the hunt for the perfect pregnancy journal to preserve all of my special moments during pregnancy. Take a look at some of my favorites I found throughout my search.
