Recently while I was eating snack with my daughter the baby started kicking like crazy. I told her that this baby must really like grapes because he was going nuts! She smiled and sweetly asked, “What kind of snacks did I like when I was growing in your belly?”
I was stumped. That was six years ago now and I only have one very vague memory of almost knocking my husband down to get to the chocolate chip cookies. But what else did I eat and love? I have no idea because I wasn’t smart or savvy enough to keep a journal while pregnant.
I’m sure at the time I thought–oh, I’ll just document everything once the baby gets here in her Baby Book. (Ha ha HA! Naive woman.) But now I know better. If I want to remember anything about this pregnancy I need to write it down right now, as it’s happening, instead of trying to remember later when those sweet pregnancy memories are replaced with spit-up and diapers.
Here are my top picks for pregnancy journals:
