When I was pregnant with my kids, I had no idea there was even such a thing as a pregnancy journal!
I remember being handed a few books about what to expect, a little folder from my OB about when to call the doctor, and that my friend was it. I remember feeling overwhelmed and overloaded with information!
After having learned there was such a thing as a pregnancy journal, I longed for my pregnancy days and wished I had one during that time. I feel like I missed out on jotting down the most essential details, moments, and events.
After reviewing so many pregnancy trackers and planners, and finding each one lacking something that would make it just right, I decided to create one that checks off all the boxes!
How can you track your pregnancy?
Not only do pregnancy journals help guide you step-by-step through each trimester and event during pregnancy. But they also help you to track doctor visits, create a birth plan, plan for your baby shower, and more!
Some pregnancy journals are designed to be more photo-heavy, focusing on milestones and memories, while other journals I found are focused more on planning and preparation.
Then there are those journals that meet in the middle and combine both!
So, in an effort to help you NOT miss out on the opportunity to track and plan during your pregnancy, I created the BEST Pregnancy Journal! And the best part? I have kept it very budget-friendly too!
This Pregnancy Journal Printable will help you not only get organized but will help you PAY ATTENTION to the little things that we sometimes forget to think about with pregnancy brain!
There are two different sizes of spines to fit the most common binder sizes. If you have a binder on hand, there is no need to go out and buy another binder. Just use one you already have! Boom, you’re good to go.
If you do need to purchase a binder, here are some great choices from Amazon:
