Default Baby Notes..

Did anyone make a baby journal or write letters to their baby before he/she was born? I'm still in the TTC stage right now, but I'm thinking of doing this. Photos, notes, letters- anything. So when baby's old enough she/he can read what mama was thinking or doing or just that mama loves him/her.

That's really sweet. I did a journal with my first, mostly recording things like check ups, how I felt, and the birth.

I just wrote my first letter. Prolly embarrass the hell outta the kid. But when she/he's my age, it'll bring a smile probably.

With both of my girls I had a book called "My Pregnacy Journal". At least I think that's what it's called...

Blame it on the cell phone...

Doing that while still TTC might be a little soon.... but good luck!

I had pregnancy journals for both of mine.

I have a pregnancy journal I got free from my insurance company. I could have made my own, I suppose, but this one is nice. I record what goes on each week, doctor visits, how I'm feeling, etc. I also wrote a letter to go in her baby book. There are places in the baby book to record when we found out and how we celebrated and all that stuff. I didn't really do anything before becoming pregnant.

It is early!! But we've been trying so long, I figure why not tell baby about the journey. Only done 1 letter so far. But it was a sweet intro.

On and off, 14 years may as well say. We stopped for a few years now we're trying again.

I'm glad I didn't. Pregnancy just made me absolutely insane and unstable. I cried everyday, tried to hide in my house, and I was just super depressed. I wouldn't want my daughter reading details of my hormones/feelings being out of whack, and blaming it on herself.

I love my daughter and I would want more, but I don't think I could really go through another one. It makes me sad sometimes.

I had horrible, miserable pregnancies and it's been interesting/funny to go back and read what I wrote about how I was feeling. I think my daughters will get a kick out of reading it.

Blame it on the cell phone...

I'm sorry your experience was terrible. But who knows? The next may be better now that you know what to expect.
