I am currently 3 and a half month pregnant with my first baby. When we told my parents the news, my mom wanted to run out and get me a journal so I could log all my memories in. After looking through many different types, we found this one. I love it! There's so much information and room to write in it!
Size- This book is about 5"x6" and about 1" thick. It is perfect because I can easily carry it everywhere I go. I carry a small purse and it even fits in there.
Structure- The cover is made of flexible, laminated, thick paper. I have gotten water on it and it just wipes away without ruining the book. It has a metal spiral binding that holds everything together. This is great because I can fold the whole book in half and work on one page at a time.
Journaling Room- Of all the books I looked at, this one had the most room to write in. It has a section where you can fill in categories and then write whatever you want each week. In addition, there is a section to keep track of all your prenatal and post birth doctor appointments.
There are so many different sections to keep info in, I can't even think of the all right now! I love the "Complaint Department" section. This is a list of the most common complaints and symptoms pregnant women have each month. Also, though I haven't used it yet, there are sections for baby shower gifts and thank yous, important addresses and phone numbers to remember when getting ready to give birth, and a place to track your contractions.
Additional Info- Throughout the book, there are many little blurbs of info and quick tips. There is also a resource guide with lots of helpful info.
Journaling list- The only thing I have found, not really a con even, is that the weekly journal entries can get to be repetitive. I find myself filling in the same thing to some of the fill-in areas. Although, it does show me exactly when I started to feel bad, and when I started feeling better.
