Pregnancy/baby Journal

Is anyone else writing a pregnancy journal or story? Ive just started a rough draft of one, but wanting some ideas of what to include. Ive started with the story of meeting my partner and planning to start a family and small life details up to this point (7wk4d) and just after some ideas from here or things to add. Im planning on putting photos from the first u/s and a pic of my pregnancy test and keeping it up to date with symptoms and preparations and then as a baby book after birth.

I bought one from my hospital and.some of the prompts include maternity wear, what did you buy, what did you borrow from friends, what was your favorite or.comfiest outfit. Food, what did you crave, did you try anything new that you liked, did you start hating anything you used to love. Theres a space for writing.down name ideas that you went through before you decided on a name (if you did indeed decide on a name) the first thing you yourself bought for baby. The changes in your body, like when did you notice your bump, when did.others notice your bump, when did you start to waddle? Special things you did to bond with your bump, like talking or rubbing lotion or reading baby books or singing etc. theres a space for people to make guesses on the date of arrival and the birth weight of baby (I'm having fun with that one now, its interesting to see who is going to be right, if anyone!) If you need more prompts let me know I know theres more I just have to pull the book out to check.

Awesome thanks :) I just have a really pretty notebook with a small picture slot in the cover that Im gonna use so its blank except for lines. Scrapbooking and albums are the only art forms Im good at so a blank was best choice for me but gives me no hints!
Im quite lucky I was able to work out the date me and my partner met so babies story starts with our story. We also picked names when we started trying, just need to wait and see what we are having before I write it in lol
