      What a super gift idea. We always think of a baby book, as in the kind of scrapbook album that starts at birth, but why not back up a bit and let the expectant parents keep a journal of the months of anticipation, too!

      Great lens. Overwhelmed by the amount of different choices and different styles to choose from

      This is very resourceful. The best part of pregnancy is the effort the soon-to-be parents take in trying to understand and adjust.

      Yes, I didn't realize there were so many choices, thank you.

      Sure absolutely - for my wife of course. What we find gets overlooked is PICTURES! Great lens.

      Thank you. It's very useful for me as the first time getting pregnant because those journals are exactly I want.

      Great lens. I wish I had made a journal during my first pregnancy. Will certainly be doing one for my second! Thanks for the inspiration!

      This is a great idea. I really wish I had kept a pregnancy journal when I was pregnant with my daughter.

      So cute! Sometimes I wish I could be pregnant again just to do the things I didn't do when I was pregnant (like keep a journal, I did however write in one for 3 months after my daughter was born). But that's not a very good reason to bring another person into the world, I know.

      This is a great idea. I too wish I had thought of this when I was pregnant (over 30 years ago). Going to get one for my daughter.

      Great Idea with using your Journal to express your feelings and direct them towards your soon to be baby. The great thing is sometimes we don't have something to write about and having a specific direction in your post you can see what you are linking towards.

      Yes I want to share with my child how I am feeling though out my pregancy. My mom did one for me and I am having my first so I want to share the same with he.

      Keeping a journal as a keepsake for the new baby is a great idea. Starting it during your pregnacy and adding to it like a scrapbook after baby is born would really be something to look back on. Wish I had thought to do that with my kids. *Squid Angel Blessed* and added to My Squid Angel Blessings 2012 to the "Parenting & Kids » Pregnancy" neighborhood.
