There are so many things to keep track of during pregnancy—weight, doctor’s appointments, nursery ideas, when to pack your hospital bag… It can be overwhelming! A pregnancy diary can help you focus on the most important things.
A minimalist pregnancy journal is a great way to document your journey while keeping things simple. Your journal can be as simple as a notebook or a fancy leather bound book. The most important thing is that it’s just for you and your pregnancy. Record your thoughts, feelings, and milestones.
