I don’t know about you, but oftentimes I go through journaling spurts. I will write religiously for a month or two and then all of a sudden stop for a year before beginning again. After trying to conceive for two years before actually getting pregnant, when it finally happened for us, I knew I wanted to document everything, and I mean everything. For this reason, I was more than eager to review the award-winning Bump to Birthday & First Year Journal by From You to Me.
Created as the perfect keepsake, this 160 page journal helps you document all the details, both small and large, of your pregnancy journey as well as your little one’s first year. The cover offers fun gender neutral illustrations that include beige and turquoise polka dots, a small teal bird and little patchwork heart flowers. When you open the cover you will find equally adorable pages filled with matching illustrations.
What truly struck me about this journal is that it offers so much more than blank pages for you to fill in. As someone who often gets stumped with what exactly to write, the Bump to Birthday journal tracks by Trimester and then later by month offering you writing prompts, milestones, baby’s firsts, and other inspiration to make sure you don’t forget to document any of the important details of your journey.
In addition to offering writing prompts, this journal also designates space to add your pregnancy sonograms for safe keeping as well as extras like growth charts to track your baby’s height and weight and milestone markers to fill in your baby’s first tooth. Want to know how your baby is developing or what you can expect in the month’s to come? Sprinkled throughout the journal are little information tidbits to help you stay in the know about your growing baby! From conception to birthday, the Bump to Birthday- Pregnancy & First Year Journal certainly offer everything you will need to be sure to document it all.
Here’s what I loved most about the Bump to Birthday- Pregnancy & First Year Journal and what I least liked:
- Beautifully Illustrated. I enjoyed all the little illustrations and patterns used both on the cover and inside the book. They brought each page to life.
- Gender neutral. Perfect for those who don’t yet know what they are having, its gender neutral pallet is a definite plus.
- All in One. It makes documenting so much easier when it conveniently all in one place. I love that this journal is one book that offers so much!
- Prompts. Writing prompts are a great way to make sure we document all the important things we want to be able to look back on and remember.
What I didn’t:
- Honestly, and this doesn't happen often, I don’t have any dislikes about this product. After using it myself, I enjoyed every aspect.
Whether you are a journaling pro or a want-to-be like me, the Bump to Birthday- Pregnancy & First year Journal may be the perfect thing to get your pregnancy journal started, I know it was for me!
