During my first pregnancy I kept absolutely no record or detail of the experience so with a second baby on the way I had every intention of keeping a journal of sorts. Haha, me and my good intentions! Obviously life got in the way and it didn’t happen. But then the lovely Kate at Burp! Boutique offered ‘The Nine – A Pregnancy Countdown Journal’ for review and I thought it looked ideal.
Being short on time, patience and with a memory like a sieve I wanted something simple and inviting to use that wasn’t going to be a complete chore to fill in.
‘The Nine’ by Kelly Sopp is split into the nine months of pregnancy with colourful dividers and further split down into weeks. Each week there is space to write a little bit about what’s going on in your head, which body bits are expanding at an exponential rate and one other section which changes every week, such as family, relationship, work etc.
There is a space each month to stick in a belly photo and also sections for scan pics, details of names that you like and a final section at the end to fill in details of the birth and a couple of weeks after.
This journal is American so there are certain dates that fit with the US pregnancy care system rather than the UK. But overall this is a lovely, simple to use journal that guides you through making notes during your pregnancy and will make a lovely keepsake to look back on.
This journal will shortly be available at Burp! Boutique, along with lots of other gorgeous clothes. books and toys for your little one. Pop over and have a browse!
