I bought this journal after spending so much time looking for the right one. I am pregnant with my first and wanted to wait after 12 weeks to be on the safe side. Seeing some other journal starting at Week 1 - 4, I thought my journal would have had blank pages as i only found out about the pregnancy at 4 weeks. However, the journal starts at week 10 onwards, and asks relevant questions that help you reminisce about how you felt only a week or so ago. The begining of the journal has questions about both sets of parents, a segment on "finding out" - your feelings, how you found out, why you thought you were pregnant etc. Then each trimester is split into it's own section including sections on the 12 and 20 week scan, followed by baby's first year and first everything.
The layout is easy to follow and enjoyable to complete unlike some journals which seem more like boring questionnaires and a chore to fill out. There are sections where you can either paste pictures or memorabilla or simply write messages or leave blank without it looking blank.
The graphics, images and pastel colour scheme are adorable as well as the lovely quotes through the book that make you want to rub your belly and dream.
The quality is superb. Each page is thick and you can tell it will last for years to come. It will be a lovely book for your little one and your family to look back on a cherish and I look forward to purchasing more journals published by "from you to me".

I really couldn't be happier with this book I spent ages trying to decide what one to get at first I discounted this one because I wanted one which was for pregnancy only but I'm so glad I changed my mind!

It's so nice to have an English book for starters. The illustrations in the book are lovely and not too childish and the content of the book is just right. It starts with space for details about mummy and daddy and finding out about being pregnant and is then split in to each trimester starting at week 9. Each week includes a bit about how the baby is developing a space to write a bit about how mummy is feeling and a space to write a bit about what you have been up to in that week. Every week also has space for a photo. There is also pages for 12 and 20 week scans.

After that there is space for information about the birth your new baby who cut the cord etc followed by a page for each week up to 5 weeks and the pages about firsts such as first bath outing and Christmas and finishes with first birthday.

Sorry for the long review but when buying on the internet I think it helps to know exactly what is included I would recommend this book to anyone it has just the right about of information and space so you don't feel you have to write an essay every week. If you are not so sure about it going on to first birthday I think this book includes just the right amount of information about the birth etc and it would still be nice to have a more detailed baby record book

In my view defiantly a must buy!

Lovely quality paper and text, very detailed with lots of space fir photos and momentos. However no pockets for scans or hospital bands. Also lots of details for during pregnancy so buy early on.

Definitely buy this.
I bought this as a gift for a friend when we found out she was expecting and she loved it!
So much so, that she burst into tears of joy (but that could be the pregnancy hormones!).
It's beautifully set out with delicate pictures in neutral tones, so it's ideal for both baby boys and baby girls. There's plenty of room given for each part you fill in and areas for photographs too. You really can enjoy filling this is and looking back through it for years to come.
It's great that it combines the pregnancy and first year of baby's life after the birth. There aren't many pregnancy journals around and it's lovely to look back on experiences and watch baby grow from Day One!
This is a lovely book, to buy as a gift for someone or to buy for yourself! I wish I'd had one when I was pregnant.
I'd highly recommend!

Great book. Starts from the very beginning of pregnancy so you may have to jog your memory if you want to recollect your initial feelings and symptoms. Would definitely recommend it.

The book begins with space for "Finding out" and some basic pregnancy details. For each week from Week 9 onwards, there is a space for a photograph plus space to write a paragraph on "A bit about me" and "What we have been up to". Every fortnight it asks for your weight, which is useful to look back on. There are pages for the 12 week and 20 week scans plus a few pages for reflecting on the pregnancy and symptoms. The second part of the book is for the birth, coming home from the hospital, and then the baby's first year including first Christmas, first words and steps. This is a really lovely book and I am only half way through my pregnancy but me and my husband are already enjoying looking back through it. I would highly recommend it and would consider buying another one for a future pregnancy!
