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".
