I bought this book before I knew that there were other journals out there, I looked at the first few pages which had questions about my pregnancy... which I liked I want to document my pregnancy the best I can. Before I started writing in it however, I didn't look through the rest of the book. There is more information in it day to day than there is space to write about your own pregnancy. I was at Barnes and Noble yesterday and I saw "The Belly Book" and I WISH I would've gotten that one, and I probably still will since this "journal" isn't really a journal. If you want the information and a journal I would just get "What to expect when you're expecting" and "The Belly Book". Then you get the best of both worlds. Hopefully that is helpful to some of you other preggo ladies out there, I just totally wouldn't recommend it unless you look through the book first and decide that's what you want.

I was incredibly disappointed with this journal. The author is overbearing in her advice, especially her dietary recommendations, for which she seems unqualified to give as a Ph.D. and not an MD or dietitian, and she lists no co-authors or resources that would qualify her to be so incredibly repetitive and specific. Especially early on in the journal, I amused myself by counting how many times she emphasizes the word 'organic' per sentence. I'm eating organic, I get it! It doesn't need to be every other word! Additionally, she fixates on weight in a very negative and frustrating way. If my doctor says I'm on track, I don't need a psychologist telling me otherwise and her overemphasis on the subject only highlighted for me that she was not a credible or knowledgeable source.
Space for reflection is inconsistent--I would prefer space for notes, weight, and thoughts to be regularly paced instead of sporadic as it is here. As many others have pointed out, her dates are completely off from any other resource you will find, which is annoying. The only thing I enjoyed are the things that she didn't write, the quotes at the bottom of most pages that relate to children and families. Otherwise, I genuinely dislike this journal.

I heard about a pregnancy journal from a Baby show. I wasn't sure which one it was but checking the reviews I decided to get this one. My only regret was that I didn't have it earlier. I got it around my 8th week. It's a great way for my husband to be involved as well. Each night before sleeping, we get into bed and catch up on the past few days entries. I like how you can log your feelings/mood/appetite/waist/weight every few weeks so you can keep track of how much you grow. It wasn't hard for me to enter my dates, I took a calender and worked backwards from my expected due date. It would help if they included a chart to help everyone figure it out though, but it wasn't a problem.

I totally plan on getting the Baby's first year journal and the toddler's first year. As you can tell, this is my first so I'm going all out. =)

I recommend this book to all my friends and plan on getting it as a gift for my sister in law whenever she gets pregnant.

This book might be great for some, but it just wasn't for me. It was a little too "earthy". As a nurse, I needed something more clinical. The book layout is nice, a day by day account of your pregnancy. It mainly focuses on the changes occurring with your baby, but not self-care or symptom management tips. It doesn't offer any additional information that I don't already get from a free pregnancy app on my phone. At best, it could be used as a supplement to a more thorough pregnancy book. (I recommend the Mayo Clinic book.)

Pros:

As a mom to be of color, this is one of the few books I've come across that doesn't have a mom or baby of a particular race on the cover. I like that.

There is daily information about the development of my baby, nutrional info, fun facts about childbirth and child rearing in different cultures, and small quotes along the bottom of each page. (I'm a sucker for quotes)

There are places for you to write in your own unprompted observations, thoughts, etc. Cool.

Cons: The spiral format can be a little weird at times. Every so often, it gets in this weird "way" and it can be difficult for me to close the book properly.

This is my biggest con and so far, a huge pet peeve with this book: The author lists the day of conception as being the third week of your LMP. This continuously throws me off because while reading the book, it is constantly a week off.

Other than that, good book.

Okay, here I am at 6.5 months of pregnancy and this book is a bit wacky. We conceived on April 7, 2008, I am certain of this and have had ultrasounds that confirm our date of conception. This book claims to go by the pregnancy in terms of lunar months, which I subscribe too however, the book is about two weeks ahead. I knew it was about a week ahead from the beginning but, this is just strange. For instance, I am 6.5 months pregnant. I will be 7 months in two weeks but last night, accorinding to the book, I made month 7. Also, a pregnancy dated by lunar months usually is a bit over 10 months (a month lasting 4 weeks) but, this book still has 9 months, just a bit strange. Since it starts on the day of your conception, it should still at least go to 9.5 months. So, full of great info, entertaining but please don't base the length of your pregnancy on this book. Overall, still a good buy.
