I have 4 kids and one of these for each of them. They made keeping track of what questions I had for the doc, weight changes, allowed meds, etc a lot easier. I don't think (as a first time mom) that I would've known just what to write down. As I've gone along with other pregnancies, I've learned to be more detailed in my writing and now go back to past journals as reference materials. Just when did heartburn kick in? When did I get to the point when I had trouble sleeping or rolling over?

The cons, as other reviewers have noted, mainly have to do with the layout. It's just not as easily accessible as it could be. I dealt with this by getting reusable sticky page markers and wrote the most important sections down: OB Appointments, Journal area, etc. Another beef I had was that there weren't quite enough slots for the appointments for me. There were periods when I had more frequent visits than usual and I ended up having to write on the reverse side of the previous page. If you have a difficult pregnancy, this may be an issue. Also, they only give you a small square for each week of journaling. I had way more to write than I had space and ended up writing very tiny to squeeze it all in.

Keep a pencil with it with a book/magazine to read in a small tote bag to grab on your way to the OB's. Just don't keep it where small children can get to it...

The previous poster must be reviewing the wrong book or the planner, because this journal and organizer is AMAZING -- and not a calendar.

This has a daily journal that you can fill in, and it has an entire organizer section that includes things like doctor visits and recommendations, a fill in birth plan, exercise and weight gain tracker, place to list all the people to call when you're in labor, a place to write down things to help shopping for baby, and lots more.

I had the old version of this book for my last pregnancy and filled every inch. I just bought this new version for my current pregnancy and can't wait to start filling in this one. A definite five-star!!

This organizer is great if you actually use it. The best parts are the areas to write down questions for your next dr. visit, and what dr. told you at each visit. Also has areas for tracking daily movements (after 5 months), and an area to make sure you're getting the appropriate number of servings of each food type in the food pyramid, daily. I used that dedicatedly and only gained 20 pounds!!!!WOW Also has area to record baby gifts received, thank you notes written, baby names you like etc. and it's only about 1 inch thick. Easily fit in my purse for Dr. visits.

I will definitely get another one for my next pregnancy.

The only thing I didn't like was there are no pockets to put papers, phamplets, etc from the doctor/hospital. Otherwise I think the pages are great and has plenty of places to record your information.

This What To Expect Pregnancy Journal & Organizer was my best friend while pregnant with my son. I wrote everything down and could go back to search for stuff easily. I just purchased this again for my second child and can't wait to get started. From what I should eat, baby names, birth plans, and appointments are all tucked away in here.
I write notes when I need to tell my doctor something or keep address for announcements. Week by week it tells me what may be happening in my body and how to stay healthy. I couldn't have had a better guide for the price for my first child. I am looking forward to the guidance for my second.

This pregnancy journal is exactly what I was looking for! My big things I wanted was some guided journaling...so that not everything I'd write down would be free-hand. But then I did want some free-hand space too. This book does just that. There is a paper for each month with questions that you write your answers down to...just ordinary questions you'd find in most pregnancy journals. There is a spot on this monthly paper for a picture of yourself if you so wish, and there are spots in certain places in the journal for ultrasound pics. Then in between the monthly logs, there are week by week journaling entries for you to free-hand in whatever you'd like on a daily basis. There is not a ton of space for the daily entries, but for me, there doesn't need to be. I'm not journaling everyday events in these...just daily things that relate to the pregnancy only. So it works well.

There are sections in the back where you can keep good track of every Dr. visit. There's also a section for logging your diet (not actually listing foods or calories, but putting hashmarks next to how many food groups you've eaten that day). And a section for logging your physical activity on a daily/weekly basis. Since I am still pregnant, I have not gotten to log anything the L&D section of it yet, but it looks very well laid out as well. If I remember right, there are a couple small areas that have pockets to put misc stuff in.

Another thing I love about this book is that it is compact and small enough to easily take it with me to work and other places. I can just put it in my medium sized purse.

Because I have so many pregnancy informational books that were given to me, I did NOT want a journal that was going to have a ton of pregnancy-related info in it. This book is just that.
