How do I document my pregnancy? You are in the right spot if you are are wondering how!
Now that you are pregnant (yay! Congratulations!) You want to document every simple along the way. Now, the key is keeping up with the documentation. Along the way you may forget or just give up all together. Don’t! Here are 5 simple and fun ways to remember this time that won’t be time consuming or daunting.
5 Simple & Fun Things to do to Remember Your Pregnancy
- Pregnancy Journal
- Pregnancy Announcements
- Belly Casting
You can take photos weekly, monthly, every trimester – it’s up to you. If it is more feasible to do monthly photos set a date each month on your phone as a reminder to take photos. You can hire a professional or do it on your own.
Also, you can take pictures of random moments on your camera photo. You and your partner buying your baby’s first outfit. Photos of you putting the nursery together or the pregnancy test. You can take a picture of you going to doctor appts and getting an ultrasound. The photos ideas are endless. Just take pictures of moments and first. Tip – Always backup in multiple places.
Create a Pregnancy Journal
Creating a pregnancy journal can help capture all the moments that you felt. It’s also a great way to bond with your baby during your pregnancy. It will serve as a memory book later and you can share with your baby when they are older.
Plus, you can add the photos you took during your pregnancy into your journal. Check our printable pregnancy journal to start today.
You can hire a photographer and get some photos or DIY. You also can get video reactions of family members when you tell them the big news so you can watch over & over again.
This idea I love because sometimes we forget our belly size and you can do this for your every baby and compare your pregnancy. It something you can display and show your kids later on and say this is how I looked when you were in my belly and I think that is very special.
Videos are a timeless. Just like you can take photos of you purchasing the first outfit and putting the nursery together, you can also capture that in video. You can put it together and make a time lapse video from month 1 to birth.
You can take the photos and create videos as well as video collage of finding out when you were pregnant until birth as well. Did you know you can get a birth videographer? They can video the whole birth process and edit to a beautiful video. This wasn’t a thing when I gave birth and I wish I had this.
