While pregnancy can often feel like a very long nine months, it will go by in a blur and once you have your baby in your arms you may start to forget the milestones that got you to where you are.
With so much happening, it can often be hard to know what to document and what not to document, so here are a few ideas:
The first time you feel a kick
This is a momentous day and is a sign that your baby is growing. While you are bound to feel them move a lot more as your pregnancy progresses, there is just something about the first time.
The first day you woke up not feeling nauseous
If you have been experiencing morning sickness from the moment you found out you were expecting, the first day you wake up not feeling nauseous is a day to be celebrated.
How you felt at your first scan
While you will no doubt be given a copy of the scan, it’s your feelings that you experienced that day that you will struggle to remember, so write them down.
Your doctor’s appointments
The first time you hear your little one’s heart beat is a pretty magical experience but one that can get mixed in with the rest of your experiences.
Baby names that you like
You will be going through an awful lot of baby names throughout your entire pregnancy and you are sure to forget ones that you liked at the start, so write them down. It’s also fun to have a look over what names you had considered before you finally chose one.
The first time you really noticed your bump
A day will come when you start to notice your bump when you have you clothes on it will be a big day.
The first time someone else noticed your bump
The first time someone congratulates you about your impending arrival is a day to be remembered because it means you are finally starting to show.
Weird dreams you might of had
Don’t be surprised if you experience strange dreams throughout your pregnancy – some will be ones you will want to remember.
