Congratulations!!!! My husband and I tried for about 8 months before we finally got our positive. After the first test, I looked up into the mirror and saw my face all red and grinning and I had to remind myself to breathe :) Here are a few things that have been really helpful for me (outside of this forum)



  • Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy

  • Ina May's Guide to Childbirth

  • Start a journal (even a simple one, like

  • Getting early treatment from a chiropractor for pregnancy-induced back pain has turned out to be a really good decision

  • If people tell you "it's too early" to clean out a spare room to make a nursery, just remember that you're more agile now than you will be in a few months!

  • Allow yourself to buy a few things for the baby while the excitement is still new and fresh. Celebrate your good news!!

For the nausea, send her some ginger chews. Ginger is GREAT for nausea. Also, some ginger tea. Ginger all the things!

If you can afford it, send her a body pillow. Those things are great for the whole pregnancy (and then afterward!). Also, some seriously comfy house shoes that won't be too tight (as she progresses, her feet are gonna swell big time).

You can find Belly Bars at Target (or on Amazon). These are pretty delicious.

Also: The Belly Book was SO much fun while I was pregnant.

Congrats to your friend!

I bought The Belly Book from Amazon and am filling it out as I go. My only problem is that it doesn't really have space for my husband to contribute. A pregnancy journal was initially his idea so I feel bad about it. I should have researched it a bit more to make sure he could be included. :/

I'm not sure what we'll do once she's here. My husband has kept a box for my stepson with every little piece of paper the kid has scribbled on, so I imagine he'll do the same for our daughter. I like the idea of an email address and I may propose one to my husband.

I'm using The Belly Book

I got a pregnancy book to just write down my thoughts.

I stayed on Pinterest looking up pregnancy pins. Then it turned into baby things once I got passed the scare zone.

I stayed on here talking to the ladies. I went to the chat room a lot. First trimester wasn't fun but thanks to this sub it was durable.

Good luck!!!

I'm sure you're getting advice from a million directions now, so I'll keep this short. But totally feel free to message me if you ever want anybody to commiserate with or ever have any questions. I spent a lot of time on our registry, so I may be a good resource for that, too. :-)

  1. Keep a pregnancy journal! I [used this book] ( It'll be something that I pass on to Margot when she has her first child.

  2. There's so much to learn, and reading stuff on the internet can be SO overwhelming. My husband and I went through [this book] ( together. He read each day's entry out loud to me. It was nice to have that to look forward to each morning before going to work.

I'm doing The Belly Book for pregnancy.

And I just love these Memory Books I found on Etsy. Lots of designs and with the fill-in-blank format.

This was the most memorable one, in my opinion, as far as the mom books went. I'll probably end up doing what you're doing--finding a cute book and writing notes and thoughts to the baby.

I might get this for my daughter though. I think she'd have fun with it.

u/dragonflyphoenix · 2 pointsr/Mommit

My mom got me a "Belly Book" which I really loved when I was pregnant to keep a record of the whole process.

u/lgv85 · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

I bought The Belly Book at the beginning of my pregnancy and have been updating it weekly, and my husband adds to it from time to time as well. It is already fun to look back through the early weeks, and I think it will be nice once he is born and older to look back through. There's also a spot for photos each week so now that I actually have a little bump going it's fun to see the progression :)

I used this one and love it. I loved it so much I got the baby book version and then the birthday book now that my kid has turned one. I'm getting another Belly Book for my current pregnancy so my kids have the exact same book but different answers.

The book has a lot of joke questions, questions about the parents, pages for every week of pregnancy, charts and polls about cravings and other cliches... I'm usually very picky when choosing planners or journals and this one was just perfect for my needs. (The photos in the reviews show lots of sample pages.)

I bought this book which has been a great way for me to keep up with what's happening. I don't have all the bump pics because I suck at taking them every week (or even every other week) but I'll print whatever I do have at the end and toss them in.

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/CautiousBB

It's amazing... I too LOVE to record things. It has spots for like what events happened each month and what movies you watched. What was your craving this month vs adversion. I really love it.

Here is The Belly Book.

And The Baby Book. This I'm going to get after babe is born for his/her first year because I love The Belly Book so much. AND plus side is they aren't super expensive either.

u/a_normal_amount · 1 pointr/pregnant

I tried to journal at the beginning, and even after finding one I liked I just didn't keep up with it once the nausea and exhaustion kicked in.

That being said, the one I ended up with was The Belly Book and to my recollection it was almost enitrely guided.

The paper journals also assume that you're getting printed ultrasound pictures, but my office only emails digital copies of the images, and I never got around to printing them out in the right size.
