An art pregnancy journal

During pregnancy, your creative juices are really flowing. You can buy a vintage type notebook and make an art journal. It is basically a journal not just for writing, but also for creating. You can use ink, charcoal or coloured crayons to write in your journal. You can also draw, add cut-outs, make a collage or anything that comes to mind. The journal entries can be just short thoughts related to your pregnancy.

Collect good wishes

Once you announce your pregnancy to the world, you are bound to receive a lot of wishes from friends, family, co-workers and even strangers. You can collect all these in electronic form, print them out for a scrapbook or write them in your pregnancy journal. You can also make a friendship book where people can add their thought for the new baby. These can be cherished for years to come. It can also be a great memory for your baby once he or she grows up.
