When I first found out I was pregnant with Cohen, I signed up on Baby Center for their weekly updates. I loved reading about what was going on with my baby and body.
I also decided to blog about each week in pregnancy. I created list of them here. I can’t tell you how thankful I am for this. Once we found out about Cohen’s heart, I also blogged about that. I did weekly updates on how I was feeling, new baby goodies, baby kicks, doctor’s appointments and so forth.
I did the weekly blog updates with the twins as well, but I didn’t do the Baby Center calendar because things were quite different with twins! I did have a few sites I went to that would give me an idea of what was going on with the two dumplings I was growing. If I couldn’t remember what week I was, I could always go back and look at the previous weeks “Prego Mego” post!
I’d say in general I’ve always been a bit modest; not overly modest, but just a tad reserved, I guess. Therefore I did hesitate to post bare belly pictures for a while, but then I just decided pregnancy was human nature and I really did want to document it in my journal. Thanks to blogging, I can do that with words and pictures.
I did bare belly in the weekly posts, but here I am with the twins that I collaged…
That’s maybe my favorite thing about my blog. I get to look back and remember moments; I can feel them. I love to see my belly with Cohen compared to my belly with the twins.
When Knox & Sloane were born, I continued to do weekly posts for them, which I also love looking back on.
Did you document your pregnancy/ies or do you plan to?
