I bought it for myself. Its my first pregnancy and it's been fun to write down all the special details like my family' reaction when I told them I was pregnant. It's like my baby's first baby book, i love having space for pictures and writing. The only thing I wish it had in it is a pocket to store momentos in.

I love this book! There is enough room to write everything down that you need, offers a place for a photo for every week of your preganc and doctor visit pages for all your appts. It's divided by trimester and simple. Any pages I didn't use, I attached the cards I got in the mail from family and friends so that everything is altogether. It's a great keepsake.

The day I told my husband we were expecting, he took me to the bookstore to get a pregnancy journal. I looked though so many of them before deciding on this one. I love it. Its a great journal and has lots of room to write in it. Ever since getting it, I fill it out once a week. I am two-thirds done and i love looking back and seeing what i was thinking early on.. the only bad things about this book: -the cover cannot be folded back so it can make it difficult to write in -it says third trimester starts at 25 weeks, but everywhere else I've read says its 28 weeks.

I love everything about the book. The information it includes is really good, and it provides a lot of extra room to write things down. The one thing I dislike is there aren't enough places for ultrasounds--in case you have more than one a trimester. Also, my reason for giving only 4 stars is the trimesters are wrong in terms of weeks. It's not a huge deal, but it really bugged me.

I haven't been able to print any of my pictures yet but I love that every week and I can write a little bit about what I am feeling.

I truly enjoy filling out the book as we moved along in my pregnancy. I took it a bit further and embelished it with decorations and well as the pictures it leaves space for. I plan on saving it and giving it to my little girl when she is older. The ONLY thing is that is breaks down the trimester differently. For example,it starts the third trimester at 24 weeks and now it seems the third trimester starts officially at 28 weeks. It really is just a minor thing. I highly recommend it because once baby is here you won't remember too much :-)

My daughter enjoyed this journal so much with her first child that she wanted the same one for baby #2!

I'm a first time mommy and was looking for a baby book that wouldn't overwhelm me. I looked at a dozen or so and then found this. I adore this book. It allows you to track your belly photographs every week of your pregnancy and write little notes/funny stories each week. There are places for your ultrasound pictures, prenatal appointments and fun little questionnaires that you may have never considered documenting. I love that it ends with babies birth. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes to journal and wants to have something entertaining to traumatize their children with when they're grown.

I purchased this book at the end of my first trimester and I have had so much fun going back through and filling in the first three months of my pregnancy. Luckily I had kept really great track of EVERYTHING on my calendar on my phone, so even the tiniest details made it into the book. I can't wait to print out my belly pics from each week and put them in the book - this is such a great book and I would absolutely recommend it!

I took a weekly belly picture and the Belly Book was a great place to store all the fun memories of my growing belly and preganancy!

I don't really have anything to complain about this book. I honestly purchased it solely on the ratings other buyers posted. It's fun to fill out too. The only thing I haven't really used is the reserved spots for pictures of you belly each month. Some of us aren't lucky to have that 'cute' prego belly, I just look fatter. :) It's a good buy! :)

I loved this book as a place to write down my pregnancy thoughts, memories, ideas and to be bale to go back and look at in the future, and one day where my child can go back and read what my pregnancy with them was like. I would definatly recommend this book!

This book is really easy to use and helps you keep up on your pregnancy. I don't think its necessary to have a picture of your belly every week for the first trimester but it's still fun.
