Before you get to meet your baby, you spend a swell (so to speak) nine months getting acquainted with your growing belly.

The first pregnancy journal devoted 100% to you and your belly, The Belly Book is organised by trimester and includes pages for "time-lapse" belly photos and ultrasound images, as well as prompts for writing about morning sickness, food cravings, maternity clothes you never want to see again, and much more.

"Her books radiate fun the way tulips radiate spring: they are elegant and spirit-lifting."
- New York Times Book Review

I heartily recommend this journal - bought it as a treat for myself! It is a light-hearted companion for your special journey. Practically, its spiral binding means the pages are flat for easy completion, and I love the modern styling and elastic to keep it closed. It's free of pregnancy information, instead containing prompted questions (on fun topics), and a few lines of free spaces for you to record your thoughts. It doesn't specifically prompt you about your hopes/fears but more focuses on things like tiredness, morning sickness, cravings, aversions, maternity clothes, changing appearance, pre-natal visits and scans. Each week there is space for a photo of your belly, so if you don't intend taking photos of your 'belly' along the way, you'll have lots of empty spaces. It is chronological, and assumes your baby arrives in week 40, so if you're overdue,you might have to use the back of another page to record your thoughts! I like that it doesn't contain photos of other mothers and babies like many of its competitors. This is a special momento I'm sure you'll treasure.

A fun and useful journal to record every aspect of your pregnancy experience. There is a good amount of space to respond to the prompts and the page colours are cheerful but gender neutral. The pages are of good quality paper and protected by a sturdy cover with elastic to keep it closed. The only aspect of the journal I have found annoying is that there is some confusion with the weeks. There is a page devopted to each week but I found they didn't correspond to the way people talk about their pregnancy. In this journal week 4 referred to 3 weeks 1 day to 3 weeks 6 days. Most people I have talked to would refer to this period as week 3. One more tiny gripe, at week 1 there is a question about whether you suspect you are pregnant, when this should appear at week 3 or 4. Otherwise a lovely book and I am glad I purchased it.
