Making a Pregnancy Journal With Baby Ultrasound Pictures

journalingOne of the most exciting things you will experience in your pregnancy is seeing your baby ultrasound pictures. It’s magical to see your child for the first time and watch him as he lies in the womb. In fact, many mothers want to catalogue the experiences of their pregnancy and create a scrapbook in which to place pictures and write things about their feelings. This can be a great way for you to share your experiences and something unique for your child to look at when he or she is older.

Your child will likely ask questions about where they came from eventually and you will be prepared with your scrapbook. One of the best ways to go about this is to take your baby ultrasound pictures and catalogue what was going on when they were taken. How did you feel when you saw your baby for the first time? Were you excited or nervous? You can talk about how the day progressed up to that. Mention things like what you ate and who went with you. You might talk about the person who did the ultrasound and what they had to say about your child.

Another thing you can talk about is your experiences when showing the baby ultrasound pictures to your friends and family. Was there a large group, or was it an intimate experience with one of your close friends. Be sure to tell how you described the pictures to them and if you had any trouble understanding what you saw. Maybe you will want to record their comments on the pictures and how much they will love the child or something special they will do for them when they are older.

You may want to scan your baby ultrasound pictures into your computer so that they can be saved in case the originals are damages. You may also want to edit the pictures by shrinking or enlarging them. You can print out your favorite one for use as the cover of the scrapbook if you want. A good idea is to take the picture and open it with an editor and add text to it. You can add a title for the cover to your scrapbook. Another good idea is to add little thought bubbles like you see in comic strips. These could say little funny comments that the baby might be thinking at the time.

There are many other options available but using these pictures is one of the best ways to catalogue your pregnancy. This is because they will give you step by step intervals in which to add various things or talk about the things that are important in your scrapbook. You may even consider it a running progress and continue it even after they are born. You could put a p of their first outfit if you want. Another fun thing would be to put in their first hair bow, or a few strands of their first hair. The limits of your scrapbook are limited only by your creativity!
