I'm past 18 weeks, and doing great! I've never gotten past 18 weeks, so I'm stoked. I can feel her kick and stuff (externally, if I push down on my belly at the right time), and it has to be the most amazing feeling ever. A friend of mine told me that I needed to start keeping track of stuff for a baby book.

So I guess my question is this: how many of you ladies did baby books? And did you do like actual scrapbooks, or write everything down? And for those of you that didn't, do you wish you would have, or does it seem unnecessary to you?

I have baby books for all my kids. I didn't always keep up with every single milestone or firsts but I did the important ones. Lol

Hmm... I had someone buy me a scrapbook but I never filled it out. I was too lazy, simple as that. Plus I'm not a crafty person.

I think if you're into that type of thing, you should do it! It will be cool for your kid to look at when they're older. :)

I did. I loved writing in the baby book. I got mine from Barnes and Noble and it was about 12 dollars.
And off topic, but you're due the same day I was due back in 2011 :)

I started one for my toddler but haven't updated it since like Christmas last year I think:/ And I haven't gotten one for the baby and he is getting close to 5 months. My mom said she started one with me and never kept up after that. My MIL never did it for her kids.

While pregnant I kept a journal and it is dint o go back and look. You will be surprised how quickly dates blur together and you just forget little things. I highly suggest it :)
