When women find out that they are pregnant they become ecstatic and they wish to remember every part of their pregnancies. Being pregnant is a special time for a woman and feelings of nurturing and love for an unborn child grow throughout the entire pregnancy. Women can watch their bellies grow and they view sonograms that show their small infants inside of the womb. After a few months mothers will feel their babies kick and they will prepare for the birth of their child.
Because of the special nature of pregnancy, many women wish to journal and record the special moments so they can be looked at later. One of the best ways to document a pregnancy is to video tape special moments. A small video recorder can be used and these items are quite inexpensive. Digital recordings can be made by spouses and they can be downloaded on to computers. Moments that include the growth of the stomach, the decoration of nurseries, and the moment that the baby’s sex is found out should all be recorded. Special family moments and baby showers are great to have on film as well.
Some mothers like to record maternity moments by writing journal entries as well. The anticipation of the birth of the child and the daily feelings and emotions that come with pregnancy can be written down. These moments will be looked at fondly by the new mother years after a child is born and she will be brought back instantly to the time that she was pregnant when she reads journal entires. Bound journals that are made with high-quality paper are best used, because these books can be kept in good condition for years.
Simple photographs during a pregnancy are great mementos for mothers. Photographs can be taken by spouses all throughout pregnancies and this will show the activities that the mother involved herself in while pregnant. The growth of the belly can be seen easily in photographs, and mothers can look back with astonishment when they see how large they grew.
