This journal does a good job of prompting you to write about things you might not have thought to discuss. Somewhat of a "fill in the blank" process, the journal has incomplete sentences that you fill in. There have been several, such as, "Baby, what I really want you to know about me is _______________" that I probably wouldn't have ever thought to include in my baby journal, and was glad to write about. Some other examples of this are:
"My parents are acting ______ and it makes me feel ______"
"The baby can hear now. What he/she probably hears most is _____."
"Baby, someone gave me this advice about you and I don't want to forget it: ______".
However, there are only 9 pages for photos, and next to no room to record what's happening each week during my pregnancy, as the entire page each week is taken up by these fill-in-the-blank questions. Some of the prompts don't pertain to me (such as ones that talked a lot about morning sickness, which wasn't a major part of my pregnancy), and others made me VERY uncomfortable, such as these examples:
"My boobs are (check what applies):
_ A teenage boy's dream
_ A bit in the way
_ Totally painful and huge
_ Lovely. Really lovely.
_ Other: ___________"
Another that made both me and my husband squirm and wonder what the author was thinking:
"Intimacy is ___________ and involves _______________________ (goes on for three lines)."
Since most of the prompts in this book are slated toward the baby one day reading it (they say things like "Baby, what I really want you to know is ____"), I can't imagine why I'd want to tell my baby about intimacy with my husband and then describe it! Ick.
I'm glad to explore my feelings about the pregnancy through the insightful prompts in the book, but I would not use it for a future pregnancy nor recommend it to others. I'm also using The Belly Book: A Nine-Month Journal for You and Your Growing Belly (Potter Style) right now, which allows for photos each week and again for ultrasounds, and also has lots of room to write, unfettered, most weeks. In addition, it does ask some questions about every 4-6 weeks, so there is some "fill-in-the-blank" but it's much more balanced that in From Pea to Pumpkin. After using both for 26 weeks, I like The Belly Book much better for these reasons and also because it is big enough to store mementos and has space each trimester for notes on prenatal visits. I'd highly recommend that book unless you feel you'd prefer the guidance of the fill-in-the-blanks each week and don't want room for photos.
