Journaling has so many wonderful benefits.
It helps you to stay organized, relieve stress, self reflection, and you can look back at your feelings and experiences.
While you are pregnant so many things are changing and it’s fun to write down those things so you can remember them later.
You could also give this journal to your child so they can read about your experiences while they were growing inside of you.
It may help you feel closer to your growing baby when you write about them.
Your body is doing such an incredible thing and you should embrace and remember that. Journaling your thoughts will help you with this.
Enjoy these prompts and let the creativity juices flow!
