As your bump continues to grow, you’ll most definitely like to keep track of its progress. If that is the case, you need to know how to go about tracking the changes in your body. Here are some tips to consider.
Go Old School
Snag a chalkboard from a yard sale or thrift store for decorating each week. You can make a list of how you and your baby are progressing, for instance, how you are feeling, the size of the baby and how far along you are into the pregnancy. You can have someone take a photo of you with your tummy on display next to the board. This will also help you to track your baby’s growth once he is born.
Belly Growth Chart
If you already have a fancy growth chart to show your kids their height (not the old school door frames), you should get one for your bump too. The coolest thing about this is that you can watch your belly transform its shape over weeks. And if your kids are big enough, you can let them join in on the fun.
Forgetting during pregnancy is like a habit for a pregnancy brain and it isn’t funny especially if you cannot keep a record of ordinary events. The pregnancy is not a joke, but if you are able to take down those notes (even when it’s in the note sections of your smartphone), then you’ll be in a position to keep track of the advancements taking place.
Use an App
There are a number of applications which allow you to learn about the natural things happening for you as well as discover the rhythms of your body. With an excellent application, you can successfully keep track of the duration, frequency, and your contraction patterns. You can also watch these contractions in real-time to ascertain how frequency or patterns change with time as your body prepares itself for the big day. You can achieve peace of mind with this pregnancy tracker when it comes to tracking your pregnancy.
Pick One Outfit
A pregnancy journal is essential if posts and hashtags do not matter to you. If you have never done one before, you can check Etsy for some amazing journal ideas. You may go for a personalized design, one that the baby will read when they finally get to grow up.
Choose one Outfit
It’s a great commitment, but imagine the photo collage you’ll make on the social media. Choose a dress which you’ll put on every month or week. With this outfit, you’ll be in a position to see how much your body has transformed throughout your pregnancy period.
All Hands In
Looking for an exceptional spin on your monthly photos but are looking for an easier way to go about it? Well, you can consider the all-hands-in approach and see how your pregnancy is developing. This approach is easy and straightforward.
Knowing how to track your pregnancy is an excellent way of determining the health and status of your baby. With the above pointers, you’ll be in a position to track your pregnancy effectively and know how well you are progressing toward the D-day.
