20+ Spread Ideas For A Pregnancy Bullet Journal

Posted by Design Team on

Hey-lo Marsha here from DoYouSalut! Today we're creating a pregnancy/baby journal for one of my dearest friends. I'm always amazed by people who are able to bring life into this world. Having a journal to mark this journey can be a great gift to give to a sister/best friend/partner, etc.

Here are the sections I added to my friend's journal: 

Cover page:

First section is the cover page. This can be a bit tricky because some parents want to wait until the baby is born before giving them a name. Some parents just can't pick a name until they absolutely have to.  For the cover page spread you can have "Welcome" in nice lettering and then leave a space for the baby's name to be added later. You can also have the first initial of the last name. For example for Baby J.

About Mom/Dad

all about mum

This page is there so she can write interesting things about herself and her partner. I left it blank so they can write anything they want (birthday, favorite color, etc).

Baby Names & Reactions

This section is for potential names for the baby and gender reveal. This section can be a bit tricky because not everyone is binary and some people might want to raise their children with this mindset. Be sure to ask your friend if this is something they would want.

Reactions are a great thing to add. Was the baby a surprise or planned? Did family and friends suspect that a baby is on the way.  



Trimesters:

first trimester

I added a section for each trimester to write down the following: how I'm feeling, Best Parts, Worst Parts, Cravings, and appointments.  Sometimes we forget these little details and they might not seem important now but might be in the future.

Ultrasounds 

A place to baby's first pictures!

Birth Plan & Birth Story 

Do you know your birth story?  This is a great spread to share the story.

Months 

Each month brings new adventures for the family and baby. Having space for each months' adventures is a great way to keep memories.

Instead of leaving the page blank you can also add milestones for example first tooth, reaction to eating solids, etc. 

two months

Hip hip hooray! Baby is one year old.

Miscellaneous Section Ideas 

Here's a list of other sections you can add to the journal:

Family tree & history

Story behind why given name was chosen

How parents met 

Hopes and dreams for baby 

Advice from family and friends 

Letters written by parents to baby for the future

You can add to this journal every year and then give it to the "baby" when they're all grown up. 


Note: if you don't have great drawing skills you can always use Canva's clip art and print the images on sticker paper. You can use stickers, stencils,etc. I'm sure the person who receives the journal will be happy for such a thoughtful gift. 


Here is a free printable of a baby shower card that can be a companion to the journal if you are giving it as a gift.
