finally finished...(updated with pics) pregnancy scrapbook.

It is a very simple 8x8 album, + HPTs, a picture i used to tell DH we were pg, pictures of father's day cards to tell our dads last year, about 3-4 weekly belly pics on each page, a few pages of u/s pics, then the final page is journalling about going to the hospital, etc. since i don't have any pictures of labor Sad

I think I might print out my pregnancy journal and my birth story to put in the last 2 page protectors.

I won't post pics, since there are so many pages, and they are pretty simple, but I was so excited to finally finish the 36/37 week, 38 week, 39 week and labor pages.

ETA: maybe I will take some pics of some of the better, more interesting pages later Wink

Page with tests and how I told DH

(the silver pen is hard to read on the purple paper...On left it says "the day we found out...June 3, 2007" and on the page on the right it says "because one test wasn't enough to convince me that it's true..." and "cheap HPTs taken June 4-15" and "FR taken June 11, 2007")

Next is pictures of the father's day cards I made for our dads (so basically I scrapped pictures of scrap cards, haha)

Week 16-19 belly pics and first u/s pics when we found out it was a boy

Another u/s and more belly pics 27-29 weeks

More belly...

Last 2 pages...39 week pic and journaling stuff about labor and delivery

The journaling says "I went into labor Monday, Feb 11, 2008 at 39 weeks 4 days. We went to the hospital, arriving around 11:30 pm. Nathan Andrew was born on Tuesday Feb. 12, 2008 at 39 weeks 5 days at 1:52 am. He surprised Mommy and Daddy by arriving early. Nathan's story to be continued..." Then below it says "Present at the birth: Mommy and Daddy, Labor Doula - Joanna, L&D nurse - Amy, and Dr. A Sword."
Sorry for the glare on some. I definitely kept these simple...mostly just matted pics with dates/# of weeks...not much in the way of artsy or embellishments.

Oh my! The picture to tell him about your pregnancy made me cry! I love your book and think it is fabulous you are almost entirely done. I think your journaling/birth story would be a fabulous addition.
