me on monday: first trimester memories

Every couple of weeks my app says I have a ‘to-do’… something about writing down a pregnancy memory or taking notes in my pregnancy journal.  Pregnancy journal?  I don’t keep a journal.  And during the first trimester that sounded like entirely too much work for my energy level.  And, really, how many times did I need to write down ‘I puked up my breakfast this morning.’  Who wants to read that journal?

I’m all for memory keeping, but I like to keep it simple.  And I don’t need another notebook requiring storage in our tiny apartment.

So, when I got last week’s reminder to write down a pregnancy memory [stop reminding me already, I don’t have a journal!] I decided maybe I should find a way to document my pregnancy… maybe there’s a reason they keep reminding me to do this.

I set out to design something simple and more my style.  Something that wouldn’t take up much time.  No physical journal.  Nothing fancy & creative like the ones on Pinterest [absolutely beautiful, but who has time for that?]  Something anyone could pick up and complete in a few minutes.  Just once per trimester.

And here it is… my first trimester memories [nevermind that I’m in my third trimester now], in one neat & tidy little page.

I love this! Do you have it as a word document? So I can type the text in like you did.
