    Babies are the size of: A peapod (two peas in a pod) Cravings: Apple Juice Symptoms: Reflux, indigestion, constipation. Food aversions to almost everything!

    15 Weeks Second Pregnancy – Guilt, Body Hate, Gender Surprise

    This incredible Mother of one generously shares her pregnancy journal entries for week 15 of her pregnancy, and I know her openness and honesty is going to be really valuable for others who aren’t loving their pregnancy journeys so far and/or are struggling with body issues. She says: I always feel so guilty because both pregnancies have been symptom free, I’ve been able to continue to work and exercise normally but I also really struggle mentally. As I HATE my body, I HATE the thought of having to ‘recover’ and ‘get my body back’ whatever that means. But it also doesn’t mean I don’t love the babies I’ve carried. It’s…

    My Pregnancy Diary: 6 Weeks Pregnant

    I am always overjoyed to share in your news and excitement of pregnancy! Many of my followers and previous little white book customers get in touch when they find out their amazing news, telling me they’re going to buy a pregnancy journal and also asking how I felt during early pregnancy.

I’ve copied the format of the journal for these questions, so if you…
