Printable Pregnancy Planner/Organizer?

Asked by albert_e (529 points ) October 2nd, 2010

Do you know of any printable Pregnancy Planner/Organizer?

I am usually keen on customizing my daily planners (for regular work)—

So I am looking for some ideas on creating a Pregnancy Planner where the expectant parents can keep a log of all relevant facts and observations through the weeks, log daily diet info, track weight and any other important measures, track doctor appointments, summary of their suggestions, medications and courses, etc., and even to jot down any random thoughts and feelings. A few pages could be added to list the names of the baby being considered.

If you can point me to a list of things that need o be tracked and logged through the course of pregnancy—I can pick up some of those ideas and create my printable planner.

Thanks!

The first thing to come to mind is dates. Dates of doctor appointments, child birth classes, sonograms, due date, etc. So, I’d base it on/around a calendar. Maybe with lined pages in between each month for notes.

Appointments, estimated due date, name possibilities, ultrasound pictures, a birth plan, and medications the mom needs to take (such as her prenatal vitamin and possibly others) would all be useful. You could also include a list of things that they may need to get and have ready before the baby comes. I think it would be interesting to have a calendar that shows how my baby was growing each week as well. You could also include a page for the parents to write down information about local pediatricians so they can compare them before choosing one for their baby. I would also include the recommended vaccination schedule (for the child) so that the parents can research them beforehand and be prepared when the time comes.
