It kind of confuses me why this journal was rated so high & is a best seller. This is my 2nd pregnancy. With the first, I used the What to Expect Pregnancy Journal & Organizer, also sold through Walmart, and I loved it. I'm now wishing I just purchased that one again, but being this is a different pregnancy, I wanted 2 different books, to tell them apart. Don't get me wrong, this pregnancy journal is totally adorable and I love the colors and the whole idea. But there's like no pages in this journal. The What to Expect journal has TONS of pages, even slots to put appt cards and things like that. This journal is short, and only has 3 appointment pages for the first and 2nd trimester. I think in the 2nd trimester you usually have more than 3 appts, and you could possibly have more in the first too. Also, this journal's pages go by week. For example, you write everything that happened in week 5. In the What to Expect journal, it goes by day, ie: Week 5, day 1: and you would write what happened that day and how you felt that day. There's also spots for organizing and questions about the birth, and it just goes more in depth in general. The Belly Book is so thin in general. Comparing the two journals, the What to Expect is so much bigger. I was really looking forward to the Belly Book, but now having to squeeze all the info I like to write, I really wish I had just went with another What to Expect journal. My advice: they're both the same price, and you'll be much happier with the What to Expect pregnancy journal! They're both the same price!
