I decided that at 8 weeks I would start tracking things using the ever popular pregnancy surveys, more for my own notes than anything. I'm getting a scrapbook together that I'm going the start with 8 weeks and go all the way through labor. I realistically know that I'm not going to work on it each week, so hopefully these surveys will help jog my memory for journaling.
