Pam Socolow’s Family Facts Pregnancy Organizer and Planner Review and Giveaway Ends March 22!! **CLOSED**


When I received my pregnancy organizer and planner in the mail I was instantly thrilled. It was so much more than I would have even begun to have thought it could have been. It has a great protective plastic cover that makes it look official which was really great. You open it and it even includes a color matching pen! I started flipping through it immediately to see what all it would include for planning purposes. I was excited to find it had a category for everything I could think of plus more!

Right away you open the book to the calendar section, which is obviously every pregnant woman’s most important section. The most fun part of being pregnant to me is counting down my weeks. Pam Socolow’s Family Facts Pregnancy Organizer and Planner made this super easy by including cute little stickers you can put throughout the calendar section marking what week you are on. The first thing I did was filling the dates and put these stickers up! I immediately planned what I wanted to enter on a day to day basis as well. I included any symptoms I was having and what my ‘to dos’ for the day were. With pregnancy forgetful brain this quickly came in handy for me.

There were more fun stickers to post in the calendar as well. Included were: due date, hospital tour, baby shower, class, appointment, follow up, and a bunch of non-pregnancy related too! By having the non-pregnancy stickers, I was able to feel like this organizer was an all in one for me. I was able to use it to plan my life instead of just my pregnancy!
There was a contact section where I was able to list my healthcare providers, important contacts, and referrals. My favorite part in this section was a few pages for you to list who would be called when labor starts and when the baby arrived. It was fun planning that out because it had not even crossed my mind yet!

Another section included health information. I am able to track all information given to me at prenatal visits including blood work. This was especially helpful because there was a page for questions for my doctor so I was able to not forget anything important I wanted to ask. This also had a part for me to write down my insurance information which is great. Seeing as I intend to keep this planner in my purse it would be great in case of an emergency to have all my information handy like that. One thing I loved was that there was a menu and shopping area that helped me write down items I would be needing often enough to keep stocked so I don’t run out of anything important. There was also a lot of notes open in this section for whatever else you may need.

Now my favorite section of this entire planner is of course the baby section! You flip to it and you see right away the names planning. One page for girls and one for boys. I had no problem starting those ones! You have space available for advice from friends and even who gave it to you so you can thank them later if it was actually helpful. There is a handy checklist you can start and keep track of for items you would need to buy for the baby in different areas including; nursery needs, clothing, changing supplies, bathing supplies, and healthcare needs. There was also a checklist of what I need to buy for myself too! I loved that there is a section for the baby shower also. With my son I had a huge shower but no one wrote everything down! I was so embarrassed to later not be able to thank everyone for what they sent. But this time I am so happy to know I can track it all and not miss anyone. This section includes an area for gift registry and logging any gifts given to you. At the end of the book is a page for information about your maternity leave, hospital tour, and a planning page for your delivery day bag. There are also some plastic laminated areas in the back to save important papers or cards and a zippered plastic bag for special mementos or whatever you could imagine to save.

I truly enjoyed going through this book and sitting down to plan out my pregnancy. I can only imagine how amazing it is going to be since I will be this organized this time! I’m loving the idea of tracking my pregnancy day by day. I intend to print out a belly picture every week to and tape it to the weekly sticker pages. How great will it be to be able to save this planner and hand it over to my child when they are older? I get so excited about being able to share all of this information with my future child. I thank Pam Socolow for making such a great product and know what I will be getting for my friends in the future. I think every pregnant woman should have this organizer. It really will enhance any pregnancy.
