Pen or Pencil

Yesterday I went to our storage unit to find a pregnancy journal my friend had given me when we found out we were pregnant 2 years ago.  This pregnancy was a shock because we got pregnant on our own.  Unfortunately, it ended in an early miscarriage.  For two weeks I knew I was pregnant, but I only filled out 4 questions in the pregnancy journal, in pencil.  I think I was that scared something would happen, that I didn't want to start too much.

Now what should I do?  Should I erase those 4 answers about how we found out and felt during that short miracle of a pregnancy?  Should I leave them and write my new answers next to those memories?  Should I just wait and try to remember everything later when things are farther along?  Should I use pen or pencil this time?


  1. You should write beside it. In pen! Because you deserve to enjoy every ounce of good with this pregnancy. If something bad happens then you deal with it, but until then revel in the good!
    And keeping the past notes is nice. It shows who you once were, and how greatly wanted this miracle is! I wish you a happy and healthy pregnancy!

    1. Thank you ks! I had a couple other votes for pen too. So, I'll write it in ink.

  2. What you are sharing is so beautiful and honest! I am enjoying reading about your journey and know that I am praying for you. Blessings to you!- Carla
