REFLECTIVE JOURNAL ENTRY – Prenatal Development
If possible, interview your mother and/or father (if this is not possible, try an aunt, or uncle, or grandparent) about your own prenatal development. Use the following questions to get started.
Was this a planned pregnancy?
Was this your first baby?
How did you find out you were pregnant?
How did you feel?
Were you working?
When did you see a doctor?
Did you take vitamins?
When did you start feeling the baby?
When did you begin wearing maternity clothes?
What changes did your body go through?
What are some of the strongest memories you have of this pregnancy?
Did you have any prenatal tests?
How did your lifestyle change?
Did you smoke? Drink alcohol? Drink coffee or tea? Take any drugs?
Did you know the sex of the baby before the birth? Did you have a preference for a boy or a girl? How did you feel when you found out the sex of your baby?
When did you decide on a name for the baby?
Did you attend any special classes or workshops about childbirth, nursing, etc.?
Did you know of any preexisting conditions?
Where were you living?
Were there any features/characteristics you were hoping the baby would have? Were there any you were hoping the baby would not have?
How much of your spouse’s medical history did you know? In retrospect, how important would that have been?
What role/expectations did you have for this child?
What influenced your decision to have a child at this time?
Did you have any trouble conceiving? Did you expect to have any trouble getting pregnant?
Now, reflect on what you learned and answer the following question;
1. How do you think your own pregnancy (or your wife’s) will be (was) the same or different than your mother’s?
