Smart Product:, w/giveaway

We thought we would always remember the special moments of pregnancy.  We’ve seen beautiful hardcover journals and more to document the daily happenings of our pregnancy.  We swore we would take out the book, find a pen and write (in our best handwriting of course) our pregnancy happenings. I’ve tried to, but it never happens.

We’ve called the crew, from mom to mother in law and everyone in between at the sense of the 1st kick or after each sonogram.  Time spent on the phone is ridiculous at times, especially with a toddler yanking your leg or dinner burning on the stove.

Between the dozens of doctor’s appointments, errands to run, a job to keep and possibly chasing after one or more little munchkins, your down time is usually spent here, online catching up on Facebook, checking in on your registry or just Googling some random thing.

Mama Memoirs ( has recognized your pregnant needs by creating an easy to use pregnancy journal that can be instantly shared with your loved ones.  I was recently invited to it try out.  As a recent pregnant Smart Mama, I quickly recognized that this was certainly a tool for Smart Pregnant Mamas.  Its clean design, great journaling templates to organize your thoughts, gather the stats like the size of your belly to the date of the 1st kicks, notification capabilities allow you to share the journal with loved ones, and a beautiful hardcover book put together at the end of you pregnancy with all your journal entries, sets it apart from other pregnant journal mediums.

With Mama Memoirs, gone are the days of finding the pen, the book or making a million phone calls to update on the last doctor appointment.  Also, gone are the days of boring your husband with one more, “I can’t believe these sandals don’t fit because my cankles are out of control!”  Now, with you can record your day’s happenings, your measurements, photos and more at the same spot you read this and stalk former enemies on Facebook.
