The best pregnancy cards worth baring your bump for


The (give or take) 40 weeks that you are pregnant are memorable to say the least. Regardless of whether this is your first pregnancy or your last, you will most likely want to track your little one’s progress throughout your the journey.

One of the fun ways to highlight your growing baby bump and keep track of those beautiful moments during the next nine months is by taking regular snaps along the way.

Here are our favourite pregnancy milestone cards to record the moments.

Hip Ink Hooray’s ($41) pregnancy cards are another one of our favourites on the milestone market. With a woodland critter theme, the colourful palate of cards lets you fill in the blanks with dates that each milestone (or monthly photo) took place.

Grape expectations

Feast your eyes on these fruit-tastic cards which allow you to create your own pregnancy platter of fruit and veg. Your baby’s growth is often compared to the various fruit and veggies you find at the market. Audrey N Me ($26.95) takes this idea one step further with a set of 25 cards that give you a visual of the size of your growing infant.

Counting down with cravings

Not a fan of comparing your belly to broccoli? How about something sweeter instead? SimonSek ($17) has designed a delicious set of 14 cards that satisfy your sweet (and savoury) tooth during pregnancy. Rather than marking each month with fruit, these cards mark each month with the more relatable cravings mums have during pregnancy – you know, the cravings for chips, ice cream, hamburgers, tacos and other fast food fixes.

IVF inspiration

IVF pregnancy milestone cards

Every mother’s journey towards pregnancy and parenthood is different. However, if you are taking the IVF route, then there are a few milestones that most conventional pregnancy milestone cards forget to include, such as your first day of stims, your puregon jab and embryo transfer day.

These unique cards from Snow Bird Prints ($55) celebrate these incredible milestones as well as your pregnancy journey.

Pregnancy imperfections

Pregnancy isn’t always sunshine and rainbows. Sometimes pregnancy sucks. While most milestone cards forget to mention these less-than-perfect moments, these inappropriate milestone cards don’t hold back. Baby Carriers Australia ($29.95) are perfect for pregnant mums with a sense of humour (and a weak bladder).

Sticky momentos

Pregnancy belly stickers are another great way to document your pregnancy (without having to hold up a card for every photo). We love Pearhead’s 16 sticker collection which are not only easy to peel and stick on clothing, but also feature adorable fruit and veggie illustrations.

You can pick up your set from Storknest for $9.95

Once bub arrives you’ll need a set of baby milestone cards that tell it how it is for the next step in your photographing journey. And, while you’re browsing, why not check out these maternity products that you didn’t know you needed.

Love your bump.
