What to Expect When You Are Expecting


With my first pregnancy I was given the book "What to Expect When You are Expecting". I can't remember who gave it to me, but I do remember reading thru every chapter and being really excited over reading about my baby's development and what to expect that week of pregnancy. It sat on my nightstand, and then later on when we got the nursery together it sat on the stand by the rocking chair so I could have some reading time. I'd go into the nursery, sit in the rocking chair and dream about what it would be like to hold that baby for the first time and parooze thru that book. I enjoyed the week by week tracking to see just what was going on with baby and what to expect from my body and ever expanding belly. It was really a special time.

Then someone gave me the "What to Expect the First Year" book, which I used like a bible to address everything from colic, to just gas, to sleeping patterns, schedules, to bathing and establishing good eating habits, or addressing nursing issues....the book really does help address anything a mother would have questions on and tells you what to expect from month to month the first year of your baby's life. It has really been a great resource for me, especially since I don't have too many people to phone up and ask. For example my grandmother's explanation to a fussy colicky baby was to add a teaspoon of whiskey to baby's bottle. Yeah......hmmmm not really good advise there. ;)

So anyway, I have teamed up with What to Expect who is offering one of my readers a book. I promise you will love these books as much as I have, and since we just brought baby number 2 home from the hospital just over a week ago, I find myself reading thru the "What to Expect The First Year" again. Its amazing how much you forget when you have to do it all over again. So one of my readers will get to choose the book they would like from the What To Expect Book Series, From What to Expect "BEFORE" you are expecting to "What to Expect: The Toddler Years"

I agree with you I absolutely love the What to Expect books.  I am currently pregnant with our second child and my 4 year old daughter has has a lot of questions about what is going on with my body.  Most recently she asked how the baby will come out.  So I was definitely out of my comfort zone discussing the subject and conflicted on how to tell her.  But I definitely knew that I wanted her to know the truth.  I came across the book What to Expect When Mommys Having a Baby http://www.amazon.com/What-Expect-When-Mommys-Having/dp/0694013218/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1323566617&sr=1-1
 
The book addressed all her questions in a way that she could understand very well and I just love th fact that it is very straight forward and well illustrated.  The book made our talk a lot easier than I thought it would be!  Just wanted to share because I had never heard of the What to Expect Kids series derived from those books.  The next one in the What to Expect When the New Baby Comes Home (What to
Expect Kids)  and I think we will be getting that one as well!
