What to Expect When You're Expecting, when I was pregnant with my first child. I got the book as a gift and I have to say it is one of the best gifts anyone can give to a pregnant woman.
As a first time mom, I was going through all kinds of emotions, talk about being hormonal! I was excited, scared, curious, happy, elated, and terrified; all in a matter of minutes. Most of all, I didn't know what to expect(see what I did there?). And this is where the book comes in. It tells you that it's ok to feel all of those things. Not only is it ok, but it's completely normal.
I really loved checking the book to see what my baby looked like in the womb and following the growth patterns monthly. And anytime I had a question about pregnancy or what I was feeling, I consulted the book and usually got my answer.
This book empowers the pregnant woman by providing her with information. For example, when you're pregnant, whether it's with your first, second, or third child, you are most likely feeling overwhelmed. Knowing what you should ask your doctor during routinge appointments takes away some anxiety and lets you feel prepared. Having this go to resource that helps you in all aspects of your pregnancy is really priceless.
It was great being able to know what babies usually do at different months and to see if my own baby was doing those things. I have heard critics say that this creates anxiety for parents, especially if their children are not growing or performing according to the book. But that was never my case, because I looked at it as a guideline. And if my child didn't quite do what the book said, I may have paid a little more attention. That's all.
Some of the things you can expect in this new book will be familiar if you've read the other books. For example, there is plenty of information on your child's milestones, tips on daily care and how to spot problems.
Additionally, there is information about potty training, personal grooming (teeth brushing, bathing, hair washing, etc), and behavioral issues that start during this second year and how to handle them!! Love it.
Now here's the fun part. I am excited to offer 2 Adventures of a Homeschohool Mom readers a collection of the What to Expect Book Series (that’s right 6 books in all, so 2 winners will receive 3 books each).
