The Perfect Pregnancy Book

January 28th, 2009

When I was pregnant I searched high and low for the perfect book on pregnancy.  I had in my mind what I needed in a pregnancy “handbook” but as hard as I looked I couldn’t find one that had covered everything I wanted and needed to know without boring me to death, or telling me about things that would likely never happen to me that scared me to death.  Total, I ended up buying three different books and another for my husband in hopes that we could cover all of our bases.

I spent hours reading and researching, and by the time I was done I was a bored, paranoid, emotional Mother -To-Be worried that I would forget something important or miss a sign and lose my baby.  It was terrible.  Looking back three pregnancies later I have to laugh.  After all, it is just pregnancy, and while it is very important, it is also something that our bodies do naturally and if we just stick to the basics our babies will be born fine, and we can actually enjoy our pregnancies.

Now, I have had numerous friends and family members who have gone through the same things as I did, and at the end, we sit back and joke about all of the silly things we did and worried about, and wonder why no-one told us the truth about pregnancy.

There are things that we were never told that really end up happening to most women.  Instead we were told the things that we had a one in a million chance of experiencing.  It made me angry, and I wanted to help other women so that they could focus on the important things; the things that really happen, and give them advice to make pregnancy what it should be;  A joyful and fun experience!

I was so excited to have the opportunity to co-write an amazing book called My Bloomin Belly.  This book is funny, packed with vital information, and walks women through pregnancy step by step.  I think that my favorite thing about this book is the real advice it gives.  It tells you what your options are and helps you make decisions that will be best for you, your baby, and your partner.  You get views from Doctors and Midwives.  Real pictures of a baby growing inside of a mother, not just drawings, will amaze you!  You will laugh at true stories of crazy things women have done while pregnant, and probably even relate.

If you buy just one book while you are pregnant, this is the one you must have!  It comes with another book packed with tips on getting financial assistance while pregnant and after, and has many topics that answer questions that we know every mother will have at some point during her pregnancy.

I know that you will love “My Bloomin Belly a Pregnancy Calendar Plus”.  Everyone that has read it tells me how amazing it is, and how they cannot live without it.  I wish you the best pregnancy, and hope that this book will help you enjoy it just a little more.
