The day I finished at the doctor after finding out I was pregnant, I went to our local book store to look at what pregnancy books were available. Although there is a lot of good information on the internet, I felt like I needed tried and true source in my hands immediately to start reading up on what I was in for. Throughout my pregnancy, I have read many books about being pregnant, labour, and of course, what happens when the baby comes. All of them have been informative and interesting and helpful and I know so much more having read them. Before experiencing pregnancy myself, I had always listened intently when other mothers talked about their babies and pregnancies and remembered a few key points, but didn't quite know when and how exactly these things were to happen to me. It has been nice to have all these great resources to refer to without having to wait to ask the doctor.
I have read 8 out of 11 books so far- the remaining 3 I plan to get to eventually when needed!
|3. This is the sequel to the book above- also hilarious and informative at the same time.|
|7. This book is written as a novel- Anne Lamott is a famous author who published her diary form her last weeks of pregnancy until her son turned one. It was quite funny. I really enjoyed hearing the real day to day story from a mother.|
