Did you know there is a movie coming out on May 18th based on the #1 bestselling pregnancy book, What to Expect When You're Expecting? The creators say it's "a look at love through the eyes of five interconnected couples experiencing the thrills and surprises of having a baby, and ultimately coming to understand the universal truth that no matter what you plan for, life doesn't always deliver what's expected." It looks like it could be pretty funny!
I used What to Expect When You're Expecting as a reference book. I did not read it front to back, but I did open it up when I found myself with a question. The "What You Can Expect at This Month's Checkup" sections were always helpful to me. It was my way of being prepared for my appointments. I also liked using it to follow the development of the baby from month to month. I used the iPhone app as well but sometimes I wanted to read it in black and white!
Things that caught me by surprise while expecting:
2. People's idea of providing helpful information.
3. The Breastfeeding drama.
4. My own instinct.
5. Swelling AFTER having the baby.
*When reading or referencing the book What to Expect When You're Expecting, be sure you are using an updated edition. They do change with the times!
