Product Description

Review

'Books that changed My Life' by Mariella Frostrup. "This was my best friend during my pregnancy. It described all the physical and emotional changes I went through as though the authors were mind-readers. Although there are hundreds of pregnancy books, none had quite the same voice of reason."' Reader's Digest November issue

From the Back Cover

Expecting to Expect? Plan Ahead.

Everything you need to know before you’re expecting to help you prepare for the healthiest possible pregnancy and the healthiest possible baby. Filled with practical tips, empathetic advice, and savvy strategies all designed to help you get that baby of your dreams on board faster. How to get your bodies into tip-top baby-making shape. Which foods feed fertility. Which lifestyle habits to quit and which to cultivate. How to have sex for conception success (from timing to positions to logistics). And when to seek fertility help. There’s even a fertility planner to help you keep track of your conception adventure.

Answers to all your baby-making questions:
  • How can I tell when I’m ovulating if my cycles aren’t regular?
  • Should we be having sex everyday? Every other day? Three times a day?
  • I’ve heard certain sex positions can help you conceive—true?
  • I’m overweight—does that affect my chances of getting pregnant?
  • Can certain foods help you get pregnant?
  • I’m 37. Does that mean I’ll have a harder time getting pregnant?
  • How long should we keep trying to conceive before we get some help?

This was the first of many pregnancy books i have read before even expecting! I wanted to get as much info as I could about "what to expect" before Trying to conceive. I thought it was just ok, I learned a few things about nutrition and ovulation predicting, but most information was common sense or general knowledge. Although it was easy to read, it lacked depth and medical knowledge, leaving it somewhat superficial. I also thought that the writing was immature and annoying at times. I can enjoy humor, but i wanted well sound medical information, not a Cosmo-like version of what to expect. After reading many other books, I would not recommend this one because there are too many books out there that provide much more information than this one. Unless you have the funds to go through tons of book and have spare time, I wouldn't recommend this book. The Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy would be a much more well rounded choice, that informs you medically without assuming you lack th intelligence to comprehend pregnancy.

This book was very helpful in that it taught me about prepping my body to conceive and carry a baby/babies. I became motivated to check up on my weight and eating habits. It also helped me to understand my cycle and recognize when I'd be ovulating.

Parts 1 and 2- "Getting ready to make a baby" and "Making a baby"- were most helpful to me; and although I did not require the
last section, "Bumps on the road to baby", I'm sure many women (and men) will benefit from this section.

Overall, it's an informative and helpful book that I would recommend to anyone who is dedicated and committed to preparing themselves for a healthy and timely pregnancy.

Awesome book for women who are planning on having a family. Good Prenatal care is a must and for those that are planning a family especially first timers.
