Congratulations! You're pregnant! Once the shock begins to wear off, you're probably going to have a lot of questions about the whole process—not to mention a lot to do! But don't worry, this book is designed to help you make the next nine months as stress free as possible. It includes all the information you need to enjoy a healthy, happy pregnancy—from food and nutrition tips to what to expect at your doctor's visits.
Use the worksheets, planning calendars, charts, and checklists in these pages to keep all your essential information in one place. And take the book along with you to the many appointments you will have over the next few months.
Have fun with the calendar, and use it for every aspect of your pregnancy. It can serve as an easy reminder to know exactly what week you are in as well as a way to keep track of doctor's appointments, scheduled tests, and when to expect the results. You can also jot down your thoughts and feelings on particular days that are important to you: the day you first felt the baby kick; the day you stopped feeling queasy; the day your regular clothes stopped fitting; your first shopping trip to the maternity store; the day you somehow “knew” just what the sex of the baby would be.
We've also included journal pages where you can record your experiences throughout each month of your pregnancy. It's a great keepsake to share with your new child one day.
