What To Expect When You’re Expecting 3rd Ed.


I’m currently reading What to Expect When You’re Expecting. It was a Christmas gift from Daddy’s mom. She read this same book when she was pregnant with him. Since then it has become much thicker and 1.2 million copies have been sold. I started reading at Chapter 9: 5 months since that’s how far along I am. I do flip back if there is a topic I’m interested in. I don’t advise any woman going through her first pregnancy to take the book to heart. As a first time mom I want the best for my baby but at the same time I realize that I can’t be 100% perfect. You definitely don’t have to follow all of the advice given in this book but it’s a good resource for newbies. It’s funny because this book explained some old wives’ tales that I have heard. #1. Don’t reach up for high things because the umbilical cord can wrap around the baby’s neck. #2. Don’t lay on your back because your baby will be laying on your spine, which is like lying on a pile of rocks. Guess who said these things? The same woman that bought me the book! Lol! Either she missed out on these explanations in the book or they were added in the 2nd and 3rd editions. Of course it’s not the best to lay on your back because it can lead to backaches, hemorrhoids, can interfere with digestion, breathing, circulations and other things, especially during months 4 and up. The pile of rocks is just an exaggeration, I guess to keep you from doing it, like most exaggerated wives’ tales. Anyway, when in doubt always be sure to ask your doctor, he/she knows best. Pick up the book, it’s fun to read. Just don’t panic if you can’t follow all of the suggestions given inside.

  1. The Wife says:

    I’m impressed that you have already figured out how to read these kind of books selectively. It wasn’t until my first son was a year old that I finally learned to relax and stop feeling guilty about not doing every little thing that every book said I should be doing. Books and advice are great, but should be used as resources–not absolute law.

    I read this book with my wee ones, but my favorite pregnancy book was “Your Pregnancy Week By Week” I recommend it to everyone, if only for the cool pencil drawings of the developing fetus.
