Ready for a baby?

Everything you need to know about pregnancy—from weight gain to stretch marks to figuring out how to rely on Christ through the ups and downs of the next nine months.
This comprehensive guide is packed with information that every newly pregnant Christian mama needs—including:
  • help for pregnancy insomnia, morning sickness, weight gain and more
  • advice on how to maintain a godly attitude and outlook during pregnancy—even when you're feeling anything but godly
  • what to expect from doctor check-ups, your encounters with the scale and labor and delivery
  • tips on how to survive food cravings, aversions, and even dreaded pregnancy exercise
  • healthy eating advice for pregnancy that doesn't outright ban ice cream sundaes
  • ideas on how to keep your marriage a priority when you're pregnant, including a guide for Christian dads-to-be and even pregnancy sex tips
This detailed guide takes you through each trimester with helpful tips, humorous accounts, and supportive spiritual advice--all with a girlfriend-to-girlfriend approach that will help moms feel comfortable as they navigate this life-changing time.

When I first ordered this book, my parents both thought I was crazy. Here I am, ordering these parenting magazines and getting "how to raise babies" books, when I'm not even married or engaged yet. In fact, I'm still happily single. But I told them I might need this information in the future, and it's never too early to read up about being pregnant because even though that might not happen soon, I can certainly help friends who have already married and are about to have children.

So what I'm trying to say is that even though it's weird to pick up this book when you're not expecting, it's better to be way early than late.
