New Pregnancy Checklist: Get the Bible
There are tonnes of books out there about the waiting game, but the undisputed bible of first-time pregnancy is What to Expect When You’re Expecting. It’s practical and reassuring advice although, like the Good Book, some may find it a little alarmist in places. I bought this along with Pregnancy for Dummies which appealed to me mainly because of the title. Even if you’ve witnessed pregnancy, birth and the whole shebang up close, there’s something about going bump yourself that makes you feel quite clueless. For a wittier, hipper and downright ruder take on going belly up, check out The Girlfriend’s Guide to Pregnancy by Vicky Iovine.
