Confession: I believe the greatest joy in life is becoming a mother. Therefore, you can understand the excitement when a bestie calls to share that she is expecting her first child. It is hard to put into words the joy and fear that surround motherhood. In nine months you are expected to produce a child and know what to do with it. Loving a child is the easy part–making sure your newborn baby boy doesn’t pee in your face is the challenge. Yes, it will happen.
I’ve always been one for preparation. My nine month journey to motherhood included pretty much every maternity book and magazine under the sun. Most, I could live with out. However, there are a select few that I have turned to time and time again for information. Without further ado,
1. Baby Bargains–This book is an absolute must have for mothers. I took this book with me to register and still reference it when researching new items to purchase for my arm candies.
2. What to Expect When you are Expecting– This book is like the pregnancy bible and even when you think you know everything, I guarantee you will still pull this book off the shelf to look up some random pregnancy question.
3. Bump It Up– Pregnancy is not an excuse to be a fashion “not”. Be prepared with these amazing fashion tips for expecting mothers.
