Synopses & Reviews
The Pregnancy Countdown Book
starts on Day 280 and counts down all the major milestones—with one page of helpful information for each day of pregnancy. Here are tips from doctors and midwives, amusing anecdotes from new moms, and occasional icky-but-important medical information (if you’re familiar with lochia, you know what we mean).
Every page offers interesting revelations. On Day 231, your baby will be the size of a blueberry—but by Day 168, she’ll be the size of a large avocado. By Day 124, you’ll need to stop sleeping on your back; by Day 90, air travel becomes a dicey proposition. And if you haven’t planned the nursery by Day 45, you’re playing with fire.
The perfect gift for expecting moms, The Pregnancy Countdown Book will help women navigate the most bewildering but exciting forty weeks of their lives.
