Introducing the totally revised and updated WHAT TO EXPECT PREGNANCY JOURNAL & ORGANIZER-- with 715,000 copies in print, it's the perfect gift and popular companion to "What to Expect When You're Expecting. Lightweight and sized to fit into a tote or briefcase, this handy planner is an expectant mom's best friend from conception through labor and delivery. For the new edition, the text has been brought completely up to date in accordance with the information in the recently revised third edition of "What to Expect When You're Expecting. Featuring prompted pages, checklists, and a weekly write-in pregnancy and labor journal, this is the best way for mothers-to-be to keep track of important dates, questions to ask the doctor, medications, milestones, childbirth class notes, shopping lists, phone numbers, and everything else that comes with the nine months of pregnancy. The journal/organizer's compact design ensures it can go everywhere mom goes. After baby's arrival, it becomes an instant keepsake.
Introducing the newest addition to the What to Expect family: an indispensable "dateless" 42-week pregnancy planner and appointment-keeper for the wall that starts the day a woman discovers she's a mother-to-be and continues through delivery. Created by the authors of America's pregnancy bible with over ten million copies in print, this is the perfect place to record personal pregnancy dates and notes while keeping track of appointments, questions for the doctor, fetal movements, shopping lists, weight gain, and anything else. A 10" x 10" wire-o-bound grid, the conveniently sized planner will hang in the office, kitchen, bedroom, or wherever it's needed. It covers 42 weeks (the usual 40-week gestation period, plus two extra weeks in case baby arrives late), displaying two weeks on each page. Weeks 1 to 22 are on the front pages. Then flip the entire calendar for weeks 23 to 42 on the back. Not only are the dates left to be filled in, but the days are, too. So if Day One for a woman is a Wednesday, that becomes the lead-off day on the grid. The planner is illustrated throughout with full-color watercolors by Judith Cheng and packaged in a decorative gift box, The What to Expect Pregnancy Planner is a must-have for every expecting woman. Reassuring tips and advice appear on every page.
EATING WELL WHEN YOU'RE EXPECTING provides mums-to-be with a realistic approach to navigating healthily and deliciously through the nine months of pregnancy - at home, in the office, at Christmas, in restaurants. Thorough chapters are devoted to nutrition, weight gain, food safety, the postpartum diet, and how to eat when trying to conceive again. And the book comes with 150 contemporary, tasty, and healthy recipes that feed mum and baby well, take little time to prepare, and are gentle on queasy tummies. At the heart of the book are hundreds of pressing questions every mother-to-be has: Is it true I shouldn't eat any food cooked with alcohol? Will the caffeine in coffee cross into my baby's bloodstream? I'm entering my second trimester, and I'm losing weight, not gaining - help! Is all sushi off limits? How do I get enough calcium if I'm lactose intolerant? I keep dreaming about a hot fudge sundae - can I indulge? (The answer is yes!)
