Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
Some of you have mentioned that you got your husbands books on pregnancy so that they know what's going on with you and baby.
What do you recommend?
Our BFFs just gave us "What to expect when your wife's expanding" It's a much, much smaller read than "What to expect when your expecting" and according to him, a rather light and funny but very informative read.
DH just finished "The expectant Dad". He wasn't a fan but only because it covered the very basics of conception, the week by week, what mom is feeling week by week, etc. I had shoved that stuff down his throat long ago so it was stuff he already knew. Good for dads who are starting at square one, though.
And finally, Jenny McCarthy's "Belly Laughs". I made DH read that right before we started TTC. I figured a really funny book, written by a former Playmate... how wrong could I go. Plus, she is very graphic on what happens to our bodies and I was like, "Buddy, you need to know this before we get started."
PP is probably right - The Expectant Father. Not The Expectant Dad.
MrsHK:DH recommends The Expectant Father
we have that one and this one
Both are pretty good. DH is enjoying reading them. I was hoping they would garner more sympathy for me.
Chrissy-n-Tim:I got my husband My Boys Can Swim. It's cute, thin and has humor in it.
This is the one I got my husband too.
