    Every pregnant woman has heard of the infamous “What To Expect When You’re Expecting” books, right?

    Well, to be completely honest with you, I have never actually read any of those books, even though I’ve been pregnant three times…

    But I can tell you one thing for sure. And that’s that if I were to write my own book on pregnancy, it read a little more like something that would tell you what to really expect when you’re expecting…

    The only thing I’d add to the list is the heartburn!! Before I got pregnant, I never had heartburn, but around seven or eight months it wouldn’t quit!!

    Good ones. I was super lucky that I only got sick 1 time thus far in my pregnancy (month 2 at a bar-projectile vomiting-oh the embarrassment). I have to say I HATE with a passion the WTE books. I think they are written like a dictionary, not anything most pregnant women want to even read. It is beyond boring. At least give me the knowledge in a fun to read format. Any other book suggestions, because I haven’t gotten past page 2 on either of those.

    I loved the WTE books while expecting my first child. I had no idea what to expect, what questions to ask my doctor, or anything.
