Here is my first re-post from shortly after my daughter was born. Enjoy!
I don’t live near my family (we live about 5 – 6 hours from where we grew up) and wanted them to feel like they were part of my pregnancy. So I signed up for the BabyCenter emails that tell you about fetal development each week. Then I forwarded that email to my family and friends and gave them an update on how I was doing. Looking back now, I am so happy I did that because I now have a nice description of how each week went during my pregnancy.
I would also recommend taking a picture of your soon-to-be-expanding profile every month. I did this as well, and it is fun to look back and see how my shape changed. It also made me feel a bit better as my body started to go back to “normal,” and remembering how big my tummy was.
Finally, there’s a fantastic blog that I thoroughly enjoyed that I want to share. www.alphamom.com provides hilarious insights into what it’s like to be pregnant. It reminded me to stay on the lighter side of things.
