I can still recall the first time that I was pregnant and all the questions I was seeking answers to and the advice that I was looking for. I had no idea what to expect and, aside from my own mom, I didn’t know anyone in my circle who had been pregnant or had a baby.
Now that I am expecting my 4th child and have been pregnant many times over, I’ve come to realize that much of the advice out there is not always that practical. Sure, we want to know what to expect as the months progress, but do we really want to know what fruit-comparable size our growing baby is? Not me. I wanted to know the real-deal, what to expect pieces of advice that I could really use that didn’t sugar-coat things for me.
