Best Online Pregnancy Information Sources

By Katie |

The day after we found out about the baby, we ran out and bought a baby book. Since that time I have opened it exactly once, got overwhelmed and hid it under a pile of stuff in my room. It was just too much all at once. I could only prepare for the things that would be happening that week, not for everything to come in the next 9 months and subsequent 18 years.

Which is why I turned to the internet. I am so grateful to be pregnant now because of all the amazing resources that the internet has to offer. There are thousands of sites with information about pregnancy. Some are funny, some are serious, some are fact filled, others are more collections of personal experiences. Basically, whatever you’re looking for, it’s right here on the internet. And chances are, I’ve found and read it, because I have a bit of an obsession.

You’ve already found your way to Being Pregnant, which would obviously be my #1 suggestion, and while you’re here you should check out the week-by-week pregnancy guide and subscribe to the weekly emails. But in the interest of giving you lots of options, these are the other 8 best online pregnancy information sources I’ve encountered so far.

Best Sources for Pregnancy Information Online

Alpha Mom Zero to Forty

I have to tell you, this one is my absolute favorite because it's a nice mix of information, humor and personal experiences. And the comments are usually pretty useful too, which I think we can all agree is not always the case. It's basically a week by week pregnancy calendar/information guide, written by Amy Storch of Amalah, during her second pregnancy. If you're looking for something written from the perspective of a pregnant mother and with a little more levity than some of the others, this is a great place to look.
