Top 50 Pregnancy Blogs

Pregnancy can be quite a trip. From the first fluttering in your belly to the endless parade of minor (and major) discomforts, your mind is opened to a whole new world of bodily functions. As your body changes, your brain tries to catch up. Is this normal? What will birth be like? What's a "boppy pillow"? And do I need one? Read More ↓

Perhaps more than at any other time in history, today's expecting couples have access to unlimited information about what they're going though. But one time-honored way to process what's happening right now is to go right to the source: other mothers. Or, in this case, other soon-to-be-mothers.

Enter the pregnancy blog.

We were blown away by the incredible depth and range of discussion going on out there in the pregnancy and birthosphere: Sure there's the odd flame war, but there are just as many exchanges between pregnant women trying to make sense of their choices and experiences. We can get real information from the bloggers out there writing on everything from surviving bedrest to preparing for a VBAC to struggling with infertility and miscarriage.

Reading a post that touches on your own personal experience can do a lot to keep from you from feeling like a lunatic, or at least remind you that there are others out there who are just as crazy as you. Plus, these bloggers can be so damn funny, they make it hard not to laugh at their sorry situations - and maybe your own.

It was really tough to trim our list to 50 out of the huge range of pregnancy blogs out there - and hey, some of them are only "pregnancy blogs" for 40 weeks so catch them while you can - but that's where you come in. Please nominate your favorite blog! Look for your nominations on our 2012 list next year and, in the meantime, read, write, and link up, mother-to-mother, blogger-to-blogger. - Ceridwen Morris

Top 50 Pregnancy Blogs: Blacktating: Breastfeeding News and Views From a Mom of Color



Blacktating’s Rankings

Started by a breastfeeding mom of color, this has become a popular site for breastfeeding support and community. The blog’s author, Elita, takes on the politics of breastfeeding – Michelle Obama’s push for increased breastfeeding within the African-American community, for example – as well as the more personal aspects (she shares her own stories and stories from other breastfeeding moms). The tone here is always supportive, intelligent, and insightful. And the advice is downright practical. The blog has extended to include Elita’s other passions: attachment parenting and natural living.

    I am looking for feedback from Expectant and New Moms (delivered within the last year or so) for a short survey. All respondents who complete the survey will be entered to win a $100 BabiesRUs Gift Card :)

    The survey is about a technology that would allow doctors to send ultrasound images and video directly from an ultrasound machine to the patient’s phone/PC/tablet vs. traditional CDs or thermal paper copies. I have included a link to the survey below for any moms interested in participating. Thank you :)

    Much of that depends on wehehtr you decide to breastfeed. If you do, you can’t use the pill until you stop. If you don’t, your doctor will prescribe the pill for you at your 6 week checkup. Make sure you get a sample pack from him/her so you can start taking it once you get your period. You of course have many options when it comes to birth control besides the pill, but the pill is a good one. Good luck to you and your baby!
