It’s no secret that reoccurring themes in my blog are pregnancy and motherhood. When it came time to buy my first pregnancy book there really was only one name that popped into my head instantly….”What to Expect When You’re Expecting”!  The “What to Expect” series has to be one of the most well known guides for women who are having a baby, and/or already have one! The book series along with the “What To Expect” website, has been a guide for me since the moment I allowed myself to believe that the pregnancy was really real.

Now that my son is one,  I can officially say that I have read both “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” as well as “What to Expect the First Year”. I can’t believe it! I used to wait each month to read what should happen that month. In both pregnancy and the baby months the articles were right on. I have always loved the honesty, even when it scared me to death! Now, as I am entering my second year, I have put the “What to Expect the Second Year” book right on my night stand just so I can keep up with what is going to happen next. It’s all a mystery to me!

In honor of my son’s first birthday, the people at want to give 6 lucky readers their choice of either “What To Expect When You’re Expecting”, “What To Expect The First Year”, or “What To Expect the Second Year”. How fun is that? The contest will run for 1 full week, and the winner will be chosen on Tuesday December 13th! Just in time for the holidays!
