“What To Expect When You’re Expecting” was my go to resource when I was pregnant with my two boys. I was so excited to hear it was being transformed into a movie and even more excited when I found out I was going to get the chance to go see a special screening in Atlanta sponsored by Centrum Specialist® PreNatal, complete with a special t-shirt made especially for me and a guest to wear during our photo shoot. Who wouldn’t be excited? Well, I am have some news for you – FIVE OF MY READERS (and a guest of their own) are coming with me and getting shirts and shots (photographs that is) of their own!
When I was pregnant I expected to give birth naturally with my first son, unfortunately he had other plans and I was forced to have a C-section. With my second son I anticipated that my experience would be as difficult as it was with my first, but I was really surprised how easy my recovery was after the second C-section. So, I guess you never know for sure what’s going to happen….

I did not know what to expect when I was expecting! Being a nanny previously I felt like I had a good amount of experience and wasn’t really worried about anything! My only concern was birth itself where I had expectations of pain and well of course they were right 😉 Now I am just waiting to see what it’s like to add another one! 🙂
Hello there, before all I know that centrum is only a supplements for both gender who does work out, I never knew that this supplements can be use by pregnant women, but now you have given me a bright idea. this is very useful specially for me.
I had my son when I was 18, and being that young I had NO IDEA what to expect. I purchased “What to Expect When You’re Expecting”, but the very next day while I was at work my Pug puppy tore it to shreds. I had a good hormonal cry and scraped my book off the floor. I googled pregnancy books and found “Belly Laughs” by Jenny McCarthy. She told me more than I ever knew, not to mention more than I ever wanted to know. From then on I expected to make mistakes, have “Mush Brain” and laugh at every weird pregnancy blooper. 🙂
Earlier treatment and information on how to get pregnant is recommended if one has one or more risk factors such as: irregular or absent menstrual periods; uterine or tubal disease, endometriosis or hormonal imbalance; previously diagnosed with a STI and partner is sub fertile.
First off, this movie looks HILARIOUS so what a fun giveaway! Secondly, if I’ve learned anything from my recent pregnancy, labor & delivery experience, and new journey into motherhood, it’s to expect the unexpected!! I had “morning” sickness all day every day from 3 weeks, 3 days all the way to 20 weeks. I had sciatic nerve pain/numbness in my right leg (and still do!), severe heartburn so bad my nose would burn, and a whole list of other things throughout my pregnancy so I thought surely my labor & delivery would go easy since pregnancy was so rough. Yea, right! Lol. Allergic reaction to the epidural I had to have not one, but two redoses of, severe migraine, blood pressure dropping to 50/20 at one point, getting the highest dose of Pitocin possible so I got all swollen and poofy, all to find out that after 25 hours of labor, he wouldn’t fit through me! I was so upset about having to have a C Section, but once my sweet baby boy was brought into the world, none of that mattered anymore! I now have a healthy, growing, beautiful 8 week old baby boy and I would do it all over again for him. But I will be honest, I’m hoping the next pregnancy is a little easier on me! 🙂
My pregnancy with my son was so easy, but when I found out I was pregnant a year ago, my little girl started the dramatics early. Even labor with her was dramatic and my husband almost missed her birth because I sent him to go get something to eat thinking it was going to be a while. Within 15 mins of him being gone I was ready to push. Since Ansley’s birth she has had servere acid relux which makes leaving her alone with anyone difficult ( us they know what to do). Having a 4 year old boy and a 4 month old girl is a juggling act, but thankfully I have my husband to help me out! I expect her to be like her father, but I pray that she is more like me. But if there is one thing that I have learned so far, when it comes to little girls you’ll never know what to expect!
It seems like so many aspects of pregnancy are so unexpected. I don’t have kids yet, but seeing my friends have their first babies has shown me that pregnancy and childbirth is full of surprises.
I expected to gain 50 lbs and look completely different from my “regular” self. I also expected to experience nausea, pain, and a lot of discomfort. I can honestly say I’ve been really blessed not to have experienced any of these. I have had a great pregnancy and I’m hoping for an even easier delivery but maybe that’s asking too much. 🙂
I am really happy to glance at this webpage posts which includes plenty of helpful facts, thanks for providing these
