Our growing pregnancy library...

Pregnancy books seem geared to accomplish one of two different things.

Soothe or terrify you.

Our initial purchase was the well known "What to expect when you want to loose complete control of your life." June down the street was a gentle ear that FB spoke with early on and she lent us "The book with a peaceful soothing cover that gently prepares you for losing complete control of your life."

Once we were finally pregnant Doctor Molotov gifted us with "Frightening book your HMO wants you to have to realize you are in deep doo doo." It is a book loaded with gigantic, full page, black and white illustrations that leave no secrets to the process. It's just the sort of thing I've been wanting to read during the dinner hour. "Oh look. An illustration of "crowning" just in time for desert."

Christmas brought us the sacred tome "They're bigger for a reason so keep your hands off." I'm sure more will follow but admit I'm afraid of what they'll contain.
