 Hi Future Mamas, I am a newbie to this side, and was wondering if you had any advice for things to get early on in pregnancy (5 weeks). I obviously know about the book what to expect when you are expecting, but is there a better one?. Signed up for the FREE american baby magazine, but are there more free things that I don't know about? Thoughts, ideas?

Yeah, I would recommend Dr. Sears "The Pregnancy Book". I hate the what to expect book... I feel like it can be a little biased.

I would say start looking into different ways your want to birth and weigh the pros and cons for yourself (natural vs. epidural/medicated). If you haven't, watch "The Business of Being Born". It's really informative. I guess from there you can kinda decide what direction you want to go in your pregnancy/labor/birth.

Also, whatever you choose make sure you know all the hospitals rules & regulations about labor and delivery beforehand so you know if its a good fit for you (no matter what kind of birth you have). You need to be prepared for all situations and have a hospital that supports you!

Good luck and congrats to you!
