25 Days of Christmas: Win a copy of “Your Second Pregnancy” ($18.95)


Your Second Pregnancy ($18.95)

Most pregnancy books are written for and directed towards
first time new parents.  By the time you
are a second time pregnant, it is expected that your anxiety level goes down
and you are more comfortable in your role as a parent and need less guidance. 
To the contrary, a second pregnancy carries different concerns and issues such
as balancing pregnancy while having a small child or toddler in tow, attempting
to deliver vaginally after having a Caesarean which is quite a challenge and
coping with sibling rivalry or possibly infertility or challenges conceiving again
after having an easy time the first go round.
Enter Drs Keith A. Eddleman and Joanne Stone, authors of The
Pregnancy Bibile
with a refreshing new book,  “Your Second Pregnancy.”
Even though the book, published this year,  is penned by doctors, Second Pregnancy
stays away from too many medical terminology and jargon and gets right to it,
digging into topics parents the second time around may face: the emotional,
financial  and practical considerations
of adding to the family and provides stats on optimal spacing and the delivers
info about the age-range of  women have
second pregnancies.  As a person who has
strong issues over the age gap, I really enjoyed the discussion of the pros and
cons of waiting too long or going for it again sooner than later.
From there, the doctors get into more details about
fertility that a first time mother may not have gotten into much especially if
she conceived quickly. The book provides ample suggestions on dealing with
preparing a sibling for the arrival of a new baby, caring for a sick child that
could contaminate you while pregnant, and preparing for life as a two child
parent which includes knowing which double stroller and other gear to get to
help you manage.
Some of the advice wasn’t new and the approach and offerings
were a bit simple in some sections. I would imagine a know-it-all mom would
just turn to her library from her first pregnancy if she needed some refreshers
on some detail she may have forgotten.
Nonetheless, this book is a quick read and is handy like a
resource or reference guide. It could be a good idea to go through it and jot
down thoughts and having it is a guide would be quite helpful.  At $18.95, it could also be a good gift to
get your spouse who said she only wanted one kid. What a way to nudge her
