What To Expect Giveaway

It has been such a long time since I have done a giveaway but I think I'm ready now that I have graduated from college. I love doing these things and now I have more time again finally.

I have four daughters. Each time I was pregnant I referred to the What to Expect series. Do you remember those books? They are amazing. I read them every single day. I marked my pages and referred back to them constantly. My sister was also pregnant at the same time as me during two of my pregnancies. I would relay the information to her as well. I had the answers because of these books! haha I have to admit it has been the source of a lot of the information I already had when I started nursing school. I had an advantage in the obstetrics and pediatrics courses because of the information I got in these books.

My favorite book was What to Expect When You're Expecting. I particularly loved the comparisons to the size of the growing baby inside me. It was just so amazing and really helped me to visualize how big my baby was. The books continue to What to Expect The First Year, and What to Expect The Second Year. I also referred to The First Year book. It helped me a lot and I continue to pull information from these books. They are such a great resource.

What to has contacted me and offered to host a giveaway on my blog! I am honored to be a part of this as I whole heartily support these books. I know if you are pregnant or if you have a young child you will love these books! For this giveaway I will be giving away the first 3 books of this series including:

What to expect wthen expecting is deffinately my favorite, especially since I haven't read the other two. It was well worth the time, and I too read and reread portions of it. I think I would enjoy reading the other two as well.

I think your story is inspiring Sandee and think it's awesome that you are now done with school!! I am a single mom trying to go school for nursing and I just hope I pass. I have 3 kids and it is tough, but I know if you did it with all you've been through that I can do it too! You are inspiring to a lot of people I know! My sister just found out she is pregnant and it will be her first child. I would love to give these books to her because she would really use them being her 1st pregnancy:-) Hope you have a good 2012!!!
