The Pregnancy Countdown Book counts down the biggest milestones every step of the way, with one page of helpful information for each day of your pregnancy.

231 Days to Go: Your baby is now the size of a small blueberry.
209 Days to Go: Your baby's heartbeat is now audible.
124 Days to Go: Doctors recommend that you stop sleeping on your back.
91 Days to Go: The window for air travel is closing fast, so take that final vacation.
45 Days to Go: Better get started on that nursery.
