Description

Whether your pregnancy was an “oopsie” or stemmed from intricately charted ovulation cycles, you are most likely going to kick off the party with a home pregnancy test. Or ten. And there you’ll be, staring at a little stick and waiting for it to change your entire life. It’s positive! This is the beginning of your most important story. But what do you do next? First: Freak out. Next...? Well, that's a different story. Dawn Dais, author of the series The Sh!t No One Tells You About, has compiled 102 tips and to‑dos that will get you up to speed for the biggest changes of your life—from the practical (prepare freezer meals), to the serious (check your blood sugar), to the seemingly‑frivolous‑but‑actually‑really‑important (go out with your husband or girlfriends to that restaurant you love).
 
102 Things to Do Before You Are Due is a practical and entertaining handbook that provides important advice for parents-to-be with eye‑catching illustrations, checklists, actionable charts, and many laugh‑out‑loud tips.
 
There are countless pregnancy books for first-time parents out there, but only 102 Things to Do Before You Are Due perfectly balances solid advice to prepare for a new baby and the right amount of humor to help you enjoy every month of the pregnancy.
