What to Expect: Eating Well When You're Expecting

Front Cover
Simon and Schuster, Jul 15, 2010 - Family & Relationships - 480 pages
EATING WELL WHEN YOU'RE EXPECTING provides mums-to-be with a realistic approach to navigating healthily and deliciously through the nine months of pregnancy - at home, in the office, at Christmas, in restaurants. Thorough chapters are devoted to nutrition, weight gain, food safety, the postpartum diet, and how to eat when trying to conceive again. And the book comes with 150 contemporary, tasty, and healthy recipes that feed mum and baby well, take little time to prepare, and are gentle on queasy tummies.

At the heart of the book are hundreds of pressing questions every mother-to-be has: Is it true I shouldn't eat any food cooked with alcohol? Will the caffeine in coffee cross into my baby's bloodstream? I'm entering my second trimester, and I'm losing weight, not gaining - help! Is all sushi off limits? How do I get enough calcium if I'm lactose intolerant? I keep dreaming about a hot fudge sundae - can I indulge? (The answer is yes!)

My husband and I have been married for 11 years. We have being having sexual intercourse year after year. I thought I was a loser, a weakling. I couldn't believe I couldn't handle pain. I always thought "how come everyone can do it but me? What is wrong with me?" I felt I was the only one in this world that had this problem. One day my husband came home and showed me this website he had printed out. It was about vaginas and pages and pages of women sharing their stories and testimony on how a spell caster help them make babies, MY STORIES!!!! I started crying like a little baby. I couldn't believe I wasn't the only one in this world. I was not a wimp, I really had a problem. To make my very long story short, i decided to contact this spell caster Dr zogo on his email zogospellcasters@gmail.com after interaction with him he instructed me on what to do, after then i had sex with the man I love most in this world, within the
next one months i went for a check up and my doctor confirmed that i am 2weeks pregnant and so happy!!! and My husband was the one that found the site, who I will always be thankful to, not for finding it but for believing in me and not leaving me. And thank YOU Dr zogo for saving my marriage. Thank you so much. To all those women out there, contact this great spell caster on this email zogospellcasters@gmail.com he can solve your problem and be patient and also believe in yourself. It will happen to you, just like it happened to me."

In 2005, she was inducted into the Books For A Better Life Hall of Fame. Heidi Murkoff conceived the idea for What to Expect When You're Expecting during her first pregnancy, when she couldn't find answers to her questions in the books sheżd turned to for advice. The The New York Times bestseller is now in its fourth edition, with more than 17 million copies in print. According to USA Today, What to Expect When You're Expecting is read by 93 percent of women who read a pregnancy book.

The What to Expect books have sold more than 34 million copies in the U.S. alone and are published in more than 30 languages. Murkoff's What to Expect Kids picture book series for preschoolers include What to Expect When Mommy's Having a Baby, What to Expect When the New Baby Comes Home, What to Expect When You Use the Potty, and What to Expect at Preschool. In 2005, Murkoff expanded the What to Expect (WTE) brand online with www.whattoexpect.com as a companion to the books.
