First of all to you all on your recent , especially my "sisters" from the TTC board who were right there beside me for my journey--I am so thrilled to see the next step of your journey beginning.

Also, for ALL of you ladies--I wanted to share this HCG chart I found on BabyMed. It is GREAT for those first several weeks of pregnancy because it breaks HCG down day by day instead of for the week and also explains that HCG doubling slows down once it hits a certain point. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did, and share it with others when they are concerned about their HCG--it has helped many of us in the November DDC rest a little easier.

hCG Level in Early Pregnancy | BabyMed.com

Also, a couple recommendations on books to get. I really wanted the "What to Expect when your Expecting" book...until I read reviews on Amazon. It scared the daylights out of me, if you are interested in this book I urge you to read some of the reviews--it's not like there is one negative review, it seemed almost every review was negative. Instead I ordered the "Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy" book, I really like it. It gives me a weekly breakdown on what my body is doing and what the baby is doing. In addition it goes in childbirth and even a little of the newborn stuff. Also, for any first time moms or moms having a baby after their youngest has "grown up"..my sister bought me a book called "Baby Bargains". I LOVE IT!! It rates each baby product, brand, model. They rate things from baby food up to diaper bags, cribs, strollers and everything in between. Here is the best part---they rate it based on actual MOM reviews! I love it, and it will definitely be my right-hand man when registry/baby shopping comes around.

I wish you all a happy and healthy 9 months!

Thanks Brandy!!! For a while I was bummed that you're in the Nov DDC instead of the Dec one - but now I realize it's so you can figure everything out first
