So I won some What to Expect books from a giveaway on Mom of the Year. Which is really awesome. I’ve been obsessed with the latter two lately. But the first one, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, I already had. So I’m turning it around into a Femme Frugality giveaway!
Check out the Rafflecopter box below for ways to get entries. I couldn’t have survived pregnancy (at least not sanely) without this book. Doctors’ visits only go so far and I only remembered to ask so many questions. These make great gifts for mamas-to-be, too. So if you don’t have a bun in the oven, enter for your wifey, girlfriend, or friend.
BEFORE ALL THE MEN LEAVE…this book has a section for papas, too. My mom got the boyfriend My Boys Can Swim! which was also great. It was written entertainingly I guess. It was short. And it prepared you for how to deal with your preggo lady.
