(from amazon.com): "Being pregnant is no joke. So why are your family and friends laughing at so many of your questions about it? As an expectant mom, you need to know whether it’s okay to pump your own gas. You need to know whether one little cup of coffee will make your baby come out all jittery. That’s why authors Melissa Heckscher and Dr. Emily Sikking have prepared The Pregnancy Test: part multiple-choice quiz and part maternity reference book, offering carefully researched and informative answers to the most important, embarrassing, and slightly neurotic questions every mom-to-be has ever wondered. At long last—the whole truth about what to expect while you’re expecting!"

The Prenatal Cradle
Much like a woman clasping her hands under her abdomen,
the Prenatal Cradle® supports the weight of pregnancy, yet
does not restrict mother or child. By freeing the arms and
promoting proper circulation to the lower extremities, the under-
garment also allows many mothers to remain active through the third trimester.
