It's easy to get so wrapped up in your pregnancy and thoughts about birth that you overlook one small detail: your BABY! In my first pregnancy, I was consumed with reading books, talking about and seeking answers to everything related to my pregnancy and upcoming birth. It wasn't until the last couple of months of my pregnancy that I started reading about and preparing for life with a baby! And that's probably a good thing -- if I had started the process any earlier, my pregnancy brain wouldn't have remembered anything after birth!
There are, of course, so many things to know about your new life with a baby, most of which you can only learn by living through the experience. But if you're anything like me (and a few other moms I know), and you want to know what you're in for, take a look at these links for some practical information and tips.
