It is incredible how quickly time goes by during the whole nine months of pregnancy. One minute you are taking a pregnancy test and the next you are holding your bundle of joy. Pregnancy brings us a chance to get ourselves prepared for Motherhood. Take all the lessons you can handle and read as much as you can! Although books and advice can't always help you with the realness of a newborn baby in the family, they help give peace of mind that you are not alone.

During my pregnancies over the years, aside from having 20 questions for my doctor each visit, I did a whole lot of reading. My pregnant brain was like a sponge just absorbing all this new information about this little being I had growing inside my belly.

I read books and information pamphlets, I searched for websites, forums and anything really with topics from pregnancy all the way to the preschool years. We are lucky the world is fruitful with information in books and at our fingertips online. I didn't attend prenatal classes or anything like that but I had also read a ton about labour and birth, breathing and different methods etc. For the most part my doctor has always been a great help too aside from family or friends. If I had any questions or concerns, I knew where I could go for my answers.

Everyone is different and every pregnancy is different. Do what's best for you and your baby. Just know that there is support out there from pregnancy, birth and beyond right in your own community.


Recently P&G along with Walmart Canada began helping moms across the country by sponsoring a series of prenatal programs in hospitals and community centres by providing soon-to-be parents with special gift bags with Pampers product. These reusable Walmart gift bags include a package of Pampers Swaddlers, a sample of Pampers Wipes and a pamphlet containing useful information for new parents.

  3. Shiny floors... what are they?! With two boys and a dog, I can't remember the last time my floors actually shined. I use to use a special cleaner that made them gleam but it was time consuming and never lasted long enough to make it worth while.

  4. Nothing great. I quick mop often.. about every 2 days.. which means serious mopping is about monthly and not as difficult.

  5. No, I don't do anything in particular and that's probably why my floors seem dull!
    Cheers.

  13. You are doing JUST FINE. Don't let everyone and their sister's cousin's best friend tell you what you should and should not do with your baby. Trust your instincts and you'll do great.

  14. Save money - change your habits to be more frugal and start planning early for education funds etc.
