<h4>*** <strong>Buy now for only $2.99 (eBook price will soon return to $9.99) </strong>***</h4><p><strong><u>Whether your pregnancy was meticulously planned, medically coaxed, or happened by surprise, one thing is certain – your life will never be the same...</u></strong></p><p>If you are pregnant, or planning a pregnancy, then this book will be an asset to your journey. In practical wording and presentation, it covers essential topics such as: Antenatal screening, foetal development and high-risk pregnancy.</p><p>The first stage of pregnancy can be challenging. You may not have informed others yet, but are still having to cope with symptoms, such as tiredness and nausea, with no outward signs of pregnancy.  </p><ul><li>Chapter 1 can help you prepare for the “whys and wherefores” of symptoms, along with some tips to help you cope. </li><li>If you are confused about the tests you will require, through pregnancy, look no further, “<strong>Pregnancy: The Ultimate Guide to Pregnancy and Birth” </strong>has a thorough guide to the relevant blood tests and antenatal scans.</li><li>Nutrition in pregnancy is vitally important for mother and baby. The myth about “eating for two,” is simply not true. It is advised that only an extra 350 to 500 calories are needed, in your 2<sup>nd</sup> and 3<sup>rd</sup> trimesters. Without the correct balance of vitamins, minerals, nutrients and calories, you are putting both you and your baby at risk. Excess calories, in the way of fats and sugar, can cause gestational diabetes and birth complications. This guide will help you understand the dietary requirements of pregnancy, and covers foods that should be avoided.</li><li>Exercising may not always be at the forefront of your mind, when pregnant; especially in the initial stages, if suffering morning sickness; or the late stages when just standing can be a chore! Along with diet, exercise can help maintain a healthy weight throughout pregnancy. However, not all exercise is advised. This book will guide you through which exercise you can safely continue and the ones to avoid, until after pregnancy.</li><li>It can be reassuring and fascinating to know how your baby is developing, throughout pregnancy. “<strong>Pregnancy: The Ultimate Guide to Pregnancy and Birth” </strong>gives you a detailed account. It also informs you of maternal changes, occurring under the influence of hormones; also the effect the baby’s growth has on your body.</li><li>What you need to buy for the baby, and when, can be an expensive consideration. You will find practical help, with regards to the items necessary to buy before the baby is born, and what can safely wait until later. Remember, it’s not just baby to consider, mum will need a few things too!</li></ul><p>Pregnancy can feel unpredictable and of course you want everything to be perfect. Less than 20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage, and as the saying goes “forewarned is forearmed” so knowing the risk factors, and how to reduce them, can be reassuring.</p><p>At the end of the book is a quick reference guide to commonly asked questions. This section gives practical tips on how to deal with issues, such as morning sickness, but also advice on a range of other issues: like constipation and is it safe to fly during pregnancy?</p><p>This book will help you better understand conception and beyond. However,<strong><em> it is in no way intended to replace advice given by your doctor, consultant or midwife</em></strong>. If you are feeling unwell, experiencing unusual symptoms, or feel unable to cope, contact your health professional immediately.</p><p>Congratulations on your pregnancy and the journey you are about to embark on!</p><h4><strong>***Amazon will give you the option to purchase this kindle edition for FREE (on check out) when you buy the paperback version from Amazon!!***</strong></h4>

<DIV>How does one make a decision today about in vitro fertilization, abortion, egg freezing, surrogacy, and other matters of reproduction? This book provides the intellectual and emotional intelligence to help individuals make informed choices amid misinformation and competing claims. Scott Gilbert and Clara Pinto-Correia, renowned scientists and communicators, speak to the couple trying to become pregnant, the woman contemplating an abortion, and the student searching for sound information about human sex and reproduction. Their book is an enlightening read for men as well as for women, describing in clear terms how babies come into existence through both natural and assisted reproductive pathways. <BR><BR>The book first covers the most recent and well-grounded scientific conclusions about fertilization and early human embryology. It then discusses the reasons why some of the major forms of assisted reproductive technologies were invented, how they are used, and what they can and cannot accomplish. Most important, the authors explore the emotional side of using these technologies to become pregnant, focusing on those who have emptied their emotions and bank accounts in a valiant effort to get pregnant. This work of science and human biology is informed by a moral concern for our common humanity.</DIV>
