I'm excited to announce that my best friend is expecting!
She's announced it on Facebook and everyone knows that's the official word these days, right?
This is how she announced it:
Daria is "16 and pregnant. One of these things is true."
So, that means I now have an excuse to talk about baby stuff! And I hope to help with the shower, nursery decorations and new mommie advice! I already bought her the Girlfriend's Guide to Pregnancy. I loved that book when I was pregnant - the advice is invaluable. Things like knowing that the first ultrasound isn't what the movies make it look like and how incredible those frozen things they give you in the hospital to help with the pain are.
I wish they had blogs back when my little guy was born. I guess they did, but I didn't know about them. I could have used some advice when my little guy cried every night from 6:00 - 8:00, when he wouldn't sleep at night, when he'd get a cold or when I just needed a sanity check. You mommies don't know how good you have it now - to be able to Tweet or blog an issue and get so much wonderful advice from other mommies out there.
So, as one of my many gifts to her, I'm asking you friends and mommies, what do you wish you'd known then (pre-baby) that you know now (after-baby that you'd like to share with her?
