From the Author
When I became pregnant with our twin daughters, I felt elated and quickly headed to the bookstore to buy books on pregnancy, baby care, you name it. What I didn't buy were pregnancy planners. I was disappointed with their meager lists, disorganized format, and lack of practical usefulness. As I read books and parenting magazines, checked out baby catalogs and store shelves, and asked a million questions of my Mom friends, I developed my own system for getting myself organized. I created easy-to-use charts and checklists loaded with the advice and recommendations I gathered. I started lending out my lists to other confused first-time Moms and was greeted with sighs of relief as well as genuine enthusiasm. In time, I realized I had the beginnings of a book here. My desire to help reach a wider audience and find a more flexible career sent me on a new journey which has culminated in the writing and publication of this book. I was fortunate to find a publisher who shared my vision of a practical, informative, easy-to-carry, and hip book for today's woman and am thrilled with the results! I hope my book helps relieve some of your first-time jitters and eases your journey into motherhood. Congratulations!
