Editorial Reviews

Review

The planner is so thoughtfully organized you'll wonder just who the panel of experts is who created the book... -- Five Star Reviews, November 2006

From the Publisher

This edition of 40 weeks+ : the essential pregnancy organizer includes a convenient pocket for paperwork.

More About the Author

Dani Rasmussen is a professional woman who became frustrated with the lack of organizational tools available while pregnant with her first child. After unsuccessfully scouring bookstores for a planner suited to her needs she chose to create her own systems to organize the details and accommodate the collection of pregnancy paperwork and information. The synthesis of her system in conjunction with interviews of numerous other pregnant women resulted in this planner.

Customer Reviews

Makes for a great gift and is very organized and useful.
Nicole McGlynn
The only thing I would mention is that this is much more of a planner/organizer than it is a keepsake book to record memories of your pregnancy.
mrsmullen
I highly recommend this as a gift or for yourself if you are planning to become pregnant, or are recently pregnant.

There are so many reasons to love this pregnancy planner! To start with, it's the perfect size (no huge album-sized book to lug around - it fits right into my purse). It's also stylish - no goofy baby graphics - just simple and sophisticated. When I take it out, it does not scream "Look at me, I'm a pregancy planner!" like so many of the others available.

Moving on to the inside: what I really like about this planner is that the informational text is kept to a minimum (I have seen so many planners go overboard on informational text - it's like they can't decide whether they want to be a BOOK about pregnancy or a pregnancy planner, and some even seem to have more text than spaces for filling things in). 40 Weeks+ has a page of helpful text at the beginning of each section which explains where in the section you can find things, but other than that, this book is about YOU and YOUR BABY.

There are dozens of fantastic charts, checklists, and questions to get you thinking, jog your memory, and record every detail of your pregnancy. There are even sections to record memories and place photos, (as well as to record those first weeks and months after baby is born - weight, feeding schedules, etc.) which turns this very useful planner into a keepsake album at the end of the 40 weeks+!

The checklists for what to buy for baby, divided into "basics" and "helpful extras" are great, especially with all the Things To Buy there are at baby superstores - I'm not a big gadgets person, and it's nice to have a book that's NOT telling me that I MUST HAVE every last baby thing for sale in the world, but lets me know, as a first time mom, what's essential and what's a "helpful extra".

I just want to add how useful this planner is for dads-to-be. Prior to delivery, it was highly functional, helping us organize and prepare in so many ways. There was even a section dedicated exclusively to helping the coach (that's you, pop) get everything in order. However, when the big day arrived and the contractions started coming fast and furious, the planner moved from functional to absolutely indispensable.

The last thing I wanted to do was scramble around, pulling together phone lists, contraction charts, etc., and 40 Weeks + solved that problem wonderfully. All the notes and lists my wife was counting on me to bring to our birthing center were in one convenient place. I just grabbed our bags, our birth plan, and this planner, and off we went.

After delivery, the planner never left my side. I was able to track feedings and diaper changes, take notes on all the once-in-a-lifetime moments we experienced, and work through our call list without missing anyone. Believe me, if your experience is like mine, your partner's not going to want to deal with these details post-partum, and 40 Weeks + can definitely help you help her.

As a new dad, I heartily recommend it.

I looked at many pregnancy organizers and journals before deciding on this one. What I wanted most was a calendar that I could start at anytime (nothing too structured), a place to track prenatal visits & questions, a place for class notes, and pertinant lists & charts & timelines. This one fits the bill for the most part, but it was really the fact that it wasn't pink with pictures of ducks & puppies that I bought it. What I would like to see is some pockets to hold all the info sheets I get at my appointments (I only found 2 with this feature) and more space for notes.

This pregnancy organizer is one of the best that I've seen. It has a really great layout and lots of space if you're into interviewing ob's and pediatricians. Gives a calendar for 10 months. Lists questions you can ask your doctor, the peditrician, and your insurance company. I give this a 10 out of 10. THE BEST!!

I wish I had this from the first doctor's appt after I found out I was pregnant. The overwhelming amount of questions, dates and information can be quickly kept in this 1 book.

This book is very very very informative considering I am a 'first-timer'! It has everything you can think of from 'a healthy start' to 'at home with baby'. There are calenders, healthy diet charts, fetal movement charts-the works. If you want a book that has EVERYTHING than this book is for you. It's not a scrap book but more of a data entry type book. It was a little overwhelming at first but I've got it under control now.

This is an excellent gift for parents-to-be! I received it as a gift and used it every day of my pregnancy and during my newborn's first weeks at home. There are so many little details to keep track of during a pregnancy and this organizer really helped to put my mind at ease. It lays out a suggested timeline for preparing for a baby without being overwhelming. My husband also found it extremely helpful during my labor and it has become a nice little keepsake to look back on our pregnancy since there are pages to record details of pregnancy and baby's arrival.

I LOVE THIS ORGANIZER. Every new mommy should have it. I've used it to keep track of my pre-natal appointments as far as my weight, BP and fetal heart rate and questions I need to remember to ask and any suggestions from the OB. I used it for questions to ask the childcare provider, pediatrican, everyone..It's great. The pouch in the back I use to hold my birth plan and labor/delivery records. I love this organizer. It even has a checklist for what to pack for you and your labor coach. What to get for your nursery and a checklist for thank you notes. It's great!! I would advise any new mom to get this. It has helped me so so much. And it's cute and stylish...
