About the Author
When Julie B. Carr was pregnant, her mother asked her, "What's happening to your baby today?"
Challenged, Julie did extensive research to answer that question and came up with a unique countdown guide/journal, which she self-published. Her self-published Countdown to My Birth now has over 20,000
copies in print. Most of the sales have been to infant shops, maternity shops, and hospital gift stores.
Julie lives with her husband and two children in Oregon.

I like that:
It's well made, stands up on built in stand, paper is a good quality
It has special stickers with landmarks at the back
It has lines on each page to add your own notes
It goes all the way to 41 weeks, 6 days for those late bloomers
I don't like that:
It seems to get ahead of itself. Measurement estimates for the first half of pregnancy vary pretty significantly from all other resources (including several doctor's offices). I solve this problem by crossing out measurements and entering them from other resources or from my own medical data.
Overall great product and I would recommend it to others.
(1) It's a good way to keep track of what week you're in and how many days you have left until your due date
(2) Most of the daily entries are helpful (particularly the weight/length/growth ones). There are a few entries that are completely useless (particularly near the end when baby has all its essential organs and is just growing) but it's still a nice reminder that baby is coming soon
(3) It's a way for my husband to feel involved. We read the entries together and it helps him get an idea of what is going on with baby.
I definitely recommend that you go through the calendar as soon as you get it and write the dates on each page, since we sometimes skip a day or two and need to read multiple at one time. A couple friends have gotten this for the grandparents-to-be and recommend this as a great gift so that the grandparents also feel involved in the process.
