Take a sneak peek of what to expect:
The First Trimester
The first three months of pregnancy are some of the toughest, but I’m here to help! Whether you were planning your pregnancy or not, this adventure starts with a missed period. Don’t spare any expense in investing in a reputable home pregnancy test to determine if this is the real deal. Once you and your partner have determined that she’s pregnant, there will be a lot of questions about what to expect during the first several weeks.
The Second Trimester
For many women, the second trimester is by far the easiest—not that any pregnancy stages are easy in reality. However, this period tends to find Mom getting over a lot of her early pregnancy symptoms and getting her appetite and energy back. The baby will be going through massive developmental leaps, which we will cover. One of the most exciting developments is that this trimester will reveal whether you’re having a boy or a girl.
The Third Trimester
Dude. You’re in the final stretch! You’re two-thirds of the way there and almost to the finish line.
The third trimester starts off on a very positive note. Baby’s viability increases to close to 100 percent if born prematurely. This takes a lot of stress off both parents, but especially Mom.
The “Fourth Trimester”
A final round of congratulations is in order—welcome to the club, Dad! A lot of people don’t think about the fact that Mom needs a good 40 days to recover from the entire process. It takes another several weeks for both parents and baby to get on any type of routine or schedule. That’s one of the reasons why we think that the three months after delivery deserves its own designation as a trimester.
“While nothing can truly prepare a man for fatherhood, this book comes pretty darn close. Part handbook, part handholding, Adrian’s words will comfort and prepare even the most terrified dads-to-be. Your partners will thank you, I promise!”―Jill Smokler, founder of Scary Mommy
“We’re Pregnant delivers the right balance of clinical information and ways to support expecting moms, all while speaking to what men need to hear in a way that will make sense to them and their roles as fathers. Writing and coaching as a once clueless and misguided first-time dad, Adrian clearly understands the challenges ahead and makes it his mission to get first-time dads to pay attention, and most importantly to understand what it means to provide support.”―Heather B. Armstrong, creator of dooce®
"When my wife was expecting for the first time, I had little to no clue what to do. I learned an incredible amount from my wife (she already had 50 nieces and nephews) and her doctor, but I wish there would've been a book out there that could have given me the knowledge and encouragement to better connect with her during pregnancy. Now that book has arrived.
