My husband makes fun of me because I just love reading about pregnancy, childbirth, and all that. I was thinking it would be fun to share what we're reading and what we think about it.
I'm currently reading The Vaccine Book by Robert Sears. So far it's pretty fascinating, but I'm still in the beginning.
I'm about halfway through The Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth by Henci Goer and Rhonda Wheeler. It's extremely biased towards natural birth, which is okay for me, but I don't really trust it too much because of the obvious bias. She tends to interpret facts in a way that will back herself up. It's pretty boring too, so I'm taking a break from it.
Sippy Cups are not for Chardonnay: I needed some humor, but it missed the mark...
Childproofing your Dog: If you have a dog, I really recommend it. Lot's of great tips that are really make sense, but I just didn't think about with my dd.
Ina May's Guide to Childbirth: Loved it! I skipped a lot of the birth stories though, but I'll come back to them.
Skinny Bitch Bun in the Oven: I like meat, and dairy, and eggs. There were some interesting tidbits on artificial sweetners though.
Hypnobirthing: I'm very interested in doing this, but I'm leaning a little more towards hypnobabies now. This might be an entirely different thread!
Your Best Birth: I thought this was a great read to help me decide what I really wanted to do in the beginning. I read this one before I got pregnant, and then I watched her documentary with my dh. She brings up a lot of good points, but isn't too overwhelming.
