The Pregnancy Test By Melissa Heckseher with Emily Sikking, M.D. Paperback 2011


Synopsis
Expecting moms have plenty of weird and blush-worthy questions they'd rather not ask their doctors: "Is it okay to get a bikini wax?" "Can my baby cry in the womb?" "Why have I gained so much weight?" The Pregnancy Testturns these questions and others into a delightful multiple-choice guessing game, complete with carefully researched and informative responses to the wildest and most outrageous concerns. Authors Melissa Heckscher and Dr. Emily Sikking test readers' knowledge of everything from fetal development to labor and delivery-and along the way, you'll learn why pregnant women should stay off roller coasters and go easy on caffeine. The perfect gift for new moms (and a terrific refresher course for seasoned veterans),The Pregnancy Testanswers everything you've ever wondered while expecting.

More than 150 serious questions from real moms-to-be, including: " Can I ride a rollercoaster in my first trimester? " Is it safe to pump my own gas? " Why is hair growing around my belly button? " Can I get pregnant when I’m already pregnant? " If I’m stung by a bee, can it hurt the baby? " If my baby only weighs one pound, why have I gained 15? Test your own maternity savvy-then turn the page and find out what the experts say! Being pregnant is no joke. So why are your family and friends laughing at so many of your questions about it? As an expectant mom, you need to knowwhether it’s okay to pump your own gas. You need to knowwhether one little cup of coffee will make your baby come out all jittery. That’s why authors Melissa Heckscher and Dr. Emily Sikking have prepared The Pregnancy Test: part multiple-choice quiz and part maternity reference book, offering carefully researched and informative answers to the most important, embarrassing, and slightly neurotic questions every mom-to-be has ever wondered. At long last-the whole truth about what to expect while you’re expecting!
