Publisher Description

Expecting to expect? Plan ahead with What to Expect Before You’re Expecting, America’s best-selling guide to getting pregnant, now available for the first time ever in audio, and narrated by author Heidi Murkoff. It’s your first step in What to Expect—an all-in-one plan for getting pregnant, from getting your bodies ready for conception, to getting that healthy baby on board faster.

With her trademark empathy, warmth, honesty, and humor, Heidi offers practical advice, savvy strategies, and reassuring, relatable answers to every conceivable question you might have about how to fast-track conception—and support through any bumps you might encounter along the way to that baby bump of your dreams. You'll hear how to figure out your fertility (and his); about baby-friendly foods to order up (say yes to yams); fertility busters to avoid (see you later, saturated fat); how to pinpoint ovulation, time baby-making sex, keep on-demand sex sexy, and separate conception fact (it takes the average couple up to 12 months to make a baby) from myth (position matters). Plus how lifestyle (from how much you work out to how much coffee you drink to whether you or your partner smoke or use marijuana), weight, age, and other factors can impact fertility for hopeful moms and dads.

This go-to-guide to getting pregnant presents the most up-to-date information on health insurance coverage, genetic screening, preconception travel, sex selection techniques, and family-building options for single women and same-sex couples. And, for the one in eight couples who experience infertility, What to Expect Before You’re Expecting offers the latest on both low-tech and cutting-edge fertility treatments, from medications to IVF and surrogacy. It’s everything you and your partner need to know for that baby-making adventure ahead.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, an accompanying PDF of charts and diagrams will be available in your Audible Desktop Library along with the audio.
