Dear future mama : a TMI guide to pregnancy, birth, and new motherhood from your bestie / Meghan Trainor.


"Meghan Trainor has wanted to be a mom since before she even knew how babies were made. From the moment she discovered she was pregnant with her first child--her son, Riley--she was fascinated by the entire experience. Yes, pregnancy and motherhood are miracles--but even a miracle can freak you out sometimes. Everyone has an opinion on what an expectant mother should feel, think, or do during her pregnancy, and it's hard not to feel overwhelmed with app notifications, well-meaning questions, and unsolicited advice that comes from friends, family, and perfect strangers. Dear Future Mama is a heartfelt and humorous guide for expectant mamas inspired by Meghan's own journey into motherhood and expert insights from Meghan's own personal trainer, registered dietitian, husband, and ob-gyn. No shame, no judgment--just straight talk (and laughs) from a bestie who's been there, including: a TMI guide to the good, bad, and WTF of conception, pregnancy, and childbirth; advice about everything from ovulation apps to random hair growth; Meghan's personal stories about body image, mental health, and navigating her career path as a new mother; permission to find the right path for you; ignoring the judgment of others and freeing yourself from the shifting standards of motherhood." -- Provided by publisher.
