Publisher's Summary

It’s a cover-to-cover revision of America’s best-selling guide to getting pregnant, with updated information about genetic screening, ovulation tracking, fertility treatments, and risks like Zika.  

What to Expect Before You’re Expecting has everything that eager-to-be moms and dads need to know about getting pregnant, from getting their bodies ready to make a healthy baby to getting that healthy baby on board faster. You'll find 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.  

With the latest on health insurance coverage, preconception travel and the Zika virus, sex selection techniques, antidepressants, and information on family-building options for single women and same-sex couples. Plus, for the one in eight couples who experience infertility, the latest on both low-tech and cutting-edge fertility treatments, from medications to IVF and surrogacy. It’s everything you need to know for that baby-making adventure.  

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

Must listen before TTC

It's really well written and easy to follow even if you don't know what TTC is.

I enjoyed how they made it easy to follow the abbreviated words and that it covers everything including infertility and how to cope with miscarriage.

I will also be reading /listening to the rest of this series.

Thank you
