Giveaway: What To Expect When You're Expecting

As promised last Friday, I have a giveaway for you today.  And not just any giveaway, a giveaway  from the one and only What To Expect When You're Expecting.

You know that WTEWYE (yes, I'm using a 6 letter acronym) is a book, arguably the bible of pregnancy reads.  You also know that it's a movie, a recently released movie that stars Cameron Diaz.  I still haven't seen it and the thought of Cameron Diaz with a fake baby bump still isn't appealing to me.  But that's neither here nor there.  You may not know that WTEWYE is also a website, an iPhone app and a collection of books.  WTEWYE is taking over the pregnant world.

Cameron with her fake bump for the movie.   Believable?


The WTEWYE collection of books includes the original that you know, What to Expect in the First Year and What to Expect in the Second Year.  From what I hear, the First and Second Year books are just as crucial as their predecessor, which makes me exceptionally happy about today's giveaway - the FULL collection.

Prize: What to Expect book series including What to Expect When You're Expecting, What to Expect in the First Year and What to Expect in the Second Year.
How to enter (and win): Post a comment (on this blog, BELOW) about what you expect to happen when you're pregnant or what you did expect about pregnancy before you pregnant.  Craving pickles and ice cream?  Going up a bra size?  Barfing...frequently?
Enter by: Thursday, June 28, 2012 at 5 pm (EST), no exceptions...sorry
Number of Winners: Two!!!
Shipping: US only
Winner Announcement: Two winners will be randomly selected using http://random-draw.org and posted Friday (6/29/12) afternoon.  So, check back!


So, what are/were you expecting???

I'm expecting to be sicker than a dog and barfing my guts up...I already have a sensitive stomach and I feel that pregnancy will doom me.

Amy said...

I expected to be super sick with morning sickness. EVERYONE I know got sick while they were pregnant, but I was super lucky during my first trimester & felt pretty great!

Nicole said...

I expected to crave pickles because I love them but while I was pregnant I didn't even want to eat them or smell them!!! :)

I expected to be miserable! There are too many people who share the joys of pregnancy- most tend to share their woes. So I was surprised when my pregnancy wasn't so bad!

I expected to be terribly sick but thankfully just sporadic nausea no actual throwing up. :)

I expect I'm going to be a 'pregzilla' and have crazy mood swings that will send my husband running for the hills! As long as I've waited to get pregnant, I don't care what happens to me. I'll take it all. :)

Lisa said...

I was expecting to be nauseous, which I'm not. But I am expecting all the comments/advice/unwanted information from strangers, friends, co-workers, non-moms . . .

Jessica Morris said...

I expect to hear crazy, unwanted stories/advice from everyone and their dog. Oh wait, I HAVE been hearing crazy, unwanted stories/advice from everyone and their dog because I'm pregnant with my first!

What EVERYONE, strangers included, told me to expect and would happen, DIDN'T.
I did get chronic lower back pain and heartburn that had me seeing stars. Especially when my lil Peanut demanded hot sauce with every meal!!
The upgrade from 32C to 36D made up for that except for the near-mastitis scare we got when my milk came in less than 18hrs after I gave birth. 36D to 38DD INSTANTLY (7lbs). I was producing 10ounces of milk in between feedings and it took us 3days to get latching-on perfected!!! Tiring but worth it xx
