From day ONE you're doing the work, but somehow most resources kind of ignore the first & second trimesters...

The Pregnancy Handbook

For the expectant mom or parent who wants guidance beyond,
“your baby is the size of a blackberry” (very cute, yes, but what about
you?).

Because no one should feel like I did after taking a positive
home pregnancy test and racing excitedly to the walk-in clinic...

Only to have the doctor take their own test and decide I was “not pregnant.” I told them about the positive test and they kind of shrugged me off. It was as if they felt I wasn’t “pregnant enough” to count. 

So I pushed a little more and they finally sighed and handed me a form for a blood work test. I walked out of the clinic and looked down at the paper and saw they had written, in big red letters on the requisition form, “NOT pregnant.” 

What the hell? I went home, deflated, and feeling completely overlooked. Needless to say, no one handed me any information about what I was going through or what my next steps were.

That's why we created this guide to support you through the often-overlooked but most-asked questions throughout the first and second trimesters.
