    Pregnancy Week 10 - Getting Ready for the Big Reveal

    Pregnancy Week 10 - Getting Ready for the Big Reveal

    At 10 weeks, you’ve finally come to terms with your pregnancy. Now it’s time to start thinking about spreading the word to your friends and family, if you haven’t already (hands up if you Instagrammed your positive pregnancy test). Most people start sharing the big news around 12 weeks, but with a status update just a finger tap away, folks are starting to post their reveals even sooner. Whether you choose to speak out now or later, the trend seems to be to go big, bold and creative with your pregnancy reveal.

    Pregnancy Week 11 - Pregnancy - The Ultimate Relationship Test?

    Pregnancy Week 11 - Pregnancy - The Ultimate Relationship Test?

    At 11 weeks, you and your partner are still fairly new to this whole pregnancy thing. And it can take some adjusting. (You won’t be the only one with major mood swings over these next few months.) If you’re in a relationship, you might be wondering how having a baby will impact your partnership: Will it make it stronger? Will it be a test of your commitment? The truth is, probably both. A strong, healthy relationship will be more important than ever once a new human being comes along, but it certainly won’t always come easy.

    Pregnancy Week 12 - Hi, boss. I’m pregnant!

    It’s Week 12 and you’ve made it to the last week of your first trimester. Congrats!

This week’s episode covers everything you need to know about being pregnant at work.

    Pregnancy Week 13 - Who Says We Can’t Eat for Two?

    Pregnancy Week 13 - Who Says We Can’t Eat for Two?

    It’s Week 13 and, for many of you, the fog of the first trimester is finally lifting: You’re probably starting to feel like your old self again, minus the constant nausea and irksome food aversions. But out with the old and in with the new: With the start of the second trimester often comes extreme hunger. It sometimes feels like your body is making up for everything it missed out on in the last three months and wants to eat all food in its path. Good thing you’re eating for two... But are you, really?

    Pregnancy Week 14 - The TMI Episode

    Pregnancy Week 14 - The TMI Episode

    At Week 14 you’re truly in your second trimester—and with it comes a slew of body changes that you’re probably starting to notice—from top to bottom. Yup, there’s a lot more to pregnancy than just growing a baby bump, even for those seemingly blessed with a “perfect” bump on a “perfect” body. There’s nary an inch of your body that goes untouched during these 9 months, not always for the worst (hello, big boobs and lustrous hair!). And sometimes for the worst (thanks but no thanks pregnancy acne). In today’s TMI episode, we focus on your changing pregnant body.

Great content, repeat ads

Love the ladies and the content - but please switch up your ads! I basically have the ‘Hi I’m Julia...’ schpeel memorized. Totally get the ads, but if we could switch them up that’d be great! Otherwise love the podcast!

Pretty good

I like listening to these women talk about pregnancy. I wish the episodes were a little longer and that they interviewed some medical professionals to back up their points. Or even just other people working outside of Parents magazine. They seem to have a formula where they talk about how big the baby is (comparing to foods and other objects) plus two other topics. I wish there was either less about the size of the baby (well, maybe that’s because there are 294587291 apps out there that will automatically do this comparison for you) or that there were more segments with content. I do enjoy listening and will continue to up until my baby is born.

With me all the way!

I really enjoyed this podcast! I always felt good and at ease after listening to the valuable tips and insight. Luckily I started listening at the beginning of my pregnancy, and repeated a few episodes as the weeks went by. So short and so sweet! Thank you ladies for being with me during this crazy ride! Xoxo
