The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Baby Booksneeze Book Review

The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Baby 
Everything You Need to Know to Survive (and Love) Your Pregnancy 
By Erin MacPherson Published by Thomas Nelson

Book Description

Everything you need to know about pregnancy—from weight gain to stretch marks to figuring out how to rely on Christ through the ups and downs of the next nine months.
This comprehensive guide is packed with information that every newly pregnant Christian mama needs—including:
  • help for pregnancy insomnia, morning sickness, weight gain and more
  • advice on how to maintain a godly attitude and outlook during pregnancy—even when you're feeling anything but godly
  • what to expect from doctor check-ups, your encounters with the scale and labor and delivery
  • tips on how to survive food cravings, aversions, and even dreaded pregnancy exercise
  • healthy eating advice for pregnancy that doesn't outright ban ice cream sundaes
  • ideas on how to keep your marriage a priority when you're pregnant, including a guide for Christian dads-to-be and even pregnancy sex tips
This detailed guide takes you through each trimester with helpful tips, humorous accounts, and supportive spiritual advice--all with a girlfriend-to-girlfriend approach that will help moms feel comfortable as they navigate this life-changing time.

My Thoughts:

There is nothing more exciting and frightening than pregnancy and moms to be will find no shortage of advice.  The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Baby is a rather unique approach to offering pregnancy advice.  The book presents advice that is sure to make any mom to be smile throughout her pregnancy.  I loved the first trimester wardrobe tricks in Chapter 1.  Leggings, yoga pants and so many secrets to looking great even when you're not feeling so hot.  

The Time Out for Mom sections scattered throughout the book offered great scripture and a brief devotional and was one of my fave sections. 
The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Baby is witty, fun and just like talking with a big sister and the pregnancy resources found in Chapter 15 were hands down one of the most creative takes on pregnancy I've ever read.  The chapter included a few pages highlighting the Bible as a resource.  Funny when you think about it, but amazingly true once you read it.  I could share some of my other fave pregnancy resources but why when you can check out The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Baby for yourself or for the mom to be in your life.

The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Baby is refreshing and moms-to-be will smile as MacPherson presents a fresh take on pregnancy.  Although it may appear comical and light-hearted, The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Baby offers some serious tips sure to help guide the mom-to-be understand the late night cravings, morning/afternoon/evening sickness, and all the other "joys" of pregnancy.

The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Baby would make a great baby shower gift for a new mom or a mom-to-be. 

Buy It:

The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Baby is available at bookstore nationally and also on Amazon .  I am looking forward to checking out the other books in the Christian Mama's Guide series and hope to share my thoughts with you on them as well.

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
