One of the greatest resources on AlphaMom — a wonderful site full of great resources, published by friend of CMP Isabel Kallman — has to be the Zero to Forty pregnancy calendar, for wonderful week by week support and humor. It was originally written by Amy Storch of the blog Amalah while she was pregnant with her second son. Not only is it informative (though Amy is not a doctor, and she does not play one on TV), it’s also hilarious. Just try not to pee yourself, mamas.
Now you can sign up for pregnancy calendar weekly newsletters delivered based on your due date. That means when you’re in week 15, you’ll get Amy’s week 15 experience right in your inbox. From the cut and dry anatomical and physiological changes, to the funny and downright freaky stuff that you run across during pregnancy, her honesty and humor are a refreshing from the medical sites’ week by week pregnancy calendars–whether you’re pregnant or not.
Seriously, I’m six years out from my last pregnancy, and I’ve been laughing reading Amy’s guide all morning. I may or may not have made up a fictitious due date and signed up for the newsletter myself.
