Pregnancy is one of the big reasons people decide to stay home rather than have an outside the home job. The coming of a new baby means new priorities, new challenges and new bills. It is one of the most wonderful yet nervewracking times of your life... until you actually have the baby and discover still more new challenges.

Now is the time in your life where you will question everything you do. So will the people around you. Get used to being told that you're doing everything wrong (and ignoring it as necessary). Well-meaning people will make your life more difficult than it has to be by telling you how they handled their pregnancy. Remember, this is your baby. Do your research and do what you believe is right by your child.
