I have been reading some pregnancy/parenting books lately. It seems fitting since we are expecting soon. Mostly I have been disappointed. In regards to pregnancy, mine has been an easy one and most of the symptoms that the books suggest I should experience, I have not experienced. I have some great recommendations for parenting books, but haven’t felt the need to start them yet since I still have about 9 weeks to go.
Anyways, I just finished reading And Baby Makes Three by John Gottman and Julie Schwartz Gottman. To be quite honest, this read like a marital counseling book targeted at couples who had not been married very long. Daniel and I have almost a decade of marriage under our belts and the issues discussed in the book are essentially non issues for us. So maybe a good read for a young couple or a newly married couple, but not for us. I need to find a book that addresses people who have chosen to wait a significant amount of time before they decided to have children.
