4 Aug Hi Lady! It's the first time you're doing this, isn't it? It's exciting and terrifying all at the same time. Up until this point being pregnant, becoming a mother has. Whats more important reading the books or getting the gear? Babble asked a real mom what she recommends to first-timers -read her pregnancy tips here. Let us guess: You've just made it home from the hospital, are totally exhausted, and starting to get a little overwhelmed by all this new mom stuff. (Are we right?) Boy, do we hear you. Those first few weeks (hey, even those first few months) with baby can be pretty intense. With so much to remember and so many "firsts" to.
