What to Expect When you are Expecting – The Movie

One of the first things that happens after the pregnancy test is the arrival of the book “What to Expect When you are Expecting” by Heidi Murkoff. I don’t think I know of one woman who didn’t have this book in their house during their pregnancies. Not that is the end all be all of all pregnancy books, but it is truly helpful for you to understand what is going on with your baby week by week and what you can expect to happen or not to happen. I cannot even imagine being pregnant 50 years ago (or more!) when all you had were stories passed down. As much as I love to hear everyone’s pregnancy stories and enjoy telling a few myself, there is something much more comforting about knowing what is going on day by day with your baby without the emotional or sometimes scary stories attached.

So now, imagine, this amazing book put together in movie format! Imagine some of Hollywood’s best acting out what we all have thought and read an put it into a movie.  If you go and watch the trailer  What to Expect Movie Trailer on YouTube you will be sure to have a good laugh while picturing your husband doing the same things as these guys, well maybe not quite as bad, but you can see how they can pull some of the wildest stories and bring them to you on the big screen.

    I had rough pregnancies but my favourite moments where when the babies kicked and moved. It always felt like a miracle every. single. time.

    This movie looks hilarious Anna – awesome giveaway! I’ve never been pregnant so I’ll say that my favorite restaurant in Ottawa is probably Host India in Vanier. I’m crazy for Indian food and as far as I can tell they are the best in the city. Especially their lunch :)

    I have 2 favorite things:actually GETTING pregnant and then NOT being pregnant 😉 For me the in between 40 weeks were terrible. But worth every minute of it.

    And yeah I had the What to Expect BookS too

    Something from my pregnancies that I still smile about were when I would sit on the couch and balance a bowl with my snack on my belly. Perfect height.

    hah! I wasn’t that keen on the book (too many people took it WAY too seriously) but the trailer for the movie looks pretty funny. I won’t enter because I have plans for that night, but I agree with Krista – the best part was all the wiggles and kicks (well, most of them. Who doesn’t remember a good kick to the groin from the inside, or a head trying to stuff itself up under your ribs!)

  • Brie May 9, 2012, 12:43 pm
