I was thinking about which book or author I wanted to feature today and it hit me that I haven’t done a post on pregnancy books.  That is where it kind of all starts with Wordy Wednesday so, I had to go into my library to backtrack.  I remembered the books that I liked right away and I had quite a few!  You can never have to many books in my opinion.  Ever.
