Read an Excerpt

Excerpt from Chapter 1

1. Once you become pregnant, your doctor will prescribe prenatal vitamins. Even if you have a reasonable co-pay, they can be expensive. Look for generic over-the-counter prenatal vitamins at discount stores and pharmacies to save even more money.

2. Pregnancy books, workout videos, etc., are great to have, but don't pay full price for them. They often wind up at secondhand stores, thrift shops, eBay, and consignment stores.

3. Better yet, borrow books and DVDs from the library before purchasing them. If you don't see what you want, request it via interlibrary loan.

4. Don't buy an expensive body pillow from a maternity store. Wal-Mart carries a full-length pillow for under $10. If you find it to be too overstuffed for your liking, just open a seam and remove some of the fiberfill.

5. Steer clear of expensive creams that say they can prevent or erase stretch marks. While they sound wonderful, they can't live up to their claims. Heredity gave you stretch marks, and no amount of cream will erase them. On the upside, stretch marks do tend to fade with time.

6. Talk to your employer about the benefits you'll receive while on maternity leave. Some offer paid leave if you qualify. Most offer short-term disability for a short time after your baby is born, which is meant to cover your salary (or a portion of it) while you are unable to work due to illness or injury or childbirth.

    Waste of time and money!

    All of my friends told me to go out and get the Baby Bargains book. I got this one, and couldn't believe they were raving about it. This book gives tips like "Search for yard sales for gently used baby items to save money". Really? That's just common sense. Or to go to Ebay to buy lots of stuff. It really isn't helpful. Turns out there is another book out there in it's 8th edition (and for good reason) by a very similar name, by Denise Fields. It's much better in my opinion. Don't waste your time or money reading this!
