Countdown to my Birth

Our first giveaway this week is a countdown calendar/pregnancy journal for new parents preparing for the birth of their baby. Countdown to My Birth: A Day-by-Day account from your baby's point of view is a page-a-day calendar that covers the forty weeks from conception to birth.

I was lucky enough to have met author Julie B. Carr in Las Vegas last week as she explained to me the idea behind this calendar. Her publisher, Meadowbrook Press, kindly offered this pregnancy journal (with stickers) to us to give away for our blogoversary celebration!

Each day will help expectant parents enjoy the milestones along the journey, from discovering the baby's first heartbeat to the point in which baby is able to open his eyes and begin to look around.

This makes a great gift, not only for new parents to learn more about their baby's development in utero, but for any parent-to-be.

To register to win, simply comment below with the expectant due date of your new baby or a baby you know and love. Don't forget to include your email address so I can follow up with the winner. Email addresses will not be published.

One winner will be selected at random at the end of the week.

Hi Sondra

My best friend just found that she is pregnant with her first baby due April 9. She's actually going in this week to hear the heartbeat for the very first time. : )

I was born on the 8th of April so I'm cheering for an early delivery for your best friend. Congrats to her!

My best friend in th e whole world just found out she's pregnant! Her baby is due at the end of May. She is so excited, and is already buying tons of books and toys to prepare. I'd like to give this to her to help her enjoy each day that counts down to the birth of her baby.

My Cousin and a friend are both expecting babies. This calendar will surely make a nice gift for either of them. My cousin is due in April and friend is due in March.

Thanks for sharing!

I wish I had more calendars to share with each of you. One winner will be chosen at the end of this week.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out the giveaways each day this week.

I am a gestational surrogate for a young couple. The embryo transfer is scheduled for 10/25/2008. The baby will be due the middle of July. This would be great for the intended parents. That way they could feel more apart of the pregnancy.
