Motherhood book worth owning!

This book is such a beautiful resource, more than what I expected! I debated giving it away to a young lady jsut getting married but decided against it and will keep hoping that some day I can use it  Lord  willing!  This book full of quotes drew me into it. Each chapter opens up with info about what is happening at the time of  life thus it celebrates the beauty of motherhood and pregnancy with neat 3D images of a baby`s growth each week, web links to ultrasound videos, advise on proper nutrition and the need for different vitamins, and stories from other mothers.  In fact I find this a beautiful gift and would not mind ordering this as gifts for others but I will treasure my copy where I will be able to write info about my pregnancy some day!   I enjoyed all of the different categories throughout the book, and think the calender  at the back is  neat idea. It even comes with stickers to place on the days  important things happen! 

From the Back Cover

A journey worth celebrating—and remembering
Pregnancy is an amazing experience. Yes, there are challenges, discomforts, crazy hormones, food cravings, and more—but through it all, the incredible process of growing a new life is unlike any other.

In The Wonder Within You, author Carey Wickersham has captured the beautiful, life-changing moments that come throughout nine months of pregnancy. With practical advice, up-to-date information about pregnancy, and plenty of encouragement, she empowers moms-to-be to make better decisions for themselves and their babies. She also joyfully walks alongside the first generation of parents able to actually see each stage of their baby’s development.

The Wonder Within You is an excellent guide throughout your pregnancy, with special features including:
  • amazing 3-D ultrasound images that give you a week-by-week glimpse into what your baby is experiencing during every step of the growth process
  • web links and QR codes take you to incredible ultrasound videos
  • engaging chapters, each packed with timely advice on health and nutrition
  • fun quotes and memorable stories from other moms
  • space to include your own thoughts and feelings, including letters to your child
The perfect companion to your pregnancy experience, this beautiful book is designed to become a keepsake you and your child will treasure forever.

Includes pregnancy calendar with stickers!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts are my own


  1. I love this book. I've read the regular week-by-week books, and this is far and away outstanding. It's personal in so many ways that a normal book cannot be. The development information is not only thorough, but put personally, plus the 3D/4D pictures and videos, journal/letter sections, and everything else make this a great way to really bond with baby and record memories for a lifetime reminiscing. It has a “Did you know?” fact/trivia section that’s fun, a calendar with stickers for your plans and appointments, quotes and stories. So thorough and fun!! Over and above anything else! I highly recommend this book!

  2. Great Heather! This is really a fun book.
