baby and pregnancy mag

does any one buy the mag even though not even trying yet? so tempted to subscribe but i dont know if i am being a little bit silly when not even planning to try til end of this year. mind you thats only 9 months xxx


  • i myself have been buyin them for about 2 years, i keep all the freebies in a lol box lol, but i was gettin more and more sad as i wasnt trying, so now i just but the ones that look good, but in may/june ill be getting them every month, they are a very good source of information so wen u r trying ur fully prepared x
  • hey girls thank you for your posts- i took the plunge and bought april's copy of prima baby and preg. I read it cover to cover and feel even more full of knowledge and now also have a portable baby changing mat lolololol
    I dont think i'll purchase one ever month but as you said, knowledge is power and by this time next year i want to know as much as i can!
    good luck with your baby making/planning/looking after, which ever stages you are at
  • I may just have to purchase April's copy myself...could do with lots of information on the subject being very new to it all xx
  • go for it! i felt was all really useful even tho i am not yet trying myself. the week by week guide to what i shappening to your baby when you are preg is amazing!!! also do you watch one born every minute?!?!? am addicted lolollol although the episode about prem babies made me cry

  • I may have to purchase one tonight when i go food shopping. What channel is that programme on may have to start watching it? I cry at everything so would probably ball my eyes out ha Claire xx
  • going to read my copy for the second time with a cuppa...... yes i am that sad!
    one born every minute is on channel 4 9pm on a tuesday- is great as you get to see all different sorts of births. my hubby sits there with his eyes popping out of his head!lolololol
    so when you thinking of ttc?

  • Well I popped to Asda last night after work and bought my first two baby / pregnancy magasines. I purchased Prima Baby and Pregnancy and Pregnancy and Birth (got a free baby names book). I flicked through them last night but plan to sit and read them cover to cover when I get a minute. My OH picked up the baby names book and we started discussing names which is probably very early but exciting!

    I will have to remember to watch that programme; sounds like my OH will be the exactly the same ha!

    I am going to finish my pill on 29th April (im currently on femidene, not sure of spelling) and we are going to start TTC straight away! How about you? :\) xx
  • well enjoy you're mags!!! we think about names all the time, its a tuffy as i am a teacher so there are lots of names that i associate with...lets say challenging children lol.
    plan to come off pill in summer and then ttc at end of year- fingers crossed!
    thinking of picking up a few more mags- cant hurt to read up or collect the frees stuff!

  • Yes i can see the point you are making with names ha; i can well imagine! Well we have made a date to watch that programme on Tuesday image
    I will be definitely buying more mags; thinking about getting a subscription to one.

  • ooooo.... now see i am unsure as what to do. beacuse im talking bout another 8/9months or so before ttc (i am on cerezette (spelling????) and they recommend you come off six months before so thats why i am coing off in june) but desperatly want more infor so thinking to subscribe. but not sure if it is too soon. also, if you subscribe to prima b and p you get a free bottle steriliser- is that just too over prepared?!?! lololol
    which one you thinking of subscribing to? you're a bit closer to ttc than me so go for it.

  • I would probably prescribe to Prima one. Haven't decided yet. I had a nightmare with Cerezette a few years ago which prompted me to come off my pill all together the first time. I was the same on the depo injection too - some people stop all together well i discharged or was on constantly! You can never be too prepared though...
