The last months, weeks, and days of a woman's pregnancy are full of anticipation.
Moms- and Dads-to-be and their families and friends are all wondering when the
baby will arrive, how the delivery will go, and—if the baby's sex is not known
in advance—whether it will be a girl or a boy. NOVA Online invites you to join
in as the final countdown begins for one woman who has agreed to share her
experience in real time. Each week, Judith Richards, a 36-year-old journalist
from the San Francisco Bay area, will write in to NOVA and share her thoughts
in her final weeks of pregnancy. Read
on to find out more about Judith and her husband Sam, who are expecting their
baby on or around December 18, 2001, and check back often as we join Judith on
the road to becoming a first-time mother.
