Pregnancy Confidential is a week-by-week podcast hosted by editors from Parents and Fit Pregnancy and Baby.

And it'll have you chuckling all along the way.

Parents Editor in Chief, Dana Points, leads each week's discussion. She's joined by Parents and Fit Pregnancy and Baby editors who all share (and sometimes overshare) their own pregnancy and new-parent stories and experiences.
Each episode includes:
- My Baby is How Big?!? - A wry examination of what your baby's size is comparable to this week. (Kumquat, anyone?)
- On My Mind - A spirited and informative discussion about what's likely filling your thoughts during this stage of pregnancy. Nothing is off limits!
- Don't Sweat It! - There's so much to worry about during pregnancy, but this segment focuses on something you can stop worrying about. (You're welcome!)
All episodes available for download now—start listening based on your week of pregnancy.
