In the category of pregnancy reads, I would say this is one of my favorites and most useful books. In the category of weekly updates of what is most likely happening in your pregnancy, this is by far the best book of it's kind. I had so many recommendations to read a different book that has been... ...more

This was the least helpful of the pregnancy books I have used. It does have a chapter for each week, but the information is not entirely well dispersed, and the tone of the writing I found off-putting. The thing that bothered me the most was the author's attitude toward induction and other interv... ...more

I thought this book was more informative than what to expect when you're expecting. It gives you a lot of information about the growth and development of the baby instead of just answering questions. It also made me slightly neurotic though. ...more

Horrible Horrible Book! AVOID! AVOID! This man is a terrible writer and gives terrible advice. Stay away from this book. It won't help you in any way. ...more

Really, this book is kinda dumb.

I really liked the way this book was organized. I felt that some of the information at the very end was incorrect (i.e. saying that under no circumstances can you eat or drink while in labor when my hospital provides jello and other light snacks to laboring mamas). I also found myself at week 38... ...more

I read most of this book . . . had to skip the last few weeks because Ms. Amelia decided to show up a little early. ;-) I enjoyed learning about what we were growing each week. Reading a chapter each week was something that I really looked forward to each Tuesday evening. Surprisingly, I must be... ...more

On par with "What to Expect..." Another book that offers insight into how your body is changing and how your baby is growing week by week. Nice exercises included if you can bring yourself to exercise with a fetus sitting on your bladder.

What I'll say about most of these books - you'll get a lot... ...more
