This is my wife's and my first pregnancy, with twins actually, and this is the best of three books we've read (so far). It's an excellent first pregnancy book, with well organized chapters, that follow the stages of pregnancy from beginning to birth. The author covers the good and openly addresses the bad without terrifying the parents to be, something that reviews of other books warned about.

We've asked our Dr dozens of questions, and her answers have been very consistent with the advice and guidance in this book, which provides a lot of confidence in the details and research provided by the author and technical reviewer.

The multiples chapter was helpful, especially for us, covering birthing scenarios, extra testing needs, and the challenges of twin feeding. I read a twins book after this one, and most everything factual was review, just with a different persons stories and point of view. This books recommended increased caloric intake for twins is 600 calories, which our Dr. agrees with. Other books we've read has said 1000 for twins to which our Dr. says no way, too much.

The breast feeding versus bottle feeding section was biased towards breast feeding. There is a Pros and Cons comparison for breast feeding and bottle feeding, that is laughably biased. The bottle feeding pros and cons are just another opportunity to make you feel guilty about not breast feeding. In the multiples chapter the attitude towards breast versus bottle is more balanced because of the increased work load of extra babies, but that shouldn't be part of the comparison. I'd prefer she state the facts known about breast feeding advantages, and get on to the techniques without the guilt.

This was the only pregnancy book I bought and I feel like it gave me all the answers I needed to know. I especially liked how each month would tell me how big the baby was and what I could expect my body to be going through. Also gave a break down on each blood test and other tests that would be happening and when so you were already informed before going to the doctors appointment. Overall, great book and great price. Would definitely recommend.

Bought this while expecting my first baby. It was different than What to expect when expecting, I read both and this book offer different or more information. It has cute little drawings and illustrations.

i think i bought about every pregnacy book out there when i was expecting my daughter and this one has to be my favorite. I think i have the 3rd edition, but it can only improve, right?

most of the other books seemed to be such technical slow reads. this one has the same info, it is just broken down in a nice, easy to follow manner.

highly reccomed this to anyone expecting a baby:)!

I got a lot of good information about pregnancy from this book. My only complaint is that it is set up in "months" and not "weeks". I would have rather known what was going on week by week instead of month by month.

This book is good - I have others that are more medical - this is more general what happens to you. This was good - but I like the more medical in depth explanations personally. It depends what you are looking for.

Just in the early stages of my first pregnancy, so I can't say anything about the accuracy of the book, but it seemed pretty comprehensive. I was able to borrow the e-book from my local library for free, which was a plus (and the reason I chose this book to read)

Quite informative. Covers all the essential facts and information required for a first time to be parent. Also chronologically arranged so that the need to know info is presented as the baby grows.
