Best pregnancy book ever,
This review is from: Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy (Paperback)
When we started trying, I bought a lot of pregnancy books. I am now towards the end of my first trimester and this book has been by far the best book I own on this topic.
This book is extremely well organized, very informative and objective, and covers a wide range of topics from pregnancy to birth to breastfeeding.
It is very easy to find what you are looking for. For each week, it explains what your body is going through, how your baby is growing and what emotional changes you could expect. In each month, there is a summary page that lists the problems you may have in that period and tells you when you should call your doctor. There are very nice drawings that show what your baby looks like and how big it is. (Some pictures are real size, for others the book tells what percentage of the real thing the picture is.)
This book had answers to all my questions so far - and I should say, being a very curious first time mom, I had a lot of questions.
Thanks and congratulations to Mayo Clinic.
