This book was wonderful while I was expecting my first child. It went into much more detail than what to expect so it was nice to read both and really see and read about what was going on. I reccommend it to any expecting mother.
A very interesting week-by-week guide to fetal development as well as changes in mom's body. Full of helpful tips and other information. I often found myself reading ahead! I liked that it was broken down by week, so I didn't have to wait so long between chapters!

I loved these Week by Week books - both the pregnancy book and the Baby's First Year book. The weeks don't always exactly correspond with where you or your child are at, but it is still very helpful to have a general idea of developmental stages. I especially enjoyed the pictures in actual size that depict typical fetus growth. It really makes it all seem very real!
