VERY good sound reading. Every new mother needs this book. Better then calling your mother! Or mother in law! Everything a new mom might think to ask is covered. Even the new dad will find it to be interesting. Plus whenever you have a questions you can find an answer here. I received 2 copies and have put 1 away for my daughter!
this was one of the most helpful books i had when i was pregnant: it detailed each month including how you might feel emotionally, look physically, as well as what your baby was doing developmentally. It also includes a fair amount of things to watch out for, red flags etc, but it wasn't terrifing like some pregnancy books tend to be. Worth a read.
