Most women consider this the pregnancy Bible. :] I have read it with each of my pregnancies and while I don't agree with a lot of the "do what the doctor says every time" mentality, it does have some great info about each stage of pregnancy and what the baby is doing, etc. I enjoyed it for that part.
