Personally, I think there is no better reference for a woman who is pregnant. Granted, they are a little paranoid about some things (such as taking medications and what you eat, etc.) but overall the information is very helpful, particularly with its question & answer format. I highly recommend this book.

I hated this book. I tell everyone I know who's pregnant never to read it. It focuses so much on every little thing being a sign of disaster, almost all of which are the mother's fault for not eating the right thing/sleeping the right way/whatever. There is no joy in this book, only gloom. Try the Sears & Sears Baby Book instead!

I think that this book is one of the worst pregnancy books that I have ever read! Every chapter is full of what can go wrong with your baby, the pregnancy and birth. Yes it does have lots of pregnancy info. But it represented so negatively, and doesn't even come close to representing the wonder, joy, beauty, and anticipation that should be felt by expectant moms.

My favorite pregnancy book is the Mayo Clinic Guide to Pregnancy. I read this book during my first pregnancy, and I though it was great, answering all my questions, but it also made me depressed and scared. It wasn't until my next child that I got other books to compare to it. There are many other books that are far, far better than this one.

As a natural childbirth educator in training and a normal birth advocate, I cannot endorse this book. While there is some very good information, there is a definite bent toward extremely "medical" childbirth.

This book is kind of vague. It is also set up to prepare you for a hospital birth instead of a natural one.

All the standard medical advice in one place, and many details about what is happening to you and your baby. For that, it is good. However, I would recommend looking into more natural ways of dealing with pregnancy and childbirth. Pregnancy is not an illness--it's a natural process for most women, and doesn't need the medical interventions most of us come to expect with any pregnancy in America.

I didn't really like the way this book emphasizes the mother's weight so much. There are many more important issues to focus on that would give the book a more positive bent. There was plenty of good information, but none that cannot be gleaned from surfing the internet or looking at other childbirth books. I also wish it had more information and guidance about unmedicated birth, which is best for the baby.

A good basic book about the first months. It does, however, minimize the "discomforts" of pregnancy (especially in that third trimester) and provides an unrealistic view of the options available to birthing mothers during labor and delivery (take note if you live in a small town). A good book, but not the definitive resource on pregnancy.

This book was helpful in giving a general idea of what to expect. But please know that it is not going to contain everything to be expected. Everyone is individual and can experience more or less, or none of what is mentioned. The book also briefly discusses what is happening in the womb, which is really neat! Congratulations, if you are expecting a miracle!

This book was most informative during my pregnancy with my first child. I learned questions to ask my OB/GYN that might have been skipped otherwise and it also helped me to not bug the doctor 24/7 with common situations that new mothers would totally "freak out" over. This was undoubtedly the best book I read during my pregnancy and I would certainly recommend it to new mothers.

My pic is different and it is a revisted and expanded second edition. THIS book was a God send. It was like a Bible to me while I was pregnant the first time and a great asset still during my second pregnancy. I believe this is still the most saut after book for new mothers today. It has sound advice, great medical advice, month by month things to watch for and to be aware of. It was so valueable to me that I read it daily. If you are expecting, you will want to have this book on hand for a variety of reasons... but first and foremost you will want it because it is reliable and a wealth of information!

While the format is friendly, this book is not my favorite book for pregnant mamas to read. Some of the information is presented in a rather alarmist way and complementary therapies are either not discussed or discouraged. Try "The Pregnancy Book" by William & Martha Sears, or "Pregnancy, Childbirth and the Newborn" by Penny Simkin for a more balanced read. Pregnancy is not a disease, don't read books that promote fear!

It is a book that trains you, prepares you to know what the Dr. is going to do. It does not give you alternatives that are very common now, and it does not account to why you must have certain tests done.
It is very hospital friendly, meaning it will make all hospitals happy if all their patients would just comply with their impositions.
It is better to read a book that has the benefit of the mother and child in mind rather than the comfort of the Doctor and his/her staff.
I recommend to read Bradley Method of Child birth.

In general I thought this was a good reference book. Not that it was entirely accurate, but it helped identify things that came up in my pregnancy that worry a first time mother (and calm a first time mother). Also, it actually helped me identify a condition that even my doctor wasn't aware of and I was suffering from (PUPPS)!

At this point, this book is pretty much required reading for pregnancy. Seriously... they should just issue you a copy as you walk into the OB's office! But they don't so I'm lising it here. The book is arranged by months of pregnancy, so you know... "what to expect"... and also has a very good index for looking up particular symptoms. It will not, however, tell you when the baby is coming. I know this because I keep looking for a book that will do that. Apparently, it is still up to God. LOL But in the meantime, take it from a mom of 7... you DO need a good pregnancy book as a guide so that you and your OB can be friends (as opposed to the enemy who keeps clogging his phone lines). This is the book for you.

You can't have a baby without this book. Although the internet makes it easier to know what to expect, this book and the first year one are must haves! And not only that, you need to read them! Lots of common sense and wisdom, and although I didn't have this until my 4th child (when my oldest was 28 and I was 48!), I learned a lot and was reassured when I had questions.

I also recommend the website and daily e-mail Heidi runs. More good stuff.

Most moms have heard of this book so it practically needs no review! If you haven't though, it is sort of a pregnancy "bible"! It proceeds by month of your pregnancy and continues with information on postpartum period, fathers and your next baby, for example. It is a very useful book, particularly for your first pregnancy (when there are no kids to distract you from reading it cover to cover!). I don't remember encountering anything in my own pregnancies that this book didn't cover to some degree. EXCELLENT book!

Month by month information on pregnancy. It's good if you have the typical problems at the typical time. If your pregnancy isn't "textbook" you may have to dig for information. For example, I have severe all day nausea during my 2nd trimester. Not the typical first trimester morning sickness. So I had to go look in the earlier months to get advice on morning sickness.

This book is really great for all the first time moms. If you aren't sure what is going on with you, and are too shy to ask anyone. It has an easy to fallow month-to-month guide so that you can know what you can expect for the up coming months. This information can help ease your anxieties of what you are going through and let you know what you might need to see your doctor about or what might just be "normal".

Be very careful with the eating recommendations in this book. They recommend almost no fat for the mother while pregnant. This results in an extremely thin baby. My child is a teen and is still thin, whereas my other child, who I ate normally while pregnant with, is normal weight. Just my opinion, of course, but take this book with a grain of salt.
