This book should perhaps be subtitled "or everything that can ever go wrong during the course of a pregnancy". I do like the week by week developmental information and diagrams, but I think the author spends a bit too much time on the extremely rare things that can go wrong - especially since this is just a general pregnancy book. I guess that's pretty par for course though for mainstream medical/pregnancy books, which I find quite unfortunate. The book could definitely use a much better treatment for natural childbirth - it is only mentioned in week 40, far too late to take a class, think about it, learn anything more, etc. But, again, I suppose I shouldn't be surprised as this is a very mainstream book.read more

I much prefer this book to the "What to Expect When you are Expecting" book that is so popular. This book gives you more details and less moments of intense worry about your growing child.It is also wonderful to be able to read just a few pages to keep up to date on your developing child when your toddler is begging for attention.read more

I really liked the way this book was organized. I felt that some of the information at the very end was incorrect (i.e. saying that under no circumstances can you eat or drink while in labor when my hospital provides jello and other light snacks to laboring mamas). I also found myself at week 38 of my pregnancy and thinking "Geez, what if I go into labor now and I don't make it through weeks 39-41?" Needless to say I quickly finished the book, throwing the weekly routine to the wind. :) Overall, I felt that this book was really good and would recommend this book over the other standard book (What to Expect When You're Expecting) but feel that reading both is really the way to go.read more
