    GREAT REFFRENCE

    AS AN EXPECTING NEW MOM I CALL THIS BOOK MY BABY BIBLE. IF I HAVE AN ACHE,PAIN OR GENERAL QUESTION I LOOK IT UP IN THE BOOK AND GET SOME GREAT ADVICE FOR MY GENERAL CONCERNS. THE BEST ADVICE I CAN GIVE IS TO ASK YOUR DOCTOR AS MANY QUESTIONS AS POSSIBLE. NOT EVERYTHING CAN BE EXPLAINED IN A BOOK BUT FOR QUICK GENERAL REFRENCE THIS BOOK COVERS IT ALL.

    Very Helpful

    I thought the book offered as much information as it could. I experierenced many symtoms that the book spoke of and was relieved to hear that they were pregnancy related and not anything more serious. Every pregnancy is different so this book, I guess, is not for everyone, but I was glad my doctor gave it to me as a gift. I recommend it to all my friends who are pregnant.

    Almost Perfect

    I found this to be a very informative and helpfull book, but the diet section is too extreme. It makes it sound like you will kill your baby if you eat one thing that they consider 'bad'. This is simply not true and for anyone who is newly pregnant and wondering what to eat, just use your common sense, eat what you know is healthy and don't stress yourself out over everything you eat...that will do more damage than the junk food ever could. Your instincts will kick in if you already know what is healthy. If not see a dietician for a more realistic plan.

    For Guys Too

    I read my wife's copy of this book when we were expecting and it helped me a lot to understand what she might be feeling and going through. I was often able to answer her questions about pregnancy because I read faster than she did.

    Heaven sent

    I absolutely loved this book. I used it as a survival guide during my first pregnancy and I am still using it during my second.

    I Expect Authors

    I expect authors to give sound advice. But, it must be realistic. A little too much concern with 'diet' and weight gain. No humor - we all need a few laughs as we get big as cows (and loving it without guilt) thank you very much! It's a book that is worth the money and will certainly help. Just don't get too serious about the whole experience of what to eat when. Enjoy your time being pregnant and stay healthy.

    It's pretty good in today's world

    I like the book because it's pretty good in today's world. It does leave a little to be desired in the fitness area. If you're concerned with your weight, it might make you mad. It tries to focus on weight gain a bit more than is expected. My doctor answered my personal questions and that's what everyone should do in any area. Ask your own OB about your specific body. Don't take any book too literally. Remember, we're all different. My OB suggested another book for a little later on, Mommy-CEO, by Jodie Lynn. Similar to expecting, it has tips on health, but unlike 'What to' it has real answers for family life from birth to teens. Both books are designed to help parents with as close to real life situations as possible. When in doubt, just ask your doctor. If you're over-weight and are pregnant, walk as much as possible as long as your doctor says it's ok.
