    A Must Have Prenatal Book.

    A friend gave me this book after I found out I was expecting my first child, and out of all the 'prenatal' books I found, this one was by far the best one. I really like the fact that it had very short and to the point questions and answers. I found myself refering to it almost on a daily basis. It even has those 'dumb questions' you are to embarrassed to ask anyone. This is a must have book for any expecting mother.

    This is my 2nd time around, and the 1st thing I must have is a copy of this book

    This is the ALL TIME BEST baby book for expectant mothers. With my first pregnancy, I looked and looked for a book that could guide me and I just kind of stumbled across this one and it was like a 'GOD' send. Now that we are expecting again (after 6yrs), I knew that I must find another copy somewhere. This book is definitely one of the most comprehensive, when it comes to expectant mothers & fathers! I have recommended it to all of my friends!

    A must have for mom's and dad's

    This is the greatest pregnancy book ever, I had about 8 books and this was the most comprehensive book of all of them. It covers just about everything, has great advice, and really helps with those little questions you are too embarassed to ask. I would buy it for anyone who is pregnant, oh, and make dad read it too, it will help him understand why you are the way you are when you are in a family way.

    This book was so helpful in 1999 w/my 1st born....

    This book was given to me in early 1999, and I found it to be so helpful. Between the years I don't know what happened to it, but now that i'm expecting my 2nd born in April 2005, I had to go out and buy this book. It's a newer edition than the one I had before and includes alot more. So bottom line if I just had to go out and find this book again it's obviously worth alot to me. Thanks So Much.

    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.

    As helpful as a book can be...

    As a first time mother to be I have lots of questions and concerns. I bought this book the day I found out I was pregnant and have read and reread it three times so far. It is informative and helpful in the best way that a book can be...after all experience is the best teacher...therefore I am using the book as a guide NOT a bible to my pregnancy and asking lots of question of my doctor, friends and family members...Good luck to all.

    This book is useless!!

    I am a first time mother with absolutely no idea of what to expect from my pregnancy. After buying this book, I still don't know what to expect. There was no information about the various aches and pains that I was experiencing. It has absolutely no information to answer the questions I have about my pregnancy.

    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.

    A little scary

    As a first time expectant mother I thought this would be a great choice and with some great info. It does contain some interesting and helpful tidbits, but it also scared the heck out of me. Since this is my first experience, I admit to being a little neurotic, so everything I feel is freaking me out. The book offered no reassurance. I was glad to read I'm not the only one who felt this way.

    I don't know what I did without it!

    I didn't buy this with my first pregnancy, just flipped through it at the book store. I am glad I bought it this time around because I can read it in full detail. Great book!

    Excellent help for expectant mothers

    This book was an excellent help for me while I was pregnant. I got it right after I found out I was pregnant and it became the most used book in my house. It had the answer to about every question I had. It even answered obscure questions, like 'what is that shooting pain in my wrists that wakes me up at night.' This book will definitely save you from calling your doctor with symptoms that are not dangerous.

    Maybe if you're June Cleaver (but more neurotic)

    The authors do provide a great deal of information on medical issues related to pregnancy but their book could use a reality check. So much of it seems to be written solely for the anything-but-modern woman. Perhaps some women do gain too much weight during pregnancy, but not everyone lives in fear of this -- and not everyone is in danger of putting on too much weight, whether they follow the authors' spartan diet or not. If calorie-counting sometimes leads to anorexia and the authors are advocating calorie-counting.... Also, the section on how to endure painful post-partum sex left me bewildered. Maybe that section was written for women with the kind of sex drive that doesn't listen to pain, but the book never made it clear -- and left me wondering if the target audience was the sort of woman who feels obligated to provide her husband with sex even if doing so results in 'severe pain.'

    Very informative and easy to read!

    I recommend this book to all my expecting friends! Every woman that is pregnant has some type of concern. This book is written with answers to a lot of questions that you wanted to ask but didn't have a chance at a once a month doctors appointment. It is also very easy to read. Buy the book you'll love it!

    Makes a great bedtime story

    I absolutely loved this book. My OB/GYN gave this book to me on my first visit and I have given copies to many friends. It had a lot of the answers to questions that came up. This left my doctor's office free to answer other paitents calls. Many many nights this book became my best friend. It was the last thing I saw at night and the first thing I saw in the morning. It even helped me figure out how to control my nausea and vomiting. Once you read it, you won't leave home without it. Trust me.

    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.

    Stop the Madness!

    If you want to be terrified your entire pregnancy, this is the book for you. There is way too much medical babble and not enough basic material for first time mothers. This book does not help you to maintain a positive outlook on your pregnancy and what is happening to your body. 'What To Expect In the First Year' is a great book for after you've had the baby, but please by-pass this book unless you are a medical professional or you want to spend your entire pregnancy depressed and afraid to even move!
