Overview

A totally revised and expanded new edition of the best-selling doctor-authored pregnancy book--the only one organized week by week.

Because of the rapid rate of change to both mother and baby, doctors refer to a pregnancy in increments of weeks, not months or even trimesters; expectant mothers look for changes and compare the details of their pregnancies based on the same weekly schedule. The best-selling Your Pregnancy Week by Week doles out focused information in this medically appropriate way, making it the most mom-recommended pregnancy guide on the market.

Now carefully brought up-to-date, this expanded Fifth Edition will also be the most medically current and comprehensive pregnancy guide available. Always reliable and now re-designed to be even more accessible, weekly chapters include illustrations, descriptions of baby's growth and developmental milestones, information about a mother's average weight gain and what she might be feeling or becoming aware of, and the medical testing that corresponds to the week in question. New features include:

  • Information on cutting edge obstetric technologies-from 3D ultrasound to pre-natal genetic testing
  • The very latest diet, nutritional and fitness recommendations for expectant mothers
  • A new chapter devoted to overdue (post-term) pregnancies
  • An expanded 15-page glossary of pregnancy and childbirth terms
  • A handy Due Date Prediction Calendar

"...the author of several best-selling pregnancy guides takes the mother-to-be through her pregnancy step by step, addressing the baby's growth and development, diet and exercise, and important precautions."

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book is a worthy addition in this subject area. Its format, information, and language are both highly accessible and current. As the title states, pregnancy is followed week by week. A chapter is devoted to each week, covering six basic areas: baby size; mother's size; baby's growth and development; changes in the mother; how the mother's behavior affects development; and things ``you should also know.'' A vast range of material is included, making this a bargain for the price. Similar to but more comprehensive (and up to date) than When You're Expecting by Arlene Eisenberg & others (Workman, 1984), this would be an excellent complement to the more recent The Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons Complete Guide to Pregnancy ( LJ 4/15/89).-- Kathleen L. Atwood, Pomfret Sch. Lib., Ct.
From the Publisher
Mid-OhioValleyParent, January 2012
“This has been a great resource for moms-to-be throughout the years and this latest edition is no exception!” 

InfoDad.com, 1/12/12
“This excellent book…certainly does make the process from pregnancy to birth (and for the first month or so afterwards) much easier to cope with and understand…The sensitivity and care with which Curtis and Schuler present all information—positive, negative or neutral—remain hallmarks of this fact-packed and thick oversize paperback…Reading it provides much of the assurance of a knowledgeable 24-hour-a-day companion who can take you through the many vicissitudes of pregnancy with a firm and knowing hand. Even women who have been pregnant before will benefit from the information here—and those in their first pregnancies will find the book invaluable.”
 

SacramentoBook Review, February 2012
“Most women will find that this book contains everything they need for a healthy pregnancy.”

Bookviews blog, March 2012 “As comprehensive a body of information about pregnancy as you will find anywhere.”

    Best Weekly Pregnancy Guide

    In the category of pregnancy reads, I would say this is one of my favorites and most useful books. In the category of weekly updates of what is most likely happening in your pregnancy, this is by far the best book of it's kind. I had so many recommendations to read a different book that has been around, but I am so glad that I found this one, in comparison the "other" book has nothing on this one. When curious about this book in it's republication, I found several negative reviews that talked about how it could cause a person to become neurotic knowing all the possible things that can go wrong. Really, what I can tell you from reading this cover to cover, is that it definitely has information on a bit of everything, most plausible diseases and complications. When I was reading this, if I came to a section on smoking mothers, it obviously did not apply to me, so I skipped over it. Same with other categories such as ethnic specific diseases and so on.

    I find that this book is a wealth of information. Reading through can tell you plausible things to go wrong, but it also tells you all the miracles that are occurring step by step along the way. There are drawings that show about what the development looks like for your babies stage. There are fabulous exercise suggestions for each week and I would easily say that this is medically current and a comprehensive guide. With my background in nursing I would suggest this book highly.

    Highly Recommended...burn any other books given to you!! You won't be disappointed.

    There are many "week by week" books out there, but this by far is the best!! My doctor told me to burn any books given to me that started with "What to Expect when Expecting". She said that series tend to freak expectant mothers out and causes unnecessary anxiety. She recommended this book because the author(doctors) provided such great information surrounding pregnancy and what was going on inside our bodies. And they do it in a manor that doesn't cause you to worry. The information is delivered in such a manner that anyone can understand. The format of each week is the same and includes how big the baby is, how big you may be, what to be or not to be eating, what husbands should be doing, exercise, and then details of what is going on inside you. Another more scientific book is A Child is Born by Lennart Neilson I read these 2 books ONLY!!

    DO NOT BUY- YOU WILL WORRY WORRY WORRY

    ENJOY YOUR PREGNANCY!! IT'S A HAPPY TIME! STAY AWAY FROM THIS BOOK!!
    My mother, husband, and DOCTOR asked me to please stop reading this book because it did nothing but make me worry. Each chapter begins with a very nice overview of the baby's development for the week as well as its size and what you may be feeling, etc. I enjoyed that part. But that is only about 2 pages of each chapter. Then, the medical worries begin. Each and every chapter discusses about 5 complications during that week that you should worry about. The entire book has a very negative tone. It does not give you information to aid in the joy of pregnancy and ways to do the RIGHT thing. About 85% of the book is what happens when something IS WRONG. My favorite part (sarcasm) is when you get to the Chapter on 20 weeks (example) and they tell you a food that you should have been avoiding THE WHOLE TIME. ???!!! I think it's a great reference for a Doctor. I would want my Doctor to, obviously, know about all these things and let me know if something was wrong, but I don't find it necessary to know as it just made me worry.
    ENJOY YOUR PREGNANCY!! ITS A HAPPY TIME! STAY AWAY FROM THIS BOOK!!

    This Book will undermine your trust in the birth process

    This guide to pregnancy provides enough fear for the newly pregnant woman to swear off ever getting pregnant again. Included in each section are rare complications which are made to seem common. Women who are looking for advice to deal with normal physical changes are confronted with possibilities that can make a normal pregnancy an extremely fearful experience. Women in this culture are exposed to so much negativity surrounding birth and this book validates this, citing these unusual exceptions and making the process of childbirth increasingly frightening. If you are looking for a book to increase your confidence in the birth process and your body's ability to birth, avoid this one at all costs.

    When I bought this book, I knew that there would be a lot of advise in it that I did not agree with. However, when I read week 28 and the section about home birth I was appalled. Home birth is very safe and these authors make it sound like of you have a home birth, you will be putting your baby's life at risk! They need to do their research and look at the reality that home birth is safer than hospital births, as long as everyone is healthy. Hospitals do so many unnecessary interventions that lead to even more unnecessary interventions and often end in cesarean. I will be deleting this book from my Nook and I will never buy something written by these authors again. Research is critical when you are giving out statistics and trying to scare people.

    Book useless

    This book barely give any useful information, each week they are off with the information about the baby. It spends more time talking about things that only have small chance of happening per week. That information should be in a second area of the book and more your baby and you per week. I have found more informations via email from baby websites than this book. DO NOT BUY!!!

    Loved it!

    It actually does cover taking baths and easing morning sickness. This book got me through my pregnancy just fine and eased my worries. I didnt think it was negative,it was rather informative. And i prefer going into things with knowledge of very common (negative) possibilities as well. Pretty sure what happens will happen regardless of you reading about it first, just sayin.

    Not scary

    I think the people that find this book and What to Expect scary are people who would find any medical information scary. Often I can skim or skip sections that do not apply to me, but when something does, the information is helpful. I prefer to be informed. I think the people who have to stop reading out of fear are a bit childish. I do wish the chapters had a little more about the baby each week. Some weeks you get little more than size and weight. I would be interested in more of what is developing that week. Not a perfect book, but helpful and not scary.

    My Forst Childbirth

    In two more weeks, a year ago, my child will be one year old! Last year, I was volunteering at a camp. A tornado struck down, right when I could feel that my water had broken. The girls in my cabin were at game time, and I didn't want anyone to come to me at my expense. I locked myself in the bathroom, and before my husband (another camp counselor, who was in charge of games) and I knew it, I had given borth to a lovely little girl.

    Love this book! I feel it's a little more detailed than What to Expect because it goes week by week and explains what you are feeling, along with how the baby is developing. It's also very good to help keep you in check with weight gain. Absolutely worth the money!

    I liked the older one better--this one added in a lot heavier me

    I liked the older one better--this one added in a lot heavier medical influence and mentioned a lot of stuff that doesn't fit with my preference for evidence-based care. However, I LOVE the week-by-week description of the baby as s/he grows and normal symptoms, tips for dad, etc. If you avoid the parts that focus on stuff that can go wrong (seriously, don't read that stuff! Ever hear of a self-fulfilling prophesy?), then this is a good book to have in your pregnancy library. Definitely NOT the ONLY one you should own, however!

    Poorly written

    Don't waste your money on this book. The organization and editing is terrible, and some of the information is simply false, according to my doctor. If you want week-by-week information, use the internet, and get the Mommydocs Guide to Pregnancy for a general pregnancy guide. It is very current, and well-written.

    liked it enough to read it for both pregnancies

    I got this book at the start of my first pregnancy and found it to be very helpful. I personally preferred the layout of the book compared to some others. I thought the information was not only interesting but also helpful. For those who complain about the 'negative' information that made them stress out - It's a pregnancy quide for the general public, not a warm, fuzy, custom-tailored story of a fairy tale pregnancy. Yes, it does cover complications - but what good pregnancy guide wouldn't? {that would be irresponsible of the authors, wouldn't it?} This book caused less concern and stress for me than I got just from flipping though another popular pregnancy book about what I should be expecting.

    save yourself the stress, it's a catalog of pregnancy complications

    this book contains overwhelmingly negative information that is completely unhelpful. the worst part is the author phrases something like "don't worry, only 1 in 10 women will have a miscarriage" which is not a statement that will make a pregnant women not worry. I wasn't that worried until I found out that is 1 in 10. Then it goes on to tell you that if you are ____, _____, ______ your odds are slightly higher. Aghhhhh! Plus, i left out information that my doctor gave me (like not to take hot baths or to always eat a bedtime snack). If these tid bits were in there i couldn't find them through the catalog of pregnancy complications.
