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

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.

“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.”
