Pregnancy Book

Does anyone have any suggestions on a good pregnancy books I can read? I read reviews that the book, What to Expect when you are expecting is not a good book. Any suggestions?


Thanks in advance

    I just read the girlfriends guide to pregnancy and I think it was both informative and funny, but mostly funny!

    I am reading what to expect and I like it, but there are a ton out there. I also heard the girlfriends guide was good.

    The Mayo Clinic one -- Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy, I think -- was my favorite. I was not a fan of WTE.

    The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Baby was cute and easy to read, felt like I was talking to an experienced mom and not a boring doctor. Guess its all on exactly what you're looking to read.

    My husband and I picked up a few books last night after the gynecologist confirmed my pregnancy. He wound up getting The Caveman's Pregnancy Companion and I picked up Your Pregnancy Week by Week since I heard awful things about What to Expect.

    I'm just curious, how come so many of you ladies don't like what to expect?  I'm reading it now, but haven't really seen anything yet that bothered/worried me, so I'm kinda curious what parts made you not like it?  (and I'm not being snarky btw,

    Everything I've heard about it rubs me the wrong way. From what I understand, she isn't even a doctor but she ticks off all of these rare disorders and deformities your baby could have. Generally making the mother fearful and worried throughout&nb

    I love Your Pregnancy: Week by Week. It goes into detail each week more than WTEWYE. Also, in the beginning weeks it gives you a picture of baby's actual size. I always liked looking at that.

    Girlfriend's Guide is funny and a "tell it like it is"

    OOHH I actually bought Girlfriend's Guide last night! I like it, and think it's clever and funny. Your Pregnancy Week by Week is also fantastic as well. It's super informative.
