“What To Expect When You're Expecting is a great book to have, it was my bible throughout my pregnancy. The internet was a huge resource for me, but this book provides a lot of answers that you wouldn't have even thought of asking the questions to! Definitely the best book on pregnancy out...”see full review » see other reviews »

“I felt somewhat silly reading this book only in my 7th month of pregnancy, but I still found plenty of great information to make me understand why this is such a pregnancy must-read.

“What to Expect When You’re Expecting by Heidi Murkoff
This book has been around for an astounding 28 years (and have been through several revisions) and is known for many as a staple in the genre – in fact it was the first book I thought of when I found out I was pregnant.
This book has a lot of good information – but a lot for me to skip over. I’m not having multiples (thank goodness), I’m not over 35, etc but obviously it’s a good overview for people of all ages and all types so it’s good info to have, even if I didn’t need it. Some of the sections made me roll my eyes, such as “What if I am taking cocaine or other hard drugs while pregnant?” 1 – If you don’t know the answer, you probably should not be pregnant and 2 – I have a feeling those that are into hardcore drugs probably aren’t too antsy to buy this book, probably not the top of their priorities (I could be wrong in my assumptions, but come on), but hey whatever, can’t say the book doesn’t cover it’s bases. With the use of internet today many of the questions and concerns can be found just as quickly on one of the thousands of pregnancy sites as it is to sift through this book. And of course, never take a book as the know-all of everything, always best to consult a doctor with any serious questions – telling your doctor “well the book said…” will only lead to eye rolling. An informational book but best taken in small chunks.
