What to Expect When You're Expecting


'The first book you should buy after the pregnancy test comes back positive!' Sally Wendkos Olds, co-author of THE COMPLETE BOOK OF BREASTFEEDING With over 14.5 million copies in print, Australia's pregnancy bible WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU'RE EXPECTING is the iconic, must-have book for parents-to-be. This is THE book for a new generation of expectant parents. Its up-to-date information reflects what's new in pregnancy and what's relevant to today's pregnant women. Heidi Murkoff has rewritten every section, answering dozens of new questions and including new by-demand material, such as detailed week-by-week fetal development guides in each of the monthly chapters, more on pre-conception, and a section on carrying multiples. More comprehensive and reassuring than ever, the fourth edition incorporates the most recent developments in obstetrics and addresses current lifestyle trends: from tattooing and belly piercing to Botox and aromatherapy. There's more than ever on practical matters: an expanded section on workplace concerns; physical - with more symptoms and more solutions; emotional - more advice on riding the mood rollercoaster; nutritional - from low-carb to vegan, from junk food-dependent to caffeine-addicted; and sexual - what's hot and what's not in pregnant lovemaking; as well as much more support for the expectant dad. Overflowing with tips, helpful hints, and humour - a pregnant woman's best friend, this new edition is easier to use than ever before. Hide synopsis

Just as I expected - a great informational book on pregnancy!


Great Book

by Crys on Sep 3, 2009

This book is a great book, lets you know about anything you can almost think about. However, it does have a lot of information and i recently gave it to my sister in law and she got kind of scared in knowing all the bad stuff that can happen... every chapter brakes it down for you on what to expect your body going through. I would recomend this book to any pregnate woman or anyone trying to get pregnate.
