What to Expect When You're Expecting by Heidi Murkoff, Arlene Eisenberg, Sandee Hathaway.

Publisher: Workman Publishing Company, Inc.
Format: Hardcover, 624pgs

Also consider a perfect companion for this book: What to Expect Pregnancy Planner.

This revised third edition of the popular pregnancy guide offers the authoritative yet reassuring advice that parents have come to rely on from all the titles in the What to Expect series. The book is arranged by month, from pregnancy test through labor and delivery. Each section offers answers to frequently asked questions, along with features such as 'What You May Be Feeling' and 'What You May Be Concerned About.' Every imaginable issue is addressed, including the small but nagging subjects that women may not want to discuss with their doctors, such as how their bodies will look at seven months, or why some pregnant women 'glow' while others have acne. While readers who already own this book won't have to rush to buy the new edition, the revised volume does offer a number of excellent expanded sections and illustrations, including a more detailed discussion of postpartum depression. There are also new illustrations and more text on breast-feeding, with diagrams showing different feeding positions. The travel section offers specific suggestions for 'jettisoning jet lag' in addition to standard advice on traveling while pregnant. This book remains an indispensable guide for pregnant women and their partners.

Heidi Murkoff is the co-author of the What to Expect series with her mother Arlene Eisenberg and sister Sandee Hathaway. In addition, she runs the What to Expect Foundation, which she co-founded with her mother, Arlene Eisenberg. The Foundation promote pre-natal health in low-income areas and recently published a free low-literacy pregnancy guide. Heidi writes monthly '' columns for Baby Talk and Parenting magazines and lectures nationwide on parenting and pregnancy issues.

Arlene Eisenberg worked on all three editions of What to Expect When You're Expecting and remained active in the What To Expect Foundation until her death in February 2001. She was also co-author, with Heidi Murkoff, of the 'What to Expect' magazine columns.

Sandee Hathaway holds a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from Boston University. An experience RN with a specialty in obstetrics and neonatal care.

This book is OK, but there are better books for pregnancy out there. I didn't like the way it was organized, and the way it is written seems to make it more likely to contribute to pregnancy fears rather than easing them.user review

I stopped reading this book after 2 months. I used it as a quick reference throughout. It was too hard to read as it would make me nervous. user review

I found this book helpful because it's full of information, however, it can easily make you paranoid about everything. If read it needs to be taken lightly.user review

I didn't find this book that helpful. Some of the chapters were too scary to read. It made me cry several times thinking that there must be something wrong with my baby. The one for 1 year olds is way better.user review
